Salman Khan is the latest in a series of Bollywood actors to step into the food and beverage industry by opening restaurants. Apart from food joints, the star is also planning on opening h0spitals, which he says will be purely for noble causes and not to earn money from.
Salman, while talking to the reporters said, “We will start restaurants in metros first…We will open (the) first (restaurants) in Mumbai and Pune and so on. The profits earned from them will go to the needy people living in metros. We will tie-up with someone who has the same kind of ideology…We are doing all this for a noble cause”. Bollywood stars like Sunil Shetty, Mithun Chakraborthy, Dino Morea and Arjun Rampal are already in hotel and restaurant business.
Salman currently runs a charitable organization known as ‘Being Human’, which helps people in need in regards to their health and education, among other things. The ‘Dabangg 2’ actor now plans to venture into new areas of business under the same name. According to the ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ star, when people come to eat and drink at his restaurants they are indirectly helping out with the charitable cause and are thus doing charity themselves.
