The British-Lebanese lawyer is one of the speakers at the India Today Conclave which will also see the attendance of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit, whose life was the subject of recent Hollywood film "The Walk".
The two-day event from March 17 will see some of the finest minds come together to discuss and debate issues from around the world.
The conclave will provide an open platform for communication among the global experts from politicians to actors, its organisers said.
"This edition of the India Today Conclave is firmly rooted in this millennium and looks ahead rather than at the past," said Conclave director Kalli Purie in a statement.
"The multi-sensory experience across two days will introduce new ways of communicating, interacting and debating. You will get an opportunity to listen to bright minds and discuss new ideas with old hands."
Nobel laureate William Henry 'Bill' Andrews, Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari, Power Minister Piyush Goyal, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will attend the discussions.
Shabana Azmi, Varun Grover, Javed Akhtar, Zoya Akhtar and Gul Panag will also speak at the event.
