Salman Khan to bear all the treatment expenses of a 14-year-old boy

We hear a lot about Salman Khan’s philanthropy but TOI lensman Sachin Haralkar caught the man in the act. While leaving an event at Bandra’s Mehboob Studio yesterday, the star spotted a man and his wheel-chair bound son, looking for help. The 48-year-old actor gestured to them and after the two came forward, with much trepidation, Salman enquired about their troubles. The man, Kailash Chandanshiv, 45, told the star that he hails from Belapur and is in the city to seek treatment for his 14-year-old son Vijay, who is unable to walk because of a medical condition.

Immediately, Salman took out a piece of paper and wrote down a doctor’s number, asking Kailash to contact him. He then told an awestruck Kailash that all the expenses will be borne by him. TOI spoke to the doctor, Sandeep Chopra, who is attached with a South Mumbai hospital, while also acting as a consultant to Salman Khan’s Being Human Foundation.

“We have treated Vijay before but he lost touch with us. After meeting him near Mehboob Studio, Salman immediately called me up and said that we need to take care of Vijay’s case on priority basis. We will ensure that financial and medical help is extended to them,” said the doctor.

Meanwhile… After successfully hosting four consecutive seasons of Bigg Boss, Salman Khan will appear on the small screen next year as the host of a new show concerning social causes. However the star says that it will not be anything like Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate.

“We are working on something which is different. It is not be along the lines of Satyamev Jayate. We will have a lot more entertainment in it. We will rock next year,” Salman told the media at an event.

The actor who had also hosted another reality show Dus Ka Dum, added: “The show that I will be hosting will change a lot of things. It’s a brand new show altogether, which will talk about social causes.”
