After New York, I went to Toronto and attended the Toronto Film Festival. Straight after attending an event there, I quickly rushed back to Beijing. But my schedule was so busy. I only spent less than half a day in Beijing and then I had to catch a six hour flight to New Delhi, India. By the time I arrived in India, it was already past 2:00am.
This time I was in India to attend the Chinese Film Festival. The last time I was here, I think was almost 10 years ago when I filmed The Myth. Unfortunately, because my schedule is so tight, I only stayed in India for one and a half days. I honestly have to say, the enthusiasm of my fans here is great! Apart from doing interviews with the media, organizers here suggested that I sing Country during the event. At that moment in time, I thought to myself, does the Indian audience understand what I sing? After singing the song, I truly believe that music has no borders because everyone in the audience clapped to the beat of the music.
After attending the official event, I made most of the time I had in India and visited a local charitable organization that specializes in helping women and children. I saw so many innocent faces and they all performed for me, dancing and singing songs. I kept asking my friends, how can I help them? I want to do my best to help these people.
At 3:00am, I had to board the plane again and take a 6 hour flight back to Beijing.
