Megastar Amitabh Bachchan said it was an honour to share the stage with Nobel Prize winning child rights activist Kailash Satyarthi at an event here.
Bachchan, 72, who was a part of a bank’s annual day function last evening, said he was the wrong person to sit beside Satyarthi. “I was the wrong person especially when you have the Nobel Prize winner this year for the Peace prize Shri Kailash Satyarthi, who fought against child labor, their sale and their degradation, on the same board along with the past managing Director of the Bank, Mr Kamath…,” Bachchan posted on his blog.
The ‘Yudh’ star was impressed with the speech of the India’s Nobel Peace laureate.
“The icing was listening to the Nobel winner Shri Kailash Satyarthi and his views and impressions on the work he does for children who get sold in various societies to do labor in factories, in menial jobs and frighteningly, as child armies given guns and weapons to fight, not necessarily for the right cause,” he added.
