Well known artists like Uddhav Thackeray, Priya Dutt, Rajiv Menon, Ajay De, Brinda Miller, Sudharak Olwe and city-based artist Suvigya Sharma were among the few.
Sharma was bowled over by Dutt’s humble approach. “He is so grounded and humble that it was an experience of a life lifetime to communicate with him. The moment Manyata Dutt saw the Ganesha painting; she expressed her ecstasy and husband Dutt decided to take It.” In fact, Manyata said at the do, “Suvigya’s paintings have a great appeal. The Ganesha painting became my instant love as soon as I saw it.”
Expressing his ecstasy Sharma said, “I am feeling extremely elated. It was already a matter to rejoice that I could showcase my work on such bigger platform; to add to it the exhibition was for a noble cause. The cherry on the cake was that none other than legendary actor Sanjay Dutt himself purchased my art work.”  
The sale proceeds of the exhibition will go to the foundation. “It is a matter of pride that our Rajasthan art was so much appreciated at one of the prestigious art exhibition. Through the sale of the art works, the trust will be enabled to continue work in cancer care as well as upliftment of rural India,” said Sharma.
