He said that although he had a very busy schedule he had to come. He also thanked his Japanese fans for supporting him over the years adding in English "You for me, me for you." He said that he was happy to see that Japan was recovering from the tsunami. He wished success for the film festival and thanked the organisers for inviting him.
