In addition to the host actor Kunal Kapoor and performer Vir Das, the event was attended by film maker Anurag Kashyap, actor Kalki Koechlin and actor Nandita Das to name a few.

This fundraiser held in aid of Akshara Centre was put together by KWAN, Kunal Kapoor and The Comedy Store to support their Empowering Dreams Programme. KWAN has partnered with Akshara who specialize in education and empowerment of women. Supporting a social cause and having fun while doing it were the two key aspects of this fundraising event with a twist.

Kunal Kapoor, “I’m very happy that so many people have come together for an event where not only have we had a good time, but we’ve also been able to raise enough money that will support the education of at least 10 girls for the next year, thanks to this association with wonderful organizations like Akshara and KWAN. There should be more such opportunities where people can have fun while making a difference to someone’s life.”
