Celebrating the Joy of Giving Week, leading Chennai hotels are hosting a charity event, Battle of Buffet, on Sunday where clothes donated by celebrities like Rekha and Rajinikanth will be auctioned. The Battle of Buffet will be organised by Oriental Cuisines and Centre for Social Initiatives and Management (CSIM) at the Chennai Trade Centre in Nandambakkam on Sunday (October 9). The clothes that will be put on auction include a T-shirt signed and donated by actor Rajinikanth, saris donated by B-town actors Rekha and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, along with those from the wardrobe of other south Indian stars like Trisha and Suhasini Maniratnam.
