Mother Teresa should be crowned The Greatest Indian, says Salman Khan
The macho man of Bollywood, Salman Khan is all geared for his new role as the brand ambassador for History Channel. The actor believes in making history everyday; he feels that word 'history' doesnít only mean great things done in the past, but also in the present. History Channel has come up with a unique idea of acknowledging people who have done great work. In a quick chat with Dailybhaskar.com, Salman talked about his idea of charity, Being Human, Katrina Kaif and Ek Tha Tiger.
Excerpts from the interview:
Who according to you should be crowned as ĎThe Greatest Indianí, who has helped the country in a big way?
According to me, Mother Teresa was a great lady. She had done a lot for the society. And the other lady who should be appreciated for her work is Sister Philomena, the kind of work she has done is incredible and itís sad to see that people donít acknowledge it. Apart from them, there are many more people who need to be acknowledged.
Can you give us one name from Bollywood, who you think is a great Indian?
Frankly, I feel film stars and cricketers do not qualify for this award. They do it for the country's entertainment, there is no change that takes place. For me, someone who brings a difference to the country is a Great Indian.
Do you think celebrity involvement can help raise more funds for the needy?
It all depends on the kind of work a person does, if you do good work with a clean heart, it will surely work. Itís about the publicity; if people know there is a reliable person with this organisation, then he will surely get funds and help the needy.
Do you think ĎBeing Humaní has created history?
We still have lot of time to make history for 'Being Human'.
Indians are skeptical about charity and giving out money. What according to you is the reason behind it?
In India, there are many people who want to donate, but they are scared if their money will go in the right hands. They want to be sure that it will be used in the right way.
What you have to say about your upcoming film ĎEk Tha Tigerí?
'Ek Tha Tiger' is a good film. Itís an action film, filled with romance and vice-versa.

She is really good.

It has improved a lot. She is doing good, learning fast and that also makes history.
