“We have no income to sustain. But Salman had given us a hope. He promised a job for me. In fact I worked for couple of days with his shooting crew. He had promised to take me to Mumbai for job,” said Ahmad, adding, he feels like he has become orphaned again. The family had heard about the philanthropic work of Salman but they could never get a chance to meet the Bollywood superstar until last month.
