Always wanted to experience Indian culture, history: Arnold Schwarzenegger
Hollywood action star Arnold Schwarzenegger always wanted to experience the culture and heritage of India and says he is feeling great to be in the country and that he delayed the shoot of "Last Stand" to be here.
"I always wanted to visit India and experience the rich culture, beauty and the history of India. I am shooting for my film 'Last stand' since October, but I had to delay the shoot because I was supposed to come here (India).
It feels nice to be in India," the 64-year-old said Thursday while attending the 12th Delhi Sustainable Development Summit.
The former governor of California is in the capital to attend the summit that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh inaugurated.
Schwarzenegger will also present Abhishek Bachchan the Green Globe for Outstanding Efforts by a Celebrity award for his contribution towards creating a greener environment at the Green Globe Foundation Awards Ceremony.
The awards have been instituted as a salutation to the efforts of organisations and individuals fighting climate change through their work in environment preservation and regeneration.
When asked how strict is he about saving energy back home, the "Terminator" star said: "I always ask my kids to turn off the lights whenever they are out of their rooms. And I tell them if they forget, I would take out the entire switch board."
