MUMBAI: Being Human is Salman Khan's brainchild. The actor, known to many, as having a heart of gold has been using his charitable organization to help the needy. And now he will be taking the step to expand his brand to a bigger business proposal.
Salman explains to Businessofcinema.com, "Being Human raises funds via the sale of its T-shirts, which are exclusively designed. After T-shirts, Being Human will now be expanding its product offerings by making watches. Watches are a great accessory and both genders love flaunting their watches. It has become a style statement. So keeping that in mind, my foundation will be making watches, which can be sold to make some money."
Salman's exploits to help anyone that comes to him, is legendary. He is one person who does not hesitate to give the shirt off his back should the occasion arise. His mother Salma Khan adds, "I have started screening all the requests that come for help. We have been conned in the past as Salman is so quick to help to everybody. Once I see that the person is genuine, we go all out to bear the expenses."
Not one to talk about his exploits, we ferreted the information that recently Salman gifted a handicapped girl with a laptop when she requested for one as it will help augment her livelihood.
Salman had expected a lot of his friends to contribute money for his Salman Khan Foundation. But the actor said, "I was disappointed. No one likes to part with their cash. So I have thought of a different way to procure funds."
Salman's Being Human T-shirts are much in demand. The actor always wears the brand in public or for his shows like Dus Ka Dum to promote it. And now that he has planned to sell watches via his brand, one can expect a lot of his celebrity friends queuing up to help promote his cause.
