Bollwood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who met former Mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg, says the gathering was a learning experience for him.

Bachchan, 72, conducted a public conversation with Bloomberg last evening, in the presence of his industrialist friend Anil Ambani and people from creative field, corporate world and media.

“The great business magnate, financial wizard, ex Mayor of NYC, philanthropist, was at an evening dinner where I was asked to conduct a conversation with him publicly. I just did and came back a short while ago, enlightened and wiser, by the million...” Bachchan wrote on his blog.

The ‘Shamitabh’ star said the event included discussions on politics, health and environment.

“There is politics to learn... There is commerce that comes your way... There is the talk of job opportunities, of health and keeping the environs clean and much much more...

“Wisdom, knowledge and opinion ruled the dinner. Hope and expectation of some worth in common fields came through and the humbling talk of my state,” he said.
