Bollywood actress Sonam K. Ahuja, filmmaker-producer Karan Johar and celebrity Shweta Bachchan Nanda walked for designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla on Sunday for a fashion show by the Cancer Patients Aids Association (CPAA) to raise funds for cancer surviours.
“It is an honour and a privilege to be a part of this show. I am a huge believer in using my voice to support social and health issues. The CPAA does outstanding work in the field of providing holistic care to those affected by Cancer,” Sonam said in a statement.
The 33-year-old actress said the battle against cancer must be won. “Battling Cancer is a most worthy fight and one which can and must be won. My every good wish for them as they complete 50 years of exceptional service to the cause,” she added.
“It is an immense honour and privilege to work with CPAA for the third year in a row. Their work to empower and heal people and families affected by Cancer is unsurpassed. As they mark 50 years of committed service to the community, we are delighted to be a part of this event. Cancer is treatable and beatable. Let’s all be a part of this fight,” said the duo who chose to pay tribute to India’s textiles and embroidery legacy at their presentation for CPAA this year.
Entitled ‘INHERITANCE’ it is a spectacular expression of heritage textiles from across the country, each used as a canvas for spectacular embroideries.
Talking about walking for the designer duo, Sonam said: “I am delighted to walk for Abu and Sandeep. They are (my) favourites. It’s always a pleasure to work with them and wear their fabulous clothes.”
