Actor Priyanka Chopra, who has been approached by various non-profit organisations to celebrate World Autism Day on December 3, has requested them to come together and organise a combined event.

The offers came her way after the 30-year-old won accolades for playing an autistic girl Jhilmil in Anurag Basu’s Barfi!. A source close to Priyanka confirmed the news. “Yes, it’s true that she has been contacted by various NGO groups for the cause,” the source said. However, owing to her busy schedule, it is not possible for the actor to attend each event separately and thus has made the request for one big event, added the source.
