There is no denying that Bollywood’s Dabangg Salman Khan has a heart of gold. He goes to extra lengths to help poor and needy people and even founded the charitable foundation ‘Being Human’ to serve poor people. But did you know during the initial days of his struggle, Salman used to actually look for beggars at night to give them food? Yes, you read that right! The actor on the sets of his 1991 film Kurbaan after packing up would look for a beggar to donate food, reveals his costar Ayesha Jhulka.
In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Ayesha showered heaps of praise on Salman calling him a 'wonderful human being'. She revealed that after the shoot, he would pack whatever food was left on the sets and look for someone in need to give it. “It was just wonderful. I'm very fond of Salman, because he is a great human being. I remember back then whenever we used to finish the shoot and we were going back home, I would see him packing the food that was balanced,” she was quoted saying.

Ayesha, who debuted in Bollywood with Salman-starrer Kurbaan, added that the 56-year-old actor would make an effort to look for a beggar even if it was late at night. The Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar actor asserted “He would make an effort to find a beggar, even if it was late at night, (and they were) sleeping on the road, then waking the beggar up. Or somebody was really needy of food, and actually making an effort, stepping out of his car and giving that food. I think he is a lovely human being. No doubt a brilliant actor.”
Meanwhile, Ayesha Jhulka made this candid confession during the promotions of her web series ‘Hush Hush’, which marked her comeback. The Amazon Prime Video series also featured Soha Ali Khan, Juhi Chawla, Kritika Kamra, Shahana Goswami, and Karishma Tanna.
