Salman Khan and Sukhwinder raises a toast to 175 years of TOI!

The Times of India celebrated 175 years at Bandra Fort and was full of high energy musical evening featuring singer Sukhwinder Singh. And when superstar Salman Khan walked on to the stage, it was a moment of madness surely worth capturing.

Holding up three fingers, Salman urged his fans and the crowd to each help atleast three people, carrying forward the message shared by him in Jai Ho.

While an emotional Sukhi shared anecdotes through the evening, he also spoke of how the city shaped who most stars are, “The passion and pain of getting here is something Salman too has gone through and you should appreciate it.” The singer also revealed that his association with Salman began with Tere Naam, he said the star has been fond of him ever since.

Both of them shared a warm hug when Salman made his way onto the stage amid the crowd which was going berserk chanting Salman’s name. Giving in to their demand for a performance, he joked, “I just came to talk to you guys, you got me to perform as well.” Sukhi said, “Salman at this show is my first gift, the second I want is for you to sing Chak De India along with me.” And they did.

Meanwhile, Salman Khan’s Being Human Foundation has joined hands with a news channel to launch Veer, a two-month-long media campaign showcasing case examples of Persons with Disabilities (PwD), who have succeeded in their endeavours on the strength of their self-belief.

“Together with Thums Up, Being Human has launched Veer, a campaign that recognises the potential of differently abled individuals and provides them with a level playing field,” Salman, who starred in a 2010 film of the same name as the campaign, said in a statement.
