Salman Khan, the actor who is known for his helping nature and a huge heart, says he does not like asking people for donations.
“Friends from the film industry do help whenever they can. But I am not good at asking money. You ask and keep asking for money and those people run away from you, and you lose friends” said the 47-year-old actor salman khan.
The Bollywood actor launched a charitable foundation named BEING HUMAN FOUNDATION in 2009, which sells clothes, merchandise on the internet and also in cities like Mumbai, Ludhiana, and Ahmedabad. According to the actor, some percent of the profit from these goods is donated to this foundation.

A huge percentage of his remuneration is also being donated to this foundation and a sizable amount from this foundation takes care of the industry people like workers and technicians.
“It is not my business to get into restaurants, clothing etc. As an actor, you only have the habit of getting things most of the times. But there is always time to give back to the society and I am doing my bit,” Salman told in an exclusive interview.
