New Delhi: A starry fundraising auction will offer a chance to fly with superstar Shah Rukh Khan on his private jet, win a dinner date with heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor and spend an entire day with Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra.

"I am very excited as well as nervous to be organising a fundraiser of this magnitude. We have a perfect blend of films, fashion and art at the auction table. It is an interesting mix of things. And I would call them 'Money Can't

Buy' experiences," Zarina told PTI.

The auction list also includes invitation for dinner at Kiran Rao & Aamir Khan's home, a retreat in Jaipur for two, hosted by the Royal Family, invite for the Pucci Fashion Show as their VIP guest in Milano, holiday in Champagne (France)

and an opportunity to get a portrait done by Jaideep Mehrotra.

"The who's who from the world of films, fashion, business are set to attend the event. We have made special efforts and promise it is going to be a unique experience," Zarina added.

There will also be unique fashion show with leading personalities from Bollywood who will walk the ramp along with villagers of Raigadh, where Swades works.

Celebrities like Sonakshi Sinha, Bipashsa Basu, Neha Dhupia, Dia Mirza, Malaika Arora Khan, Shiamak Davar, Leander Paes, Ayan Mukherjee among others will walk the ramp wearing designer Vikram Phadnis' creations.
