The people in the village have been living in dark all these years, thanks to Alia for installing solar lamps in these dilapidated huts to bring light into their lives.
"Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe" is an initiative started by the actress under which she sells handpicked designer clothes and the proceed goes in financing the solar lamps for the poor people. The actress has roped in a local NGO in Bengaluru which is implementing the project on her behalf.

Those whose huts have seen light were indebted to the actress and want her to visit them once to see how their lives have been changed because of her kindness and thoughtfulness.
For the villagers, Alia is the "light of their lives" and truly so because when the authorities never heard their repeated pleas to electrify the village, it took Alia to change their lives.
This is what real star power is all about and Alia is a true role model.
