Post Akshay Kumar’s contribution of 25 Crores, Twitterati has been asking from the ‘Khan’ clan i.e. Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan about why they’re silent. They’re demanding the Khans come forward and help the government fight Coronavirus.
One user said, “Where are the Khans?
Where is Virat Kohli? These people earn in crores and still no donations. Can anyone explain #सलमान_शाहरुख_आमिर_दान_करो.” While another wrote, “How much have the Khan trio given?”
Dabangg 3‘s co-producer and Salman Khan’s close friend Nikhil Dwivedi quoted one of such tweets and said, “Salman Khan’s BeingHuman foundation works round the year. Once, I myself was sceptical of it. In recent years I had the opportunity of observing it closely& was pleasantly shocked at the kind of monies it spent. It’s a sincere charity. SRK spends substantially too. So does Mr Bachchan.”
Salman Khan has decided to extend help to 25,000-odd daily wage workers of the film industry whose lives have been affected by the ongoing national lockdown that has brought all filming activity in Bollywood to a grinding halt.
Salman’s contribution will aid the artistes of Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), said the body’s president BN Tiwari.
“After we approached Salman Khan, he asked us to give him a count of the most affected workers from our association and we told him there were 25,000 such artistes. He has decided to contribute to them. We will be sending him the list in the evening,” said Tiwari, according to a report in indianexpress.com.
