Mumbai, April 4 -- Every year, several stars hit the ramp at a fashion show organised by Shabana Azmi's NGO. Recently, Sonakshi Sinha confirmed that she would participate this year, along with her father, Shatrughan Sinha.
The duo joined a list of confirmations, which includes actor-parent pairs like Abhishek and Jaya Bachchan, Farhan and Javed Akhtar, and Sonam and Anil Kapoor. The latest addition to the roster is Alia Bhatt, who will walk the ramp with mother, Soni Razdan. Richa Chadda will compere the event.
The NGO was founded in the memory of Shabana's father, late poet Kaifi Azmi, and works for the benefit of the people of his birthplace, Mijwan, a village in Uttar Pradesh. This year's theme for the fashion show - which will feature outfits by Manish Malhotra for the fourth year in a row - is empowerment of the girl child.
When contacted, Namrata Goyal, youth president of the NGO, Mizwan Welfare Society, says, "We are humbled that Soni Razdan and Alia are part of the initiative. We are very thankful to the industry members who have agreed to support us by walking the ramp. We are happy that they will be part of Kaifi Saab's legacy and are helping us take it forward."
