26/11 survivor to host charity dinner in London

New Delhi, Nov 25 (Inditop.com) Deepak Kuntawala, an NRI, will probably never forget those horrific hours when Mumbai came under siege by a handful of terrorists last year. A survivor, he will host a commemorative charity dinner in London which will be attended by many film personalities, both from Bollywood and Hollywood.

Amongst those who are expected to attend the fund raiser are Prince Michael of Kent and Bollywood movie actors like Konkona Sen, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani and director Shekhar Kapoor, an official statement here said.

Kuntawala, along with his father, was staying at the Taj hotel in Mumbai on the night of Nov 26 when terrorists attacked. While he, along with 150 other guests of the hotel, managed to escape, the ordeal of the night stayed with him.

Back in London, he started an NGO, the DVK Foundation, which aims to help victims of the attack financially and in whatever other ways possible.

The commemorative dinner will be hosted at the Royal Kensington Palace, London.
