Celebs have edge over genuine social workers: SalmanFebruary 25th, 2012 - 6:34 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Feb 25 (IANS) Salman Khan, who runs charity organisation Being Human for underprivileged people, feels that due to media coverage movie stars tend to have an edge over others who sincerely work toward the betterment of society. And he is not too happy about it.
“We (celebrities) have an edge because we are there on every TV and every screen, good films, bad films, stuff like what we do in restaurants…So, we are there all over and we have an advantage over people who are really great people, and have not been given the coverage because of TRP ratings,” the 46-year-old said here.
“It sucks because if you are doing that kind of (social) work, and nobody knows about you, it’s weird,” he added.
Salman keeps doing his bit as a socially concerned citizen. He sells his paintings, and the proceeds are used for the welfare of the underprivileged.
Last seen in “Bodyguard,” Salman will soon be seen sharing screen space with ex-flame Katrina Kaif in “Ek Tha Tiger.”
