Salman Khan thanks Abdul Sattar Edhi, voices desire to meet Geeta
Salman Khan might have not known how popular or effective his Bajrangi Bhaijaan movie would become when he was shooting for the film. Bajrangi Bhaijaan not only ended up being a smash hit and grossed more than Rs 300 crore at the box office, it also helped raise the plight of estranged Indian girl Geeta.
Salman recently in an interview, thanked Pakistani NGO Edhi Foundation for taking care of Geeta and also said that the girl must be provided a better lifestyle in India than the one she was living currently.
“We should thank the NGO in Pakistan (Edhi Foundation, which has looked after Geeta all these years) for supporting her and giving her a good life. We should respect the fact that they have kept an Indian there for such a long time,” he said.
“She must be having her own family and friends there. We should make sure her life out here is a lot better than it was there,” said Salman.
Salman also said that he wanted the Indian government to take care of the issue, rather than himself.
Salman also said that if Geeta ever decided to meet him, he would happily meet her.
“The government is looking into it and I think they are very competent people. For us to try and find out ke maa baap kaun hai would be difficult. Galat maa baap tak pahunch jaati then she would be unhappy with us so let the government take care,” said Salman.
