Bollywood’s one of the most famous and prominent actor Salman Khan shared a lot about his brand ‘Being Human’ at a TiE Global Summit 2018 which was held in Mumbai a few months ago. The actor also shared that how he came up with the name.
For the past 10 years, he has been selling t-shirts with ‘Being Human’ doodled on it. He launched the foundation by the same name, a non-profitable trust for better health care and primary education facilities in 2007.
When the ‘Sultan’ actor was drinking he spotted a friend of his on the other side of the room with the text ‘Human Being’ – Khan was drunk at that time so he read it as ‘Being Human’.
Khan instantly called his sister and told her about the name and she thought of this as a great idea, then they registered it.
Salman Khan said at the summit, “You will lose friends if you ask them for money. You wanna do a good deed, do it on your own.”
Salman Khan is a great painter and loves to paint and at the music launch of actor Mithun Chakraborty’s son Mahaakshay Chakraborty, he decided to wear a t-shirt with his own painting.
The actor said, “Two days later, I was passing by linking road (Mumbai) and I saw that all the stores on the street had a replica of the particular T-shirt that I wore.”
This is when the actor thought of coming up with a clothing brand and ‘Being Human’ has established itself with a good name so whatever the money they earn from the clothes, jewellery, e-cycles and gym equipment which is soon to be launched is used for the activities of the charitable trust by the same name.
Salman said in the end, “The worst thing that could happen is that Being Human dies a natural death before Salman Khan.”
