Talking about Highstreet Market Via Moda, and her involvement in the social cause, Lopamudra said, “After winning the crown of Mrs India IAB 2018 First Runner Up, it fell within my responsibility to support social causes and I am eternally grateful to all my patrons who have consistently been supporting my endeavors. But today it gives me immense pleasure to proudly say that I am in a position to involve more and more people and spread the cause of a better world, as I put in my humble efforts to make a difference in the lives of the many underprivileged women and children of the city. That is my biggest satisfaction.”
