Talking about how the actress became a part of this fundraiser she expresses, “I have a friend who is part of the Pratham group. Pratham is also very well-known in India. My friend knew that it’s a cause I am quite interested in and passionate about. I think education is something every child in the world has the right to. That is how my friend got me involved in the fundraiser in London and so I am here.” Further talking about her role in the event she adds, “I wanted to make a contribution apart from just attending the event, so I decided to auction a breakfast which helped me raise 4000 pounds for the noble cause.”
