Kesha to perform at Mumbai fundraiser

Boasting the Bollywood star-power of screen couple Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, AmFAR will host its first ever fundraiser in Mumbai, India, next month.

The Foundation for AIDS Research has previously held the benefits such as Cinema Against AIDS in Cannes and Dubai, and other galas in Milan, Toronto, Sao Paulo, New York,  Vienna and Paris among other cities.

The Nov. 17 AmFAR India gala at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel will be attended not only by global chair Sharon Stone, but also Kenneth Cole and Ke$ha, who will perform.

“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,” Stone said in a statement. “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.”

Bachchan and Rai Bachchan are the Indian co-chairs.  Billionaire tycoons such as Rocky Malhotra and Cyrus Poonawallah have also added their weight in the hopes of making it an annual event.
