As well as being a megastar, Salman Khan is very well know for his charitable work. His charity ‘Being Human’ raises awareness for under-privileged parts in India that don’t have have sufficient healthcare and education available. Already having done so much to aid such areas, the actor has been reported to be planning to open restaurant chains and hospitals with the proceeds going towards his charity.
“We will start restaurants in metros first…We will open first in Mumbai and Pune and so on. The profits earned from them will go to the needy people living in metros. We will tie-up with someone who has the same kind of ideology… we are doing all this for a noble cause,” NDTV reported the actor stating.
Khan isn’t the only one venturing into other businesses. With the likes of stars such as Arjun Rampal, Dino Morea and Suniel Shetty already owning restaurant and hotel businesses, there’s an almost certainty that Khan will get the support he needs.
The restaurant will be opened under the ‘Being Human’ name, and with a flagship retail store recently being opened too, it looks like Khan is more than eager to prompt charitable work from everyone. “We want people to come eat, drink and that is how they will in a way do charity. So when you are wearing something, eating or drinking something you are doing your bit of charity, it is all going to help people towards education and healthcare,” he adds.
As the charity is associated hugely with healthcare, Khan does want to open a hospital in the charity’s name too but he understands that this will take a lot longer than the other businesses. “We have plans of opening hospitals. We would be doing that…after restaurants are out. We need to earn money to put in a hospital, we need some time,” he confirms.
