There was some confusion today over who would present Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan the Green Globe award as Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was supposed to hand him the trophy, was conspicuous by his absence.
Invitations sent out for the event mentioned that the Hollywood superstar would bestow the honour to junior Bachchan for his “efforts towards fighting climate change”.
“I had no clue that I was to get an award from Arnold… I was only told that I will be getting an award. I haven’t met him also…” Abhishek said.
Noted environmentalist R K Pachauri gave him the trophy.
Abhishek, who has given hits like Guru and Dhoom, also said if given an opportunity he would love to join Schwarzenegger in his cause to raise climate issues.
“If he thinks we are worthy enough of working with him then I would love to do so,” he said.Abhishek Bachchan Arnold Schwarzenegger
