Come 17th November and our B-Town's junior Bachchan couple will play host to one of the prestigious and high-profiled charity events.

Reports have it that amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, will present amfAR INDIA, its inaugural fundraising gala in Mumbai. The event will take place at the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai, and will be hosted by amfAR's Global Fundraising Chair Sharon Stone and the India select co-chairs, amfAR supporters and Bollywood's hot stars Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan. World-renowned recording artist Kesha will travel to India to give a special performance at the event while Cyrus Poonawalla will be the event's presenting sponsor.

"I would like to thank the people of India for their brave and conscientious work in the fight again HIV/AIDS and for allowing amfAR the privilege of joining them in this important global effort," said Sharon Stone. "We are grateful and humbled to be welcomed by the Indian community and to share in the wealth of knowledge provided by the Indian people and its government."

A host of Indian celebrities, industrialists and a who's who are expected to attend to make this inaugural amfAR event an annual fixture on the socialite calendar.

While this is its first fundraising gala in India, amfAR has worked hand in hand with Indian physicians and researchers for many years through its TREAT Asia program.

Furthermore, amfAR-supported research contributed to the development of four of the six classes of drugs used to treat people living with HIV in India and around the world. And amfAR pioneered the research that ultimately led to the use of antiretroviral drugs to block mother-to-child transmission of HIV. As a result, this mode of transmission has been virtually eliminated in many parts of the world.
