Actress Sharon Stone on Sunday hosted the American Foundation for AIDS Research's (amfAR) first ever gala in India.

Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank and Bollywood actors Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan were among the celebrities seen on the red carpet.

The event featured a cocktail reception, dinner and live auction.

The fundraiser held at the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai concluded with a special performance by international pop sensation Ke$ha.

Before the party got underway, Stone, amfAR's global fundraising chairman, tweeted a picture to her nearly 4,500 followers of the hotel's ballroom as staffers prepared the room.

“Looking down from my room to the prep for tonight's @amfAR India. Wish me luck,” she messaged.
