Actually, when I was younger with Bollywood dreams in my starry eyes, I devoured stardust which is part of their groups on a weekly basis. I was telling my guest, that in the magazine that they used to have stars addresses and I wrote to Salman Khan many times.  So to be invited to be part of this event, was an honour.

I will leave you with the words of legendary cricketer Sir Clive Lloyd’s words: “I have a great affinity with India, and I’m proud to be amongst so many great people this evening.”

And it most certainly was a proud moment to be around so many great and humble people that evening.
