Family members confirm superstar to merchandise T-shirt line. Close friends already been gifted personalised copies. Proceeds to go to Khan’s charity. Salman Khan gets dressed for a cause with his new T-shirt line, 'Being Human'.

Don’t let the glitz and glamour fool you; Bollywood does have a soul too. And when it comes to charity, few stars do it better than Salman Khan.

In an effort to promote his charitable endeavours, the good Samaritan has plans to open a T-shirt shop to retail his Being Human line.

We’ve already spotted the star in a number of different styles from long-sleeved shirts to fitted tees. “Salman has always been involved in a lot of charity efforts,” says his representative. “He has helped many people who are in need of funds for operations and other medical necessities. The idea for this line occurred as a method of funding his efforts.”
But don’t expect to get your hands on the charitable desgins any time soon. So far, only those close to the star have been seen sporting the T-shirts. The star’s brother Sohail and close friend Aamir Khan have both lent support to the line. Aamir’s grey T-shirt with a motif of Jesus Christ on the front will probably be a bestseller.

The girls haven’t been left out either. Katrina Kaif was photographed in a blue short-sleeved T-shirt. And if you’re not the type to flaunt, there are even accessories like a black cap with Being Human printed on the front.

“Salman is still in the process of finalising the merchandising and the quality of the T-shirts,” reveals brother Arbaaz Khan, who has also been generating publicity for the line by wearing the tees. “Although the family supports him and will definitely give our input whenever required, we aren’t actively involved.”

And Salman isn’t in any rush to reveal when he plans to debut the line either. The Khan khandan has been instructed not to reveal any information until the star is ready to make things public. “Everything is being handled by Salman’s sister Alvira. I believe he will make a formal announcement in August,” confirms his manager. “Until then, even I don’t have any information on the line.”

Salman Khan now launches Being Human gold coins
By: Tushar Joshi Date: 2009-09-15 Place: Mumbai

Salman Khan will launch a new collection of gold coins today under the umbrella of his charitable organisation - Being Human.

The actor, who in the past has launched his collection of Being Human watches, has decided to now add gold coins to his name. The initiative will be a joint collaboration between Being Human and Gitanjali.

A source reveals, "Salman was open to the idea of collaborating with the jewellery house. In fact, he even looked at the creative of the gold coins and approved them before they were finalised. He was quite surprised with the response his brand of watches evoked from friends and family. So when it came to gold coins, he knew it was a way to extend the franchise."

The coins will be part of the Being Human foundation and proceedings from the sale will go to the trust. A source adds that Salman is also planning to further extend his brand. "Being Human started with clothes and then watches. Now he's added gold coins and in the future, plans to incorporate more ideas to raise funds."

Sallu’s sona words...

JYOTHI PRABHAKAR , TNN 26 September 2009, 12:00am IST

When Salman Khan came to town recently for a Gitanjali event, he sent the journos into a tizzy.

The organisers cried themselves hoarse trying to get the photogs to give clicking a break and let him speak, lekin woh kahan maane? They even began to fight among themselves in trying to get a photo op of Sallu.

But the man himself maintained his cool. And as he posed, smile and gelled hair in place, someone in the crowd of journos interspersed with chachas and tais of the organisers and boyfriends of the many young girls who’d congregated there to click Sallu, said loudly, “Kitna handsome hai!”

This made Sallu wave to the crowd – just a tiny wave, a barely there movement of his raised hands and everyone collectively sighed and some even clapped! This sure must’ve made Sallu feel like God and put him in a good mood, for soon, he began to crack jokes and give smart rejoinders to the questions posed to him.

Since he had come to announce the Gitanjali gold coins’ association with his charity, Being Human, talk veered towards sona, and jewellery. “Aap sona khareedenge is Diwali par,”someone asked him. “Definitely. Yeh toh sona hai, agar aap ko chain ki neend sona hoi toh isey le lo,” said Sallu. And who would you want to gift jewellery to, yet another journo asked him. Sallu didn’t get caught in this one. “Mother, sister...” he paused, “aur kisey,” he was prompted. That made Sallu smile and say, “girlfriend ko hi dete hai...” Smart boy, this Khan!

Stars walk the ramp for Salman Khan’s charity

When a show featuring eight of Bollywood’s biggest stars starts on time (or rather, only an hour late), you know you’re in for a great time if not a lesson in high fashion. As fashion doyennes and sundry guests watched Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif walk the catwalk for Salman’s Being Human charity, it became obvious that the show was more about counting stars than counting blessings.

Shutterbugs went into paroxysms of joy at the sight of the Tinsel-towners showing off Being Human merchandise and doing a little jig for the benefit of the cameras. The loudest cheers went up for Salman, dapper in a suit (we wish he’d go formal more often) and Aamir, who kept it casual with a jeans and T-shirt. The collection that did manage to grab our attention was the Shane and Falguni Peacock line featuring prints of Salman Khan’s paintings, with a special mention for the flowing gown, with the embellished illusion neckline worn by Kaif. Gavin Miguel proves to be one of the country’s more underrated designers, while Rocky S and Babita Malkani also presented.

Most of the film fraternity turned up in support of the foundation. The Khan family was in full force with Malaika Arora Khan, a very pregnant Amrita Arora, Salma Khan and Helen, along with friends Farah Khan, Manish Malhotra, Ameesha Patel, Sushmita Sen, Kajol, Kiran Rao, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor. Leading the front row cheering charge was Preity Zinta, who showed her support by wearing a Being Human T-shirt with a mini upchucking her elegant YSL and Chanels for once.

However, it was Pallavi Jaikishan’s show earlier in the evening that really put the ‘couture’ in India Couture Week. The gorgeously embellished sari dresses, kurtas and lehengas were fit for a princess’s trousseau. Our particular favourites were the floaty and feminine saris in lace and tulle and the uber hot chiffon sari-dress. The grandeur of the clothes was beautifully set off by the mounted jewellery, also created by Jaikishan— each individual component was collected by the designer from across the world. Jaikishan added drama by having her showstopper Nayanika Chatterjee sashay down wearing a veil lit up with fairy lights.

Salman Khan’s mom kisses his stepmom
Thursday, October 15, 2009, 9:29 [IST]

Salman Khan’s stepmom Helen was deeply touched by the great show put up by Khan brothers, so much so that she kissed their mother Salma Khan.

Buzz up!
The gesture took place during Salman’s Being Human show at the on-going HDIL India Couture Week. Helen was moved to see Salman, Arbaaz and Sohail, walk hand-in-hand on the ramp. She said that it was a proud moment for Khan family, and so she kissed Salma on the forehead to share the moment of togetherness. She added that she didn’t know what came to her mind at the moment.


It was the first time that the whole Khan family came together. Salma and Helen were sitting next to each other with their daughter-in-law Malaika Arora Khan and daughter Arpita to cheer with the audience.

Salman said that everyone attended the show except his father who couldn’t come. In fact it was he who guided him to take up the fashion show. He added that it was an incredible and memorable moment for him.

Khan brothers also persuaded Salma and Helen to walk the ramp with them at the end of the show. Bollywood actors like Aamir Khan, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Govinda, Sanjay Dutt, Katrina Kaif, Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan too walked the ramp at the show

Salman Khan to launch Being Human watches
Tuesday, May 11, 2010, 15:08 [IST]
By: Upala KBR, Mid-Day

Salman Khan has been wearing the Being Human Watches for over a year now. He has also presented the watches to many of his friends and relatives. But they are not officially available in the market.

Buzz up!
On May 22, Salman Khan and his family will be in Dubai to launch the designer range of Being Human watches. He wants to follow it up by a launch in India and then London.

For my charity
Salman doesn't believe in taking money from people for his charitable organization. He wants to make products and raise funds through them. After launching his range of designer shirts at the couture show last year, he will now launch the exclusive Being Human luxury designer watches at a fashion show in Dubai. His brothers Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan along with sisters Arpita and Alvira, might attend the event.

It is learnt that the actor has personally supervised the design of the watches. An insider says, "The watches will be of international standards, but not priced like them."

Salman was upset on learning that his Being Human t-shirts were copied and sold on Linking Road in Mumbai. He hopes the same does not happen to the watches.

Being cautious

Salman to showcase a limited Being Human collection in Dubai; Pakistani celebrities to model the designs

Sonal Chawla

Posted On Thursday, May 20, 2010 at 02:00:13 AM

Salman Khan is now reaching out to his fans across borders. But, contrary to the actor’s initial plans of officially launching the collection of his charitable trust Being Human, comprising watches, T-shirts and paintings, in Dubai, he now plans to showcase only a limited number of designs in the city on May 27 and 28.


Though Salman had decided to give in to his Dubai-based fans’ demand to showcase the Being Human products internationally, he recently decided to only showcase the exclusive products to a limited audience as he was worried about the designs being copied.

The collection will be showcased by several Indian and Pakistani actors and sportsmen. A source says, “Salman has been worried as the designs of Being Human T-shirts are being copied and sold on the streets in Mumbai. He was very upset because he raises funds through this charitable cause. Because of such malpractices, all the money is going in the wrong hands. He has finally decided that he will only showcase his collection at the moment and will officially launch it later when the trust’s administration is in the right hands.”

“This is the first time stars from Pakistan will be part of the Being Human collection. Apart from Bollywood actors, cricketer Shoaib Akhtar, singer Atif Aslam, and actor Humayun Saeed are few Pakistanis who have agreed to be part of Salman’s noble cause. The two-day collection showcase will be held at the end of this month,” adds the source.

Salman will also be reaching out to his fans by explaining the origin of his organisation and telling them how it helps the needy through the funds they collect.

Sauntering into an afternoon press conference, Salman Khan cut a relaxed and jovial figure ahead of last night’s India versus Pakistan celebrity cricket match. The T20 match was held at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, with more than 40 stars coming together to raise awareness about the Bollywood actor’s charity Being Human, which helps numerous causes around the world.
Khan urged India and Pakistan to unite, casting aside political and historical differences, and discussed the work of Being Human.

Although the charity did not benefit financially from the match itself due to a complexity in the Indian legal system regarding overseas fundraising, Khan received a hefty donation of $200,000 from the Grand Midwest Hotel, where the stars were staying.

“For us, this is [about] getting India and Pakistan not fighting or playing against each other, but playing and walking with each other,” he said. “We might get hammered by people back in Mumbai, but that’s a chance we’ve taken. We just want to show that we are together.” The 44-year-old Wanted star also

teased teammate Chunky Pandey for being frugal and refusing to lend him his sunglasses although the House full actor took it in good spirits while cosying up with screen siren Ria Sen throughout the 20-minute confer ence in Media City.
Khan also bantered with Pakistani captain Shoaib Akhtar, claiming the fast bowler would be out to decimate

India’s batsmen on the pitch. The fast bowler jokingly responded that he would be restarting a career spent tormenting his opponents, diplomatically adding a minute later that, “I love playing against India...they give us a very hard time”.
Although flanked by brother Sohail and Heyy Babyy star Ritesh Deshmukh, all eyes remained trained on Khan, with the A-lister shielding himself behind sunglasses from the familiar flash of a hundred cameras.

“Not everyone can be a leader, but a lot of people like me can be good followers,” said Deshmukh while thanking Khan for including him in his humanitarian efforts. And Khan, who has been known to fall out with fellow Bollywood stars such as Shah Rukh Khan, pre-empted suggestions that his calls for unity may appear hypocritical.

“To anyone saying, ‘How strange is this – you talking about India and Pakistan being together, but you have a problem with some actors’...

Some people don’t see eye to eye,” he said. “It happens everywhere. It could be within families or between neighbours. We’re just trying to make things easy and more comfortable for both sides.” [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

it's tough for a cricketer who has been on and off the national team quite frequently to maintain the focus and emerge as a top performer. despite going through a lot of such tough situations, Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib akhtar is still the man to reckon with.
Not for any reason, the recently appointed Pakistan skipper Shahid afridi insisted that akhtar should be part of the team when they take on big teams like australia and England. afridi believed that the presence of akhtar in the team certainly made a huge difference.

indeed it would. He might be a veteran but his searing pace still can scare the best batsmen in the world. That's the reason he would be the easy choice to spearhead the pace attack for Pakistan who have a very busy summer ahead.

He might have been under scrutiny several times for his attitude and arrogance, but the other side of akhtar shows what a wonderful human being he is.

amidst his hectic schedule akhtar arrived in dubai to participate in the Celebrity Cricket Cup which is being organised by Cynosure for a cause. "i am indeed delighted to be part of this celebrity match. and with Salman Khan playing as our opponent it is certainly going to be interesting," akhtar said.

akhtar is part of the Pakistan Celebrity team who are playing indian Celebrity team at the dubai international Cricket Stadium.

Though not a serious kind of a match, akhtar felt that it would be a different feeling. "Playing against india is a different atmosphere; so it should be fun," he added.

Dubai: The crowd was divided in two halves. But unlike any other India versus Pakistan cricket match, the frenzy at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday night was more for an individual rather than the individual nations.

To say Salman Khan was a crowd favourite would be an understatement. Women – stretching to get a glimpse of the star – had to be escorted down from the first and second floors, for fear they would fall off from the railings.

One fan even considered divorcing her husband of eight years to be with the star. “I love Salman Khan… I was probably one of the first to buy the tickets for the game. I just need to meet him once to convince him that I am the one he needs to get married too,” Riah John, a 32-year-old homemaker and Dubai resident, said.

Forty celebrities, from Indian and Pakistan, including renowned cricket personality Shoaib Akhtar, had flown in to be part of the Celebrity Cup 2010 on Thursday and a fashion show held last night - a two–day event which organisers claim took over two years to materialise.

Khan had admitted during a press conference earlier on Thursday that the Indian team might face issues – on returning home – for agreeing to play against political rivals, Pakistan.

However, the thousands of Indian and Pakistani fans, from all over the emirates, had clearly packed away their differences for the night. “I am here to just enjoy the show. It doesn’t really matter who wins or loses,” Anand Ravi, a call centre executive and resident of Sharjah said.

Gulf News also spotted Indian tennis star Sania Mirza and her husband, Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malek, who said they were rooting for team India. They declined to comment further.

The walk
Before the start of the game, all 40 celebrities - dressed in blue and led by Salman – walked around the stadium, stopping at times to interact with fans, before collecting at centre stage for a group photograph.

Salman won the toss and elected to field first. However, he decided not to play and instead asked brother Sohail Khan to take over as captain.

Pakistan celebrities launched the innings with Saud and Saleem Shaikh as their opening batsmen. Saud hit a six in the first over, bowled by Indian actor Aftaab Shivdasani, but was clean bowled on the very next ball.

However, the highlight of the over was when actor Suniel Shetty sustained an injury after a ball hit him on the right foot. Fellow actors Ritesh Deshmukh, Aftaab Shivadasani and Javed Jaffery rushed to Shetty’s side and a few minutes of attention and ice packs later, the actor was back on his feet and entertained the crowd till the end of the event.

At the end of the15 overs, India had 121 to chase, which Salman said his team would chase in 11 overs itself.

He kept the promise. India won the match.

Salman Khan gave us the inside scoop on everything from his latest movies to helping the needy to kickstarting a new cycling fad

"WE DON'T LIKE it, we don't believe in it," said a sombre Salman Khan. "It's got nothing to do with the public, it's to do with a minority."
The Bollywood heavyweight was discussing the longstanding animosity between India and Pakistan, which flared up yet again on November 26 2008 with the Mumbai terrorist attacks, co-ordinated by a Pakistan-based militant organisation.

"It's a fraction of people who start something like 26/11," continued the Wanted star, talking exclusively with City Times ahead of Thursday night's T20 celebrity cricket cup, featuring dozens of stars from India and Pakistan.

"What will come out of the match is India and Pakistan not playing against each other, but playing together and walking together. That's a good message."

The thrilling contest, which took place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, was held to raise awareness of his charity Being Human, as well as promoting peace and unity between the neighbouring nations.

Among the famous faces on show were Sharman Joshi, Riya Sen, Suneil Shetty, Arbaaz Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Imran Nazir.

India snuck a victory with just one ball to spare an overthrow by fast bowler and Pakistan captain Shoaib Akhtar proving decisive.
Although Salman was the nominal captain of the India side, he chose not to play; unsurprising given his admission that, "I haven't held a bat in 25 years".

Instead, the 44-year old stays fit by getting on his bike. "I cycle almost every other day to a film shoot, be it 30 or 40 kilometres, then have a shower and I'm done with my cardio," he said.

Salman participated in the Mumbai Cyclothon in February, drawing a predictable slew of media attention and reigniting the public's interest in the activity.

"It was lovely," he recalled. "In fact, from what I hear, all the kids have started to turn back to bicycles and a lot of people are buying them again." Besides which, he added, a journey through Mumbai's traffic-clogged streets takes the same amount of time by bike as it does car.

Famed for his powerful physique, Salman said he works out for 90 minutes a day even when he's not shooting a movie. This rises to twoand-a-half hours when he needs to get fully sculpted for the camera and though he doesn't kickbox any more, Salman said he still gets a thrill from “punching and kicking a bag”. The Human touch All the stars we spoke to were quick to praise Salman’s noble humanitarian efforts with Being Human, which the Filmfare Award-winner said is deliberately cloudy in its mission statement.

“Every charitable trust has a focus – be it children or cancer...we have no focus,” he said of the organisation, which was established in 2007. “If money can save a life and we have it, we will do it.

“But we do not believe in miracles. If the doctors have given up hope, and we know for a fact that the patient will not survive for more than two or three months, we will not touch that patient. If the money can be used for somebody who could get better, we’d rather give it there. It’s ruthless, it’s heartless, but this is something that we believe in.” Similarly, Salman said that people asking for donations for their children’s wedding would probably be

turned away. Although he might help them “on a personal level”, the foundation is unlikely to divert its funds in this manner.
“My parents (screenwriter Salim Khan and first wife Salma) got married on 60 rupees (Dhs5), so it doesn’t make any sense to us,” he explained.

However, Being Human is dedicated to all manner of causes including child labour, autism and especially medical procedures.
"We do a lot of surgeries, every single day there are two or three happening," said the actor, adding that the charity keeps low administration costs and ensures that “every penny” sent to another charitable trust is accounted for.
While the cricket match itself did not generate any money for Being Human, due to a hitch in India’s laws dealing with overseas fundraising, Salman received a pledge of

Pakistani pop singer Adeel Chaudhry: “This is a great opportunity for people to meet and spread love.
Someone asked me earlier who I thought would win, Pakistan or India, and I said no one.

Love is going to win.

That’s the message: if normal people can be good together, then why not governments?”

Comedian and match commentator Shakeel Siddiqui: "I was supporting both India and Pakistan. Dubai is a very big, rich and glamorous city; I've been here 100 times before!" Actress Reema Khan: "The India versus Pakistan match is of great importance.
I don't know why the media portray that everything is so negative in Pakistan. We must put aside our differences and work wholeheartedly for peace, prosperity and love.
Salman Khan is a blend of stardom and humanity; he's doing all this for a very noble cause.
He has the support and love of our country." Pakistani batsman Imran Nazir: "It was a noble match.There's a nice atmosphere here, and there's a community between the Indian and Pakistani stars." Bollywood actor Chunky Pandey: “I think this match was path-breaking. But we were all afraid of Shoaib Akhtar because he’s the Rawalpindi Express! I volunteered to play because the cause is so great.
It’s not about winning or losing, it’s the spirit of the game.”

Salman launches limited edition ‘Being Human’ watches
By IANS, 10 October, 2010
Bollywood star Salman Khan has launched a limited range of luxury watches named after his “Being Human” charitable foundation.

The 24 pieces are conceptualised and designed by Salman himself and the money from their sale will support the causes of education and healthcare.

“I personally think watches are a great way to express one’s personal style. With ‘Being Human’ watches, the wearer also expresses his or her support for the twin causes of education and healthcare. ‘Being Human’ watches are about looking good and doing good,” Salman told reporters here.

The watches will be available in a number of stores and are being distributed by Mak Luxury Watch Pvt. Ltd.

“These watches have Salman’s vision to combine three excellent components - great watch-making, signature style and affordibility. These three elements inspired us to develop these watches,” said Arun Malhotra of Mak Luxury Watch.

The watches are priced Rs.7,500 onwards.

They're available, finally, off the rack. Salman Khan's Being Human cotton T-shirts that Bollywood actresses including Kareena, Katrina, Priyanka, Bipasha, Preity and Rani were proud to wear for him on the ramp.

And they are cheap, Rs. 495 for a man's tee and Rs. 435 for a woman's, go to a Cottonworld outlet anywhere in the city and grab one before they sell out like tickets to the macho star's last hit Dabanng. Salman, who is excited about his fashion merchandise through which he can touch more lives, said, "I chose Cottonworld as their ethos is to provide quality and comfort at an accessible price."

The heartening news is that Rs 100 from evey sale will be contributed towards the Being Human Foundation. Lavin Lekhraj, a partner of Cottonworld, added, "We are proud to associate with Salman's foundation and help the twin causes of education and healthcare. Business houses have a role to play in the greater good of society and this is one of our numerous initiatives in the area." Currently, only the basic logo T-shirts are available and more designs will follow.
