Omega brand ambassador and Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan attended the Best of Bollywood party, a night of Bollywood celebration on 6th August 2012 in London.
Th 36-year-old actor also answered questions during a Q&A session at Omega House on Monday evening.
Abhishek, who has attended a few Olympic games while in the capital, said that it was a great privilege as he had never seen the Olympics live.
Speaking to BollyNewsUK about how the western world is recognizing Indian film fraternity members today, the Bol Bachchan actor said, “We are a large nation. We are everywhere. I think it is about time they stood up and recognised us. I think they have used the film industry a lot. I mean this with complete humility but the film industry is one of the greatest ambassadors for our nation, our actors especially and thankfully (laughs).”
“I think it is a great way to get attention of a nation and also to recognize. I believe that when a nation is doing well economically, all other aspects of that nation go up on the foreground. Today, India is a power to reckon with. Maybe not in the Olympics so far, but in terms of visibility, most definitely,” added Abhishek.
The actor will now join Aamir Khan and Uday Chopra in Chicago for the shooting of Yash Raj Films’ Dhoom:3.
