Abhishek to address the famous Wharton School

Guess what’s keeping Abhishek Bachchan busy these days? Apart from films, the Bachchan junior is spending sometime polishing the speech which he is going to deliver at the world-renowned Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The actor is expected to speak on the minutiae of Indian cinema.

The 13th Wharton India Economic Forum to be held in Philadelphia on March 21 will see the face of leaders, politicians and experts from across the world, sharing their outlook and vision on the ‘Road Ahead for India’ - the title theme this year.

Abhi is happy to get a call from them and speak on the occasion. A source said, “He’s taking his role as a spokesperson at the international forum very seriously. It’s a big honor, considering Bollywood is still in its infancy and considering actors all over the world have been labeled intellectually challenged from the 19th century onwards.”

Apart from Abhishek, former sportsmen Sunil Gavaskar, Geet Sethi and Vijay Amritraj, Sabeer Bhatia, film director Rohan Sippy and Rahul Gandhi are expected to share their viewpoint.
