“It’s an honour to be a part of the esteemed amfAR gala. I cannot stress enough the importance of AIDS research in our time. This foundation is doing such incredible work dedicated towards raising funds for life-saving research programs that help the fight against AIDS,” Sonam said in a statement.
Sonam is expected to rub shoulders with the crème de la crème of fashion and world cinema. The names include the likes of Helen Mirren, Sharon Stone, Katy Perry, Kenneth Cole, Lewis Hamilton, Isabeli Fontana, Barbara Palvin and Irina Shayk.
The star of films like “Neerja” and "Khoobsurat", has been personally invited to attend the coveted gala this year. On the other hand, actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who is a regular at the event, will be skipping the gala due to commitments towards her forthcoming film “Sarbjit”.
