Bollywood star and India’s first Miss Universe Sushmita Sen is all set to add glamour to Leicester when she comes to support diabetes charity Silver Star.
The 36-year-old actress has been invited by the charity’s founder and member of Parliament Keith Vaz, who was diagnosed with diabetes five years ago. In a whirlwind visit, Sen will launch Vaz’s anniversary appeal for Silver Star, which will mark 25 years for Vaz as MP of Leicester East. The appeal is designed to raise funds for further mobile diabetes testing units in Mumbai and the Midlands.
So far, Silver Star units have tested 25,000 people in schools, businesses and villages for free, and have consequently caught the disease early in many communities.
Sen’s visit will culminate in the hotly-anticipated launch of Silver Star’s raffle prize, a new Kia Picanto at the Sandicliff Kia’s Red Cube dealership in Leicester.
Has Sush given up acting for good?
