Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, ever since the coronavirus pandemic hit the country, is leaving no stone unturned in helping the poor and the needy. He has been donating for the daily wage workers and sharing various videos on social media to make people aware about the coronavirus. Recently, he even shared a video in which he was seen providing what looks like food packets for the local villagers who have been in need, from his Panvel farmhouse. After initiating the ‘Anna Daan Challenge’ now he has come up with a new idea and of donating food through his food truck. As per the latest reports, the Tiger Zinda Hai actor has now started his own food truck with the name Being Haangryy.
In the video, a person can be seen distributing ration from the ‘Being Haangryy’ truck. In the beginning of the video, the truck is seen standing outside the station at Khar Road, Mumbai.
Shiv Sena leader Rahul Kanal thanked the actor for doing his bit and tweeted, "Thank you @Beingsalmankhan bhai for being there and silently doing something which is needed,service to mankind is service to the almighty!!!Jai Ho!!! I shall surely try and do my bit following the lockdown norms and request our Fanclub family to practice the same #BeingHaangryy."
Talking about the old video, it showed packets of food being loaded on various bullock carts and tractors not only by Salman but a lot of others including actress Jacqueline Fernandez and his friend Iulia Vantur, who have been staying with him at his Panvel farmhouse amid the COVID-19 lockdown. The video was shared on Instagram and was captioned, "Thanks for the contribution... thank you all @jacquelinef143 @vanturiulia @rahulnarainkanal @imkamaalkhan @niketan_m @waluschaa @abhiraj88."
