Model Elizabeth Hurley took part in a global breast cancer awareness campaign. That involved lighting up the Taj Palace hotel in Mumbai on the night of Thursday, October 23.

 Liz Hurley, with a little help from her son Damien, set off the illumination of the Taj Palace as part of Estee’s Lauder’s breast cancer awareness initiative.

Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor also lent her support to the cause. India holds special memories for the model-turned-actress whose much-talked about wedding to Arun Nayar was held here last year.

Liz Hurley spoke exclusively to CNN-IBN and here’s what transpired:

“I have been coming to India since 1988 with my then boyfriend Hugh Grant. Now of course I am married to Arun, half Indian.I come to Mumbai about five times a year and love it,” said Liz.

 Speaking on the issue of her participation in the breast cancer awareness campaign, Liz said, “Every October which is a breast cancer month, we always wear pink. When they decided that they are going to light up the Taj Mahal hotel in pink, I thought Gosh, I really want to wear something fabulous and Indian. So I asked the lovely Rohit Bal who made me my ‘sangeet’ costume for my wedding, if he’d design me something specially for tonight, for the breast cancer awareness show in Mumbai. He made me this saree which I must say is absolutely stunning. I am thrilled with it.”
