Actor Abhishek Bachchan recently inaugurated an art exhibition by painter Radhika Goenka in Mumbai.

The exhibition titled "And the Flowers Showered" was inaugurated by Bachchan on Monday at Tao Art Gallery, Worli.

Bachchan praised and encouraged the budding artist.

He said "'Shunya' is understood to be the most minimum denominator for any existence, experience or even realization. Yet, 'Shunya' is all encompassing; can perhaps embrace all the world's possibilities in any field."

"A person as young as Radhika endeavoring to journey across from 'Shunya to Bodhisattva/self-realization' in her paintings is a formidable task for anyone to reflect upon.

"Hence, instead of daring to do so, I suppose, I should just state as to how humbled I feel in having the opportunity to inaugurate her quest in spiritual creativity, through her outstanding work," he said.

Proceeds of the exhibition will go to the NGO Akanksha Foundation which helps children to be equipped with education and skills needed to lead empowered lives.

Radhika said: "The exhibition is a metaphor of my personal quest as an artist from emptiness to fulfillment to hopefully a higher realm...of artistic creativity.

"The images energized my growth...and their shapes evolved to reflect my dreams. I hope that you too find them as inspiring as I did and that they inspire you to move onwards and upwards in your personal journey."
