“I would like to thank the people of India for their brave and conscientious work in the fight again HIV/AIDS and for allowing AmFAR the privilege of joining them in this important global effort,” Stone said in a statement. “We are grateful and humbled to be welcomed by the Indian community and to share in the wealth of knowledge provided by the Indian people and its government.”
Bachchan and Rai Bachchan are the Indian co-chairs. Billionaire tycoons such as Rocky Malhotra and Cyrus Poonawallah have also added their weight in the hopes of making it an annual event.
