Superstar Bachchan cancels Maldives trip

Goodwill Ambassador of World Health Organization (WHO) and acting legend Amithabh Bachchan has cancelled his planned trip to Maldives to attend the 70th South East Asia conference hosted by WHO.

The B-Town superstar was slated to arrive in Maldives around the early hours on Thursday. However the Sarkar actor confirmed he won't be attending the WHO-led conference due to health conditions.

Bachchan was scheduled to deliver his speech regarding Hepatitis - which he has actively countered through social media and television snippets - at the WHO conference which kicked off on Wednesday at Paradise Island Resort.

At the time when news of Bachchan's imminent visit to Maldives became public several lawmakers representing the opposition took to Twitter to launch a campaign calling out to the actor to cancel his visit.

South Galolhu constituency lawmaker Ahmed Mahloof tweeted stating the leaders of opposition are locked behind bars while civil rights towards citizens under Maldivian Constitution has been stripped considerably.

The B-Town superstar had previously visited Maldives twice.
