Imran Khan invites Sushmita Sen for fundraising of his cancer hospital


Former Pakistani Cricketer, Imran Khan has been garnering the support of Hollywood and bollywood stars to raise funds for his cancer hospital in Karachi. Imran Khan is actively involved in politics and social causes in Pakistan. Later in his life after Imran Khan retired from cricket, he decided to build a hospital. The hospital is named Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Center in memory of his mother who was diagnosed with cancer and later succumbed to the fatal illness. Recently Liz Hurley, Hollywood actress and good friend of Imran was in Karachi to help raise funds for his hospital. Now, Imran has invited bollywood actress Sushmita Sen to help raise funds for his cancer hospital.
The hospital is the only one in Pakistan that provides free cancer treatment to patients who are unable to pay for their expenses. Most of the patients are children. The hospital project is a much cherished dream of Imran and he continuously and tirelessly works to gather support and donations for it. Imran Khan met the beautiful bollywood actress through their common friend Parmeshwar Godrej. Sushmita Sen is extremely happy to be part of such an esteemed project and is also a keen admirer of Imran Khan’s career. The two met and from then onwards developed a friendship.

Bollywood diva Sushmita says “To be invited by Imran, especially for something that’s so close to his heart, is a great honour for me. I will always cherish it.” Sushmita Sen has supported many social causes and she has even set a personal example by adopting her little daughter, Renee. Sushmita Sen is an independent woman who believes in the causes that she takes up. The sensuous Sen says “Helping to raise funds for cancer patients is a noble cause and I’ll do whatever is within my capacity to increase cancer awareness.”

Sushmita Sen was recently seen in the film Chingari by Kalpana Lajmi where she played a prostitute, unfortunately the movie flopped at the box-office. Sen will soon be seen in Karma, Confessions and Holi, Gulel and Zindaggi Rocks.
