Shabana Azmi and Manish Malhotra headlined an event to promote the inaugural Indian Academy Awards Women Achievers Award in New Jersey. The event honoured 15 women, selected through a process audited by Ernst and Young, along with a fashion show and fundraiser for Azmi’s NGO Mijwan Welfare Society. “True progress of a society is not through its GDP but its human development index. Women empowerment should be a given in any civilised society.”
