The netizens have been heaping praises on Salman Khan for his great move.

Interestingly, Salman himself visited Bhaijaanz Kitchen on Sunday (April 28, 2021) to inspect the quality of the food prepared for the frontline COVID-19 warriors. Each meal packet consisted of pav bhaji, a packet of biscuits, a water bottle, and a cup of tea. The packets were distributed among the frontline workers who are on duty 24*7, including police personnel and BMC workers.

His mother even sends handmade tiffin for the police personnel that has been stationed outside his house on security duty. So Salman bhai thought since the lockdown is going on and these workers are on duty 24/7, we should start sending food packets for them and try and make it easier for them,” said Rahul Kanal, the core committee member of Shiv Sena who has been executing this initiative, in an interview given to Indian Express.

During the first wave of COVID-19, Salman Khan had kickstarted an initiative named “Being Haangryy” van, to help the immigrant workers who were stranded in Mumbai without work. The initiative was organised by the NGO Being Human, which was found by Salman.
