Bollywood super star Salman Khan is a human being with a charitable instinct is no unspoken truth. But what he recently did for a small village in Karjat tells a lot about the humanitarian spirit he has. Salman Khan and his ‘being human’ traits know no boundaries.
Salman, who is shooting in Karjat, recently led the entire unit on Bajrangi Bhaijaan to paint the houses of Hatluni village. Along with the cast and crew of the film Kareena Kapoor, director Kabir Khan, and composer Himesh Reshammiya, Salman headed to village Hatluni to paint the houses and distribute sarees to village women. Salman and the cast and crew of the film were also accompanied by a few professional painters.
Talking about it, Kabir Khan said, “There were about 30 of us, and led by Salman, we painted the entire village in one five-hour stretch. The results are fantastic.”
89-year-old Lakshmi Devi, one of the residents of the village said, “The security guards surrounding Salman Baba were not letting me meet him. But then he saw me standing there with my pooja thali and told his guards to move aside. He responded by putting an arm around me and saying, `Changli diste, bai’.”
A child from the village named Kishore said, “We played football with him till midnight. I’ve sat in his lap, held his hand and dragged him to play with me. He never says no to me.”
The villagers have only one complaint against the star.”Salman doesn’t speak Marathi too well, so I don’t think he understands everything I tell him,” said Lakshmi Devi. But her daughterin-law does not agree entirely. “He always asks us how we are doing and his Marathi has definitely improved over time,” she said.
