Actor Salman Khan says he wants to help Bollywood workers by sharing his income. “I want to give a percentage of my earnings from the films I will start to workers from the industry,” says Salman, adding the amount is not fixed yet. “It can be half of the remuneration or one per cent.”

The 45-year-old actor says he will first strategise his initiative and then take action. “I have to sit with all the heads of the (film workers’) associations and find out where the maximum amount of money is required. The money would go there,” said Salman, whose Ready will hit the screens on June 3.

Salman also says that he will mix work with social work by utilising some time and money for underprivileged people while promoting a film. “I haven't started publicising the film (Ready) as yet. Whenever these 15 days come, I will make sure there are 15 to 20 places where I can go and help people under Being Human and come back,” says Salman, referring to his NGO Being Human.

The actor has planned to reserve a sum of the promotional budget to accomplish his charity work and hopes other actors will catch on.

“Instead of spending the money on promos, PRs and all that stuff, let the money go into the country,” says Salman.
