According to report from DNAIndia on Jan 18, 2013, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is gearing up to open a chain of restaurants and hospitals in various cities of India.
Salman told PTI, "We will start restaurants in metros first...We will open first in Mumbai and Pune and so on.
"The profits earned from them will go to the needy people living in metros. We will tie-up with someone who has the same kind of ideology... we are doing all this for a noble cause,"
DNA quoted Salman as saying, ""We want people to come eat, drink and that is how they will in a way do charity.
"So when you are wearing something, eating or drinking something you are doing your bit of charity, it is all going to help people towards education and healthcare," the actor said.
"We have plans of opening hospitals. We would be doing that...after restaurants are out. We need to earn money to put in a hospital, we need some time," Salman said.
"There are perks attached to it (to my name) that I can use my name and raise money, but I think 'Being Human' will be a lot bigger than Salman," he said.
Bollywood actors Suneil Shetty, Dino Morea, Arjun Rampal and Mithun Chakraborty are already into hotel and restaurant business.
