Due to the terrorist attacks that happened last week, Big B has denied participation in two big events. He was to be one of the main speakers at former US President Bill Clinton's Global Initiative as well as Live Earth. In order to express his solidarity with the common Mumbaikar, he refused to participate in it.
In his latest blog he has said that he was to be in Hong Kong at the invitation of ex President Bill Clinton to participate in his Clinton Global Initiative and to speak on a topic that would elevate the conditions of the universe. But he cancelled it because at this hour of terror he couldn't imagine leaving his country and going to a foreign land and discussing foreign issues that too for a foreigner.
The Clinton Global Initiative was supposed to be held on the 2nd and 3rd of December and in it global leaders of different backgrounds across the world were to meet and discuss different topics of energy resources to sustained development and other pressing issues of the times. He said he had also cancelled his participation in Live Earth, the Al Gore initiative.
It was supposed to be taking place on the 6th and 7th of December in Mumbai where lots of other Bollywood celebrities including Aishwarya, Abhishek, Farhan Akhtar and Hrithik Roshan will be performing by lending their voices to promote the cause of preventing global warming. Lots of other international artists were joining them too.According to Big B even though the money collected from the show was going for charity,he simply refuses to sing dance and perform when the city is in such crisis.
