Salman Khan’s 25K gift to beggar
Actor Salman Khan may be a brat, but the brat has a heart of gold, and this, we must say is proven time and time again. The actor while shooting for Boney Kapoor’s ‘Wanted’ at Bandra Fort seemed to recognize a beggar on the street. He went up to him, and asked him if he was the same person who used to sell kites at Band Stand, Bandra a long time ago. The beggar indeed was!
“Apparently, Salman Khan used to buy kites from him as a child. He hadn’t seen him for years, and now suddenly after 20 years to have spotted him in this state...,” says the source, adding, “But Salman is a very generous guy. He gave him Rs. 25,000 and bought him some food and clothes. The beggar was eternally grateful.” Salman Khan has grown up at Bandra’s Band Stand. And flying kites on the rocks wasn’t unusual for him.
The actor has always done his bit for the underprivileged. He runs his own NGO, Salman Khan Foundation, and the proceeds of all his paintings go towards social causes. “Salman Khan does a lot for children, slum children, orphans and the handicapped, but he’s the kind of guy who doesn’t like to speak about these things. He quietly does his bit for society, but unfortunately, he’s reprimanded more as the ‘Bad boy of Bollywood’ than applauded as Mr. Nice Guy!” shrugs the unit member.
