Ever since the Saifai event has begun there has been a lot of controversy surrounding it with a lot of protests raised by the people of UP as to how the government was spending so much money on the show when the state is not well off financially and all of that. And Salman Khan who is one of the participants has defended himself saying that at the show they have made a lot of donations and most of their fee from the Saifai for charity. On Alia Bhatt’s performance at the event, Mahesh Bhatt too wasn’t happy and tweeted about how he did not teach Alia to be responsible and all of that.
And immediately, Salman came to Alia Bhatt’s rescue by tweeting on how she did a good job and how he was proud to share the stage with her. Here’s how the tweet went, “Bhatt saab no need for apology, alia’s upbringing is gr8, was proud to share the stage vit her. Earns her living vit hardwork n dignity.”
Slaman issued a statement in which he supported how the event was beneficial for the people of the state. The statement goes like this,
“Whenever I visit a place for a performance or a promotion, I see it as an opportunity to help the locals in the areas of healthcare or education. In Nagpur, on Sunday, Being Human pledged to fund 100 paediatric cardiac cases in Maharashtra State. And in Etawah, Being Human, on behalf of all artists who performed yesterday, has committed to fund 200 paediatric heart surgeries in UP (there is already a wait list of 81 children we have received who are being moved to Fortis Hospital Gurgaon and their surgeries will get done by month end and Being Human is in touch with local NGOs and hospitals for their lists also). We have also contributed Rs 25 lakh to the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College & Hospital for the purchase of an Echo Machine, Pediatric & neo natal ventilator and a portable X-ray machine for their paediatric cardiac ICU.”
