Being Human is not a Publicity Stunt - Says Salman Khan !
Posted On: Tuesday, 14 August 2012
When Salman Khan raised his voice to help Sarabjeet Singh, friends close to him stopped him saying that the people will think that this is a Publicity Stunt for Ek Tha Tiger. In a recent Interview with Hindustan Times, Salman Khan talked on his work:
I’m so fed up. Ek toh round the clock promotions with no time to breathe, and then the advice that any charity work at this time will look like a publicity gimmick. How frustrating is that?
Of course I’ll use my star power for my NGO — and my film (Ek Tha Tiger). At least I say, chhati thok ke, that I’m contributing five percent of everything I earn, towards the NGO’s work. What angers me is when people expect me to come for events for free, trying to use the charity card. Arrey, Salman ko bulao toh Salman ka price do. (If you want Salman, you’ll have to pay his price too). If I keep doing everything for free, how will I fund my NGO? Just yesterday we organised a cataract camp. We are doing operations for 40-45 people everyday. What do others do.. just talk?
Even when I campaigned for the release of Sarabjit Singh who’s lodged in Pakistani jail, I only had good intentions. But I’ve had to put that on hold because I’m being told that, close to the release of Ek Tha Tiger, it’ll look like a gimmick. Ab kya karun, if I take it up after 5-6 months, you’ll say it’s a publicity stunt for Dabangg 2. Bloody frustrating.This is very sad that the media publishes a news in such a way that it looks like Publicity Stunt. Does Salman really need a Publicity with wrong means ?
