Chennai: Popular actor Kamal Haasan today said, he was honoured to have been chosen for the Padma Bhushan award by the government.

In a statement here, he said: "Proud to be an Indian. India is a country with great talents in various many fields. While legions await to be honoured, I am honoured that I have been chosen for Padma Bhushan by my government.
 
" I think it is sheer chance and my good fortune that I have been chosen.

"I hope that I would live long to do more to deserve this award. I don't consider this an honour for work that I have already done.

"This would be an impetus for me to do more good work, perhaps only then would I deserve it.

"My heartfelt congratulations for the other Padma Bhushan awardees especially my friend Mr Vairamuthu."
