This time round, Salman Khan showed his “Good Samaritan” side yet again by helping a news cameraman suffering from brain haemorrhage. When the family members got to know that the amount needed for their son’s treatment is beyond their reach, as they had already spent more than Rs. 5 lakhs for the treatment, they decided to approach Salman Khan.
