Salman Khan though may have been upset with the response his recent movie has got, that didn’t stop him from thanking his crew of Jai Ho. Salman Khan sent all of them a very special gift, he gave them all cheques of a lakh each from his personal account. The entire amount came to about Rs 2 crore.
Says a source, “Though Jai Ho didn’t do as well as expected, Salman and Sohail were very happy with the work done by the cast and crew. It was Salman who thought of the idea of giving something to each and every member of the crew as a gesture of appreciation. Every person associated with the film was called to their office and handed the cheque. From the lightmen to the spot boys, no one was left out. No matter how small his contribution to the film. It was a small token but it put a smile on everybody’s face. Salman and his family is known to do charity. The actor always tells whoever he meets to do charity and do it directly, as he himself contributes to various social activities. The Khan brothers have learned the art of giving from home as their father, writer Salim Khan, has been associated with charitable causes for many years.”
Senior Khan says, “Yes Salman and Sohail have given the entire cast and crew cheques of Rs 1 lakh each. They are happy with their work. Sab ko dena chahiye. If they work for you and you don’t share your money with them, that’s unfair. But it is not something to be advertised nor is it done for publicity. There’s a different joy in giving. That’s it.”
Meanwhile, Looks like the channel that airs Bigg Boss, doesn’t want to keep any association with the Dabangg Khan anymore. A source revealed, “The tentative title of the show is Paanch Ka Punch and it is a fun show that promises a lot of entertainment along with a strong social message. Having liked the concept, Salman has already given it his nod. Accordingly, Siddharth Basu’s production house first approached the said channel. But they have now turned it down as they felt that Salman hosting another show on their channel would amount to an overdose for their audiences,”
