Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says a meeting with New York City's former mayor Michael Bloomberg has “enlightened” him and made him a “wiser” man.
“The great business magnate, financial wizard, ex Mayor of NYC, philanthropist, was at an evening dinner where I was asked to conduct a conversation with him publicly. I just did and came back a short while ago, enlightened and wiser, by the million,” Big B posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
The 72-year-old also shared a string of photographs of the event held Tuesday evening here. Amitabh noted that the experiences shared at the event were meaningful and life-altering.
"...the learning that gets imparted at these occasions are the stuff lives are made of,” he wrote.
Talking about the lessons he took back from the event, the screen icon, who has regaled cinema lovers with his critically acclaimed performances in movies like ‘Black’ and ‘Paa’, mentioned that now he has better knowledge about politics, health and environment.
“There is politics to learn…there is commerce that comes your way…there is the talk of job opportunities, of health and keeping the environs clean and much much more.
“Wisdom, knowledge and opinion ruled the dinner. Hope and expectation of some worth in common fields came through and the humbling talk of my state,” the actor added.
On the professional front, after the success of ‘Shamitabh’ Amitabh is gearing up for ‘Piku’ and ‘Wazir’.
