The Student Of The Year star Siddharth Malhotra is one of the five male superstars who have been confirmed to walk the ramp at Shabana Azmi’s annual fashion fundraiser.
Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Farhan Akhtar, Ranbir Kapoor are the other 4 super stars who will grace the ramp in Manish Malhotra’s ensembles. The proceeds from the show will go to Mijwan Welfare Society (MWS), an NGO founded by the actress’ poet father Kaifi Azmi.
Named after the hamlet in Uttar Pradesh where Kaifi was born, the organisation focuses on empowering rural women. The first fundraiser in 2011 saw Manish crafting ensembles out of fabric embroidered by the women of the village.
“When we started we had a single embroidery centre in Mijwan. Today we have 10 centres across UP and counting,” says Shabana.
“I am indebted to these stars for their support. If we are able to rope in a few more names, we plan to make it an all-men show,” she added.
