Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan is soon going to add one more feather to his hat.  

The southern star is all set to be awarded the Chevalier de L'Ordre Arts et Letters (The Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters) by the French government, as part of France's premiere award.

"The distinction, which is yet another laurel for the actor, is in recognition of his high level of artistic excellence and his distinguished career achievements. The award will be conferred on Kamal Haasan at a special ceremony," read a statement from Haasan.

Notably, the french award is presented "to recognize eminent artists and writers, as well as people who have contributed significantly to furthering the arts in France and throughout the world."

Other Indians who have been conferred the Chevalier Orde includes Tamil actor Sivaji Ganeshan, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Nandita Das and Shah Rukh Khan.

This news will surely delight all the fans of Kamal Haasan, who has recently recovered from a fractured leg after spending many days in the hospital.
