Coming back to his doctorate degree, while talking about the attacks on the Indian students, Bachchan asserted that it was not good indeed, however, we should forget it now, as things have changed.
“It’s been a very warm welcome. I’ve only been seeing smiling faces and experiencing great hospitality. That was something that was an aberration and it’s over now.” He added.
In the meanwhile, the star actor also encouraged the Indian student to consider Australia to pursue their higher education.
“Education helps us to strengthen and fortify convictions not to be swayed by preoccupation of cast and creed, race and religion. I do believe large numbers of Indian students seek education in Australia and I hope that continues to grow.” Bachchan continued.
