1. How Did Being Human Begin?
In 2007, Salman Khan launched the Being Human Foundation (BHF) , a registered non-profit charitable trust which provides financial support for healthcare and primary education.
In 2009, he introduced the ‘Being Human’ clothing line at the HDIL Couture Week. The biggest Bollywood stars walked down the ramp wearing early versions of the Being Human T-shirts, with Katrina Kaif even wearing a gown with a print of Salman Khan’s artwork.
This was also the first time the Bollywood star spoke about his rationale behind starting a clothing line.
In late 2010, at a music release function, Salman wore a T-shirt with a print of one of his paintings. Two days later, as he drove past Mumbai’s busy shopping street, Linking Road, he noticed imitations of his T-shirts everywhere.
Speaking to Forbes India about Being Human’s origins recently, Salman had said:
He entered into a partnership with retail giant Cotton World to manufacture and sell the T-shirts offline, while online they were up for sale on BookMyShow. By December 2011, Cotton World sold 65,000 units of the classic Being Human T-shirts. Being Human watches were also sold on beinghumanwatches.com – both the website and the product has been discontinued.
