Ajay Devgan, who is presently shooting for Vipul Shah's London Dreams on location, was invited to an annual charity gala dinner co-hosted by Mrs Cherie Blair (Britain's ex-PM, Tony Blair's wife) and the Loomba trust. The UK India Business Council hosts the prestigious event every year.
The event took place last night at the Banqueting House, Whitehall and was attended by over 300 guests from both the British and Indian communities in London. London's mayor Boris Johnson was guest of honour. Also present was the Indian High Commissioner."
Ajay Devgan was busy shooting but made it a point to attend, "Ajay specially requested producer-director Vipul Shah to grant him an early pack-up on October 2. Ana Singh designed a formal black suit for the evening." Speaking from London, the actor says, "By attending the gala dinner, I will mark my support towards humanity and non-violence. Though Kajol too has been invited, I don't think she will be able to make it."
The source adds, "The Loomba Trust is a charity organisation which gives practical help to widows and their children globally. Ajay has always been proud to be affiliated to causes especially which are for women, children and about society. Ajay's close friend Mandeep Kakkar is also a patron of the Loomba Trust (Cherie Blair is the President of the Trust). Mandeep has spoken about the deeds and charities which Ajay and Kajol support in India and that has impressed Cherie Blair. Hence the invitation has been extended only to the two of them."
