Bollywood superstar, Salman Khan, is well known for his generosity. And before leaving Kashmir for Jodhpur to attend a court hearing for the verdict of his pending black buck case which is to be announced today, Khan set another example of generosity.

Khan, who is in Kashmir for the shoot of his upcoming film “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” changed the fate of a family of six in the remote village of Diyaroo in Anantnag district of South Kashmir.

According to the Times of India, 75-year-old, Zaina Begum, met the actor while he was filming in Pahalgam asking for help. Begum has reportedly been struggling with her 40-year-old widowed daughter to raise her four grandchildren, who moved in with her after the demise of their father.

After hearing her out, Khan, put her oldest grandson, 18-year-old Gowhar Ahmad Bhat to work on the sets, so he could take some money home for his mother and grandmother as well as his three sisters, Rukaiya Jaan (15), Khalida Jaan (12) and Khushboo Jaan (10).

He has reportedly also asked Gowhar to come with him to Mumbai to work after the shoot of the film is wrapped-up in the Valley.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Kareena Kapoor are also expected to join the crew soon in Kashmir.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
