Superstar Amitabh Bachchan,the IIFA brand Ambassador,who arrived here for the tenth edition of the awards said that he is planning to learn Chinese during his stay.

The 66-year-old star said that he wants to pick up some more Chinese words and promised that by the end of the festival he will boast of increased vocabulary of the language.

“It is wonderful and lovely to be back here. I am looking forward to the IIFA. The people are very nice and they were very generous to us when we came here for the press conference,” Bachchan said as he arrived the Venetian Macao-resort hotel.

When asked about IIFA completing a decade this year Bachchan said,”We keep working to make things better each year and hope that this year is one of them.”

As Bachchan arrived at the hotel wearing a black tuxedo and his trademark smile,his charisma was for all to see as tourists from all over the globe made a bee-line to catch a glimpse of Bollywood’s biggest star.

“I just got to know that Amitabh Bachchan is coming. My son is a great fan of him so I am trying to get a picture of him for my son,” said an excited Fionna from London,who had come here for a holiday.

Fionna said that she was not aware about the IIFA event earlier but is planning to extend her stay to watch the awards extravaganza. She also hopes to get an autograph of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ star Anil Kapoor and his daughter,actress Sonam Kapoor.

However,fans hoping to catch Bachchan at the gambling table are in for a disappointment as the mega star has no plans to visit the Venetian casino,which is the largest in the world.
