Ritz Kapadia and designer C Raj confirmed in an interview to a TV channel on Sunday that they have approached the foursome – Salman Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Katrina Kaif to support the cause. Over 1500 poor and underprivileged students and street kids in Mumbai and other metros will be provided books, school uniforms and school fees and accommodation for about two years, informed Ritz Kapadia. NGO Havoc 2014 plans to provide vocational and technical training to 2000 women in India this year to enable them to earn their livelihood and become financially independent.

The movement is spearheaded by Ritz Kapadia CEO of Dream Revolution Entertainment, designer C Raj and journalist and publicist Flynn Remedios.
