Besides talent, support from a soulmate is a much needed catalyst to succeed in life — stressing on this thought, Soulmates Foundation, an organisation which helps the underprivileged, is hosting Soulmates Award function on Friday. Nine celebrity soulmates — be it family or friends — will be awarded at the second edition of the Award, which will see a host of stars.

This year, the event has expanded, including a lot more celebrities attending and contributing to it. The red carpet is ready to be rolled out for stars like businessman Abirami Ramanathan and his wife Nallammai Ramanathan, playback singer Unnikrishnan and his daughter Uthara Unnikrishnan, renowned dancer Dhananjayan and his wife, actor Bobby Simha, actress Rai Lakshmi, actor Srikanth and his wife Vandana and actor and director Lakshmi Ramakrishnan among others, says Sumathi Srinivas, CEO of Twilitecreations and founder of Soulmates Foundation.

“It is probably the first of its kind in the country — soulmates being awarded. They can be anyone — friends, husband and wife, siblings — those who supported each other to come up in their lives,” says Sumathi. “Today, the feeling of jealousy is high among kith and kin. We want to show good examples of soulmates. And we chose celebrities because this is where rivalry, hardwork and friendship get exposed to the world in a flash. It is only with the help of a soulmate that they can survive all of it and can come up,” she adds.

The event will include a dance performance by physically challenged kids besides video clippings showing how a soulmate supported the other. “It is going to be an entertaining night with a message that Souls unite pillars of tomorrow,” she says. “The event will help spread word about the good deeds we do, and encourage people to step forward,” she adds.

Soulmates Foundation works towards upliftment of women and supports the education of around 60 children in rural areas. “We want to provide grassroots level education. It is not just for one academic year, there are students who have been able to continue education for years because of our support. Every year, more students are added,” she says.

The event will be held at Kamaraj Auditorium at 6.30 pm on July 10. For details, call 9884331103.
