Coronavirus lockdown has affected the lives of many including daily wage workers in Bollywood. To help them, Bollywood has stepped up and among them, Salman Khan’s name has been coming forth recently. After reports of Salman asking for bank details of 25000 daily wage workers came out, fans of the actor were filled with pride due to his action. Several times in the past, the Khan family has helped the nation in times of need. And this time too, they stepped up like others from the industry. 

In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Salman’s father and senior writer, Salim Khan opened up about how his family ensured that they take care of Salman Khan Films’ employees and their home staff. On his son, Salman’s gesture of helping 25000 daily wagers, Salim Khan didn’t comment but spoke about his family’s principle that wherever they contribute family’s money, it should be of help to those who need it. Salman’s dad even spoke about how they have been arranging meals for everyone in their building including the actor’s security guards. 

Salman’s father, Salim Khan said, “I don’t want to comment on it (Salman’s contribution to 25000 workers) as I don’t know much about it. But our family has a principle- Hamara paise jahan jaaye, waha dikhna chahiye aur kisi ke kaam aana chahiye. We have been arranging meals for our building and Salman’s security guards. We must all look after our staff.” Salman and his brothers Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan run a production house, Salman Khan Films. As per the report, a source revealed that post suspension of shoots in mid of March, the studio gave the month’s salary to employees.

The FWICE chairperson also mentioned that every month Salman also contributes Rs 5 Lakhs, to take care of their medical expenses. 

In the time of need, Salman and his family are also stepping up like before.

Several stars like Akshay Kumar, Varun Dhawan, Karan Johar, Bhushan Kumar and more have pledged their contributions to the PM Cares Fund. Salman, on the other hand, will be taking care of daily wagers.

Upper wale se duaa kare kare hum viniti,... Uddar karo bachalo puri sristy,... Har gaon shahar khtare main padi hai basti,.. De do dava koi toot jaye corona ke rassi

Islam has mercy for the needy....may Allah bless the poor and bless Salman n family

I never liked Salman as an actor, but i have always liked him as a person. He has a good heart. A little troubled, but a good heart. I hope that all the poor people, the daily workers and labourers...have as caring people around them. It is not just Salmans responsibility. It is everyones responsibility to look after those around them . Do your part guys!. Love from Pakistan.

I always liked his movies and liked him as a person and go please watch his old movies like hum aapke hai kaun, maine pyaar kiya , salman was amazing, Karan Arjun etc etc he was sueperb in Sultan and Tiger Znda hai, Ek tha Tiger, etcetc

He can afford to change all his staffs life but he won’t.
