The campaign has earned the support of a few celebrities, some of whom are likely to participate in the walk. "Nafisa Ali and Gul Panag will be there and designers Sanjana Jon and Niket Mishra may also attend," said Mishika Singh, an organizer.

Organizers say they expect quite a crowd as flyers have been distributed during street plays and weekly debates t o promote the campaign as it unfolded across the world. In the days leading up to the walk, they also flooded Delhi University with campaign posters, and with a team of about 25 volunteers distributed flyers in North Campus.

"We had performed plays in South Campus and had distributed flyers, then we focused on North Campus before the walk," said Diksha Dumra, the organizer and public coordinator of the campaign in the city.
