BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: It is common knowledge that Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has a heart of gold. Now he has done something that only strengthens that knowledge. According to Federation of Western Indian Cine Employees (FWICE), the Dabangg actor has pledged to take care of 25,000 daily wage workers from the film industry financially.
He’ll be doing this through his charitable organisation Being Human Foundation. FWICE president B N Tiwari said to PTI, “Salman’s Being Human Foundation has come forward to help daily wage workers. They called us three days ago. We have about 5 lakh workers out of which 25,000 are in dire need of financial help. Being Human Foundation said they will take care of these workers on their own. They have asked for account details of these 25,000 workers as they want to ensure that money reaches them directly.”
Salman is joining a long list of actors who are being generous and donating money to fight the coronavirus crisis. The list includes Akshay Kumar who donated a whooping Rs. 25 crore, Varun Dhawan and several South film industry superstars who have put in sums ranging from several lakhs to crores.
