Incidentally, Sridevi had been painting for many years. It was said to be her favourite pastime. In 2010, an international art house approached her to auction her work. But she didn’t agree. Since the Dubai event was for a noble cause, Sridevi had agreed to auction her paintings this time.

As for Sonam, she has a massive fan following in Dubai and her popularity has grown in the Middle East after her Project Runway outing with Elie Saab.
