Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan was part of the Olympic Torch Relay
in London as it made the final leg of it's journey. He said in an
interview after his run:
Apart from the opening ceremony it's always best to watch it on the
television. Never ever dreamed that I'd do something like this. One is
watching the Olympics, everything that goes around it ever since you
were a kid and now you suddenly find yourself to be a part of it and a
very prominent part. I think it's a great honour to be asked to carry
the torch. I'm full of excitement, pride and do want to thank London
2012 for having asked me and invited me here.
I don't think many of them knew me, but they knew the torch that I was
carrying and that's really what was more significant and important. Yes,
there is an Indian community and they know me through my films, but I
think the torch and its value and its significance is what really
matters in the Olympics.
I hope we do well (in Olympic games). We have gradually been making a
progress as far as sports are concerned. I feel primarily the fact ever
since the economy has opened up in India we have had the facility to
invite bigger and professional talent from outside to train people
within the country and I think that is proving to be very fruitfull,
whether it is in the boxing arena or track and field defence or even
hockey, which is our national game. I hope we do well and my best wishes
to all of them.
