MUMBAI: When Bollywood actor Salman Khan decides to be generous, he does so in style! We hear that after wrapping up the last schedule of ‘Dabangg 2’ shooting in Dubai – a song sequence ‘Saanson Se’ sung by Sonu Niigam, the crew decided to indulge in some retail therapy in a popular mall of Dubai.
News of this trip reached Salman, and he decided to join the entourage. On reaching the mall, Salman declared “You shop, I’ll pay.”
The crew – more than 20 of them – familiar with the Bollywood heartthrob’s generous nature, were not surprised. “Salman is known for doing these little things for everybody around him. On the sets, he even ensures that everybody has eaten properly.”
The crew stopped at Splash & ICONIC stores in Dubai Mall whose CEO, Raza Beig, was only too happy to serve Salman Khan and the Dabangg 2 crew. He said “I do believe that one should learn from simple gestures, be it in Bollywood or in large or small businesses. These gestures become memorable and I am sure his crew will remember this for a long time or simply forever and it’s only fair to say Being Salman, Being Human.”
No matter that the final bill raised was close to a lakh, Salman Khan did not even flinch – in fact, he went around shopping for himself as well. A source close to the unit revealed, “There were many crew members. They picked up a lot of stuff – clothes, shoes, belts, watches and more. After a point in time, Bhai joined in as well.”
Manoj Chaturvedi, executive producer of Dabangg 2 revealing that this is Salman’s way of thanking his team said, “Salman bhai and his family are known to do such kind things. He treats his team very well.”
