The hotel heiress and socialite prayed at the temple and later gave Christmas gifts to orphans. She also danced to Shahrukh Khan’s song Chammak challo with the kids

Socialite Paris Hilton became Santa Claus for children at an orphanage in Mumbai on Monday and even grooved to the popular song Chammak challo with them.

Hilton, who is on her 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. I admire the work done here. It makes me so happy,” Hilton said at the event.

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. Her prime motive for this trip was her performance at the recently concluded India Resort Fashion Week in Goa as a DJ. 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,” said Cherie Pereira, senior project officer, CCDT. The orphanage houses a total of 108 children in its various centres in and around Mumbai, and Ashray, its Bandra branch, has 30 children.

Hilton also visited Mumbai’s famous Siddhivinayak temple. “Went to the Siddhivinayak temple for a blessing. Amazing to be in such a spiritual and special place. Blessed,” she tweeted. CLICK FOR MORE PICS BELOW
