If you tried searching Salman Khan’s Facebook page in the last couple of days and an error message came up, then you were not alone: the kindhearted actor crashed his own site! On Wednesday, he tweeted: “Appna Face book is not jst for time pass, use it to find work. beinghumanworkshop.com #Beinghumanjobs. Kaam ki cheez.
‘Everyone on my fb page who dn’t hve a job,Ive spoken to my frnds to hire n employ them,obviously u need to fulfill the requirement.’ (His Being Human team looks after the NGO and helps those in need.)
In a matter of minutes, his Facebook page was down. The traffic to his page was incredible and it upset Salman that it affected the page like that. A source close to the actor said: “He asked his technical team to look into the matter and resolve it at the earliest.”
#BollyTalks applauds the actor for his benevolence and hopes that the page will be back up soon!
Someone who got no ovation from Sidharth Malhotra is filmmaker Karan Johar. ICYMI, the tabloids reported a couple weeks ago that he was responsible for starting the careers of a few directors and young actors, which included Sidharth. The actor, whose Ek Villain hit Indian cinemas today, has rubbished all the talks about landing great roles in Bollywood because of Karan.
He worked with the filmmaker as an assistant director before he gave him an acting part in Student of the Year and then did a few more projects that were backed by him, which gives the perception that he is promoting him which is not so.
Sidharth says Karan is far too busy to “push” his career. Regardless, the 29-year-old is “grateful to him for showing trust and confidence” in him and says “I am thankful to him he is the reason why I am here”.
