Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who is well known for his charitable nature and his frequent work towards humanity, has once again made his prominence in this regard.
According to sources close to the actor, Salman donated a sum of Rs.5 lakhs to co-actor Santosh Shukla’s 34-year-old brother Ashutosh, who underwent a kidney transplant operation in Delhi last week.
“Bhai got to know about my dilemma during the shoot from someone. He spoke to me and asked me to focus on my work. Without me requesting him, he offered to donate 5 lakhs for my brother’s operation. He called up my mother to check on her. He also appreciated my bhabhi for her brave gesture of donating her kidney to her husband (my brother). The operation went well. Ashutosh has not been discharged as yet but after he gets better, I would want him to meet Salman bhai. We can’t thank him enough,” Mr. Santosh told reporters.
Salman Khan recently delivered his political action film Jai Ho, that also features Tabu, and newcomer Daisy Shah.
