“I beat Sonu Sood and Prakash Raj on screen. But these children are affected by cancer for no fault of theirs. They don’t smoke or drink, but still suffer from this disease. And they still fight it. They are the real heroes.”
A video of Salman Khan visiting children afflicted by cancer has gone viral. Salman was requested by Govinda to meet his wife’s nephew who was suffering from cancer and was admitted to the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai.
While the kid and the other people in the ward seemed happy to meet Salman, the actor’s only concern was when the child would get to go back home. “Yahan se kab nikal rahe ho bhai? Ghar kab jaa rahe ho? (When are you leaving this hospital? When are you going home?),” he asked, holding back his emotions. Salman then went on to meet the other kids in the hospital and happily posed for pictures with their families.
In an earlier interaction, Salman had spoken about how children affected by cancer are the real heroes. “I beat Sonu Sood and Prakash Raj on screen. But these children are affected by cancer for no fault of theirs. They don’t smoke or drink, but still suffer from this disease. And they still fight it. They are the real heroes. I have met children who are in the last stages of cancer and they do not look stressed about it. Besides, people lack common sense and try and keep cancer patients away from them because they think it is contagious,” he lamented.
Salman Khan is connected to a few charities through his organisation Being Human and is often seen at various charity events. Being Human supports children’s education through a couple of NGOs and also pays for the treatment of children with heart ailments.
