According to the Hindustan Times, the money which Salman's haircutting act would fetch would then be donated to a person in need.
The "Dabanng" actor put on a selfless act yet again, as he gave away ₹1 lakh cheques to all crew members of "Jai Ho". Reportedly, Salman and brother Sohail Khan gave away around ₹2 crore in total. The cheques were a token of appreciation by the stars for the crew's contribution to the film.
The news was affirmed by Salman's father Salim Khan, reported Daily News Analysis.
Abhishek Bachchan Turns 38
Junior Bachchan turned a year older, as he celebrated his 38th birthday on Wednesday.
Amitabh took to his blog to wish son birthday greetings and sounded nostalgic as he wrote: "Abhishek just turned 38...! It is obvious cliché to start speaking suddenly of the day and moment he was born and what we were up to, of how he behaved when young, of his growing up, his days then to now, little incidents of nostalgic flavor."
Meanwhile, Farah Khan, director of Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek starrer "Happy New Year" posted a picture, wishing the birthday boy.
