Sanjay Shah has had a very successful career in Finance. However, his young son Nikhil was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4 when it was observed that the baby was unable to hold down food. This resulted in an emergency trip back home to the UK from Dubai, and a visit with a child psychiatrist. The child psychiatrist diagnosed the young infant son with Autism based on his observation of the child. With this in mind, Sanjay Shah Denmark has decided to focus his philanthropic efforts on Autism Rocks, which is a charity designed to produce fun events for raising awareness toward the condition.

This festival does so by organizing concerts involving Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Michael Buble, and Drake. These concerts are held in both London and Dubai, where the atmosphere is designed to spread the word regarding the condition that so many people around the world are afflicted with. Music is the centerpiece of the festival, which also features other family-friendly events such as laser tag and face painting. These events are a hit because they’re able to draw out the biggest names in the music business to promote the cause of autism.
