Rumors: Salman Khan’s Brand Being Human To Land In Trouble

Salman Khan’s charity Being Human Foundation, which was founded in 2007 is in trouble, as the foundation has received a show cause notice by Bruhanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), stating that it might get blacklisted.

What happened was earlier in December 2016, BMC had decided to start 12 Dialysis Centres all over Mumbai, each to perform 10,000 procedures a month. BMC selected Salman’s Bandra-based Being Human foundation as one of the centres, where the foundation was supposed to set up 24 machines and was also given the responsibility of maintenance of the centre and hiring the staff to perform the procedures.

However, Salman Khan’s foundation failed to do so and thus, received a show cause notice by the civic body. A BMC official confirmed the news and said, “Being Human, which was shortlisted for running the dialysis centre at Bandra (West), had paid the bank guarantee and was granted all the necessary permissions to go ahead with the project. But with the project not taking off, we have issued them a show-cause notice warning that they would be blacklisted.”

While Being Human has a different story to tell. One of the representatives from Being Human says, “The Being Human Foundation has certain mandatory requirements which need to be included in contracts. There were discussions around those which ultimately did not materialise. There was no formal contract/MoU signed at all.”

Being Human foundation is a charitable trust founded by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan that provides education and healthcare services to underprivileged. Its funding is done through direct donations and sales from branded clothes. Many Bollywood celebrity friends of Salman also support the foundation.
