Actor Celina Jaitly is over the moon, as she will soon make her Broadway debut with 16-time Grammy-winning musician, Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner — better known as Sting. “I am thrilled and exhilarated,” says the 32-year-old.

Besides singing with the 62-year-old veteran of The Police fame, she will join Grammy-winner Patti LuPone at a special UN benefit concert for equality at a Broadway theatre in New York City on  September 15. Jaitly, an active LGBT rights supporter and UN goodwill ambassador, will perform a special Bollywood-theme soundtrack that was created for UN’s anti-homophobia campaign.
