Check Photo: Salman Khan gives head massage to a girl
Salman’s love for philanthropic work is well known. He has been associated with a number of charity events. Recently Salman turned a barber for a charity show, ‘Mission Sapne’.
‘Mission Sapne’ is an upcoming television show that requires celebrities to take on small jobs for a day. The amount collected by undertaking a day’s job by the celebrities is then multiplied and is given to a needy person.
So, for his episode, Salman chose to be a barber. He was supporting a handicapped barber, Qurban Ali. A source said, “For his episode, Salman took on the role of a barber. He extended support to Qurban Ali, a barber who lost both his legs. Although handicapped, he strives to return to his normal life and provide for his family.”
Another source from the sets of ‘Mission Sapne’ said, “While Salman gave haircuts to men under Qurban’s guidance, he offered a champi (head massage) to women as he wasn’t sure about giving them haircuts.”
The show will be aired soon. Sonali Bendre has been roped in to be the host of the show. Some other celebrities included in the show are Harbhajan Singh, Ram Kapoor, Mika Singh, Ronit Roy and Varun Dhawan.
It seems whatever ‘Jai Ho’ actor preaches, practices in real life. In his last movie ‘Jai Ho’ Salman Khan turned a common man and fought for injustice and also helped other people in need. In real life also, he helped the needy barber by turning a barber himself for a day.
On the sets of ‘Mission Sapne’, a youngster approached him and asked him to give him a Salman Khan haircut. Salman happily obliged him and cut his hair under supervision of Qurban Ali.Varun Dhawan who has already shot for the show, became a ‘patiwala’ (labourer) for a day. Varun tweeted, “I am doing a reality show... I am a patiwala. Its a good concept. I have already shot for it at Crawford market.”
He also tweeted, “No no it's just a thought guys I became a patiwala for a day and worked in Crawford market it really moved me.”
show is produced by Sobo films. Smruti Shinde, Director of Sobo Films, said,
“We are pleased to partner with India’s leading channel, COLORS to present
Mission Sapne. The show has an exciting approach towards showcasing the burdens
in the life of a common man through the eyes of a celebrity as they work hard
to generate funds. Through Mission Sapne, we aim to convey to Indian audiences
that no person should be looked down upon and that the smallest achievements
deserve to be cherished in the grandest manner.”
