A rare honour is being conferred upon Bollywood mega star Amitabh Bachchan. He has been invited to carry the London Olympic torch during its relay in London.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan will carry the Olympic torch Thursday, during the Olympic Torch Relay, organised ahead of the opening ceremony of the grand sporting extravaganza in London.

"The very prestigious Olympic Organizing Committee, headed by its chairman, Lord Sebastian Coe... sends an invitation to be a part of the Olympic Torch Relay tomorrow as the flame passes through London, on its final journey into the Stadium for the Opening Ceremony, London Olympics 2012," Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com Wednesday night.

The 69-year-old veteran will cover a distance of 300 metres at Southwark in the Borough of London starting around 10:50 a.m, "a moment to be hopefully remembered by the grandchildren," he added.

Big B says he is honoured to have been bestowed with an opportunity to be part of what he calls "a moment of pride".

"This is an incredible honour, humbling and so full of pride and emotion. A moment that fills me with all that reflects the spirit of the Games - a certain respectability and dignity that it offers, to all people and communities of the world, to come and compete in their respective skills in an atmosphere free from discrimination," he wrote.

The opening ceremony is to be held Friday.
