London, Sep 9 (IANS) Actor Michael Douglas will be honoured with Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film.

Douglas, 66, will receive the award, which is named after his movie legend father Kirk, at a gala dinner in California Oct 11 this year.
“The first time I saw Michael Douglas act was in a play at UC (University Of California) Santa Barbara, so it is fitting that a career that started here should be honoured here,” dailystar.co.uk quoted Kirk as saying.
“I am very happy to give this award to my favourite actor-producer who also happens to be my first-born son,” he added.
