Mumbai. The telecast of the well-known global festival, Global Citizen Live, has once again listed Mumbai as one of the host cities of the show. Mumbai will be part of the worldwide broadcast on 25 September and will represent India. The event will be hosted by actor Anil Kapoor. Mumbai was last part of the global list in 2016.
The show is in partnership with Wizcraft. It stars Sadhguru, Amitabh Bachchan, Ayushmann Khurrana, Arjun Kapoor, Ananya Panday, Bhumi Pednekar, Dia Mirza, Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan, Janhvi Kapoor, Kiara Advani, Riteish Deshmukh, Sara Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha.
Global Citizen Live aims to reduce carbon emissions in India and the G20 in line with preventing more than 1.5°C of global warming. It calls on the wealthiest countries to fulfill their promise of providing $100 billion annually to meet the climate needs of developing countries.
Maharashtra Tourism and Environment Minister, Aaditya Thackeray said that when it comes to climate change, we are running out of time to address the damage caused by it. I am sure that the Global Citizen Festival will drive a mass movement on the world stage.
Lisa Henshaw, COO, Global Citizen said, “We organized our first Global Citizen Festival in Mumbai five years ago. We were amazed by the response and warm welcome from hundreds of thousands of global citizens, the city of Mumbai and Maharashtra. Global citizens across India are an essential part of our movement, and we are proud to return to Mumbai for Global Citizen Live.
Andre Timmins, co-founder of Wizcraft, said, “We are thrilled and honored to be working with the Global Citizen team again. The historic moment we created with Global Citizen Festival India in November 2016 took our country to a new level of advocacy. And given an understanding of how one voice, one action can make a difference. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the team again to bring Mumbai and India to the world with this important special edition in September. Everywhere is exciting, and shows are being planned at our beautiful and iconic Gateway of India for global citizens. Still more to be announced. (IANS)
