Salman Khan Distributes 5000 Meal Packets To Frontline Workers
With the second wave affecting major cities in our country, many Bollywood celebrities have been trying to help the people in need. Salman Khan has also joined the bandwagon as he stepped out to distribute 5000 meal packets to frontline workers including medical and police personnel, BMC workers and cleaners in Mumbai.
Shiv Sena’s Rahul Kanal told indianexpress.com that the actor came down to check the quality of food that will be distributed to the frontline heroes. He said, “Salman Khan has immense respect for frontline workers. His mother even sends handmade tiffin for the police personnel that has been stationed outside his house on security duty. So Salman bhai thought since the lockdown is going on and these workers are on duty 24/7, we should start sending food packets for them and try and make it easier for them.”
“We were at Bhaijaanz Kitchen today where the snacks are being prepared. We have sent out 5,000 packets on Sunday. For now, we are sending these food packets from Byculla to Juhu and Bandra East to BKC, even at the jumbo Covid facility. In the coming days, a double number of packets will go out,” added Kanal.
During the initial days of the lockdown last year, Khan had decided to spend his time at his Panvel farmhouse. The actor composed two songs during this time, and had also started a ‘Being Haangryy’ van to distribute ration to migrant workers stranded in the city without work.
Workwise, Salman Khan’s much-awaited film – Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, is finally arriving in theatres on May 13. The film will have a simultaneous OTT release on Zee5. The film also stars Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff in key roles. Apart from Radhe, the actor will also be seen in Antim alongside Aayush Sharma. The film is directed by Mahesh Manjrekar where we will get to see Khan in a cop avatar, while Sharma will essay the role of the antagonist in the film.
