Mumbai, Dec 3 (IANS) Socialite Paris Hilton became Santa Claus for children at an orphanage here Monday and even grooved to popular song "Chammak challo" with them.
Hilton, who is on second visit to India, went to Ashray, a part of the Committed Communities Development Trust (CCDT) in suburban Bandra. The 31-year-old looked radiant in a colourful floral dress with a flower garland around her neck and a blingy hair band.
Hilton made it a point to bring gifts for all the children in the orphanage. She was welcomed with a traditional arti and treated to a delightful performances by the children.
"I am so happy to be here and meet you all. It is holiday time and Christmas is coming. I hoped you liked the presents," Hilton said at the event.
"I admire the work done here. It makes me so happy," she added.
When the children shook a leg to popular Bollywood dance number "Chammak challo" from the movie "RA.One", Hilton too joined them for a gig.
Hilton's prime motive for this trip was her performance at the recently concluded India Resort Fashion Week in Goa. She had a stop-over in Mumbai.
"Paris wanted to visit an orphanage while she was in Mumbai. She got in touch with someone in Bandra, who happened to know our trustee and that is why she chose our organisation," Cherie Pereira, senior project officer of CCDT, told IANS.
CCDT houses a total of 108 children in its various centres in and around Mumbai, and Ashray, its Bandra branch, has 30 children.
