On another occasion, Lee also launched his pro-socio campaign titled ‘Spread the Music' to help underprivileged children to learn music.
Speaking about his music campaign Lee says, “I see so many children inclined towards learning music in India but unfortunately they do not have the infrastructure. My entire campaign focuses on giving these underprivileged children a chance to learn music. I want every kid to learn music and I am just going to try and provide them with that opportunity and the required instruments.”
The cricketer added that he has not approached any personality from Bollywood to help his cause even though it would be beneficiary. Lee does have good friends in the industry. He said, “I have been fortunate enough to be friends with actor Shah Rukh Khan and his close friends and of course Preity Zinta has been a good friend all throughout but I don't want to divert from the cause. This is about music and my initiative and I want to do it entirely my way.”
With his immense love for music, he said that he is looking forward to bring it to India along with his own band.
Speaking about Bollywood music, he said, “I love Bollywood and entire Indian culture. I share a special connect with this place that makes India so special for me. Though I listen to Bollywood songs when I am here, I do not know the names, but I really enjoy the tune. May be sometime in the near future I may think about it, but right now my priority is my campaign.”
Lee who has been to India for a few matches and also for personal reasons said that the bond he shares with the country is a special one giving him sufficient reasons to keep coming back.
