Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone to reunite for a noble cause

Feature

April 9th, 2018 will mark the 9th anniversary of Manish Malhotra with Shabana Azmi led NGO Mijwan Welfare Society. And of course, this calls for a celebration. The welfare society funds education and welfare of people of Mijwan, the ancestral village of legendary poet Kaifi Azmi.


The NGO was founded by her late father


Announcing the good news, Manish took to his official Twitter account and posted a collage of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, and wrote, "#TheWalk of Mijwan #FashionShow...... 9 years of mijwan ... the journey ... #Muses...... the #fabulous #dapper #Charming #RanbirKapoor with the very #beautiful #stunning @deepikapadukone ... together for @mwsyouth @mmalhotraworld #mijwan #chikankari #womenempowerment @azmishabana18 @mantagoyal #manishmalhotraworld.”


Also, PVR has collaborated with the NGO and will soon screen a 60-second-long video which narrates the inspiring story about Mijwan before the national anthem is played, a press release issued said. Manish has also collaborated with Azmi to provide work to the Mijwan artisans.


“My father believed that India’s remarkable economic progress can only be meaningful if it reaches rural India, where 80 per cent of the population lives, but is denied access to opportunity. His prophetic words have become my mantra in the work that I do with the weak and the dispossessed. When Kaifi saheb embarked on the journey alone, Mijwan (a village in Uttar Pradesh) did not even figure on the map of India. Today, Mijwan is known all over the world,” Azmi said in a statement.


Some of the most prominent faces of Bollywood including Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan have walked the ramp to support the cause of Mijwan in the past.
