Interestingly, Pednekar is the first Indian film actor who has been invited to attend the 54th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum, set to be held in January 2025 in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland. "It will be an honour to represent my country with the hope that I can have enough impact to bring about large-scale change. [Over a three-day induction event this month], we discussed climate change, gender equality, and the means to [build] an organisation as an entrepreneur. Being in the company of people from diverse cultures, backgrounds and experiences, who have impacted lives with their passion, felt good. I am excited about my journey because I will be in the company of high achievers."

The prestigious event is attended by over 3,000 leaders belonging to governments, businesses and civil societies." The Annual Meeting 2025 is expected to address global and regional challenges, including analysing responses to geopolitical shocks, and improve living standards.
