Actor Salman Khan is working towards ‘Being Human’. For the next three months, the actor is neck-deep in a spate of activities for the promotion of his charity, Being Human Salman Khan Foundation, which includes everything from launching timepieces to doing a show at the HDIL Couture Fashion Week in Mumbai this October.
The actor, who is known for bestowing gifts on fellow colleagues, was in the news recently for giving a high-tech cycling bike to child actor Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail who featured in Slumdog Millionaire. Therefore, it came as no surprise when the actor decided to launch his charity.
Khan has already launched Being Human gold coins and is now working towards wristwatches for the same. He says, “You have already seen some Being Human apparels. Now, get ready for timepieces as well.”
Khan adds that some of the Being Human apparel he has been spotted in has been designed by Mumbai-based designer Kunal Rawal. Rawal, along with Aki Narula, is also designing for the Being Human show at the upcoming HDIL India Couture Week. Though Khan refuses to divulge much, he adds that in the next two months, Being Human will also set shop in Mumbai. There might be an online store in the offing too.
“We have so much that we must be able to share it,” says Khan, summing up his commitment to philanthropy. And just as we wrap up the interview, a little girl asks him for his autograph, to which Khan says, “See sweetheart, even this is being human.”
