Salman has been providing food-drinks and other essential items to the needy along with sending money for the daily wage workers and migrant labourers working in the film industry. The actor has also been taking care of the villages around his farmhouse in Panvel by distributing food to them. He has also launched Being Haangryy food trucks to distribute ration to poor people. The actor also recently extended financial help to around 32,000 daily wage workers and 90 vertically challenged wage workers registered with the All India Special Artistes Association.
Salman has also been trying to create awareness about the virus and asking people to follow the protocols of the lockdown by making music videos. On the work front, the actor was expected to come out with his film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai on Eid this year. However, considering the theatres are shutdown, the film has been indefinitely pushed.
