A Pakistani driver based in Dubai, who is a big fan of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, has bought a number plate bearing the actor’s birthday 27/12.
According to Khaleej Times, Aly Malik paid 11,400 dirhams to buy the number plate. It belongs to the S series – with S being the first letter of Salman’s name.
He says he will present the number plate to Salman Khan.
Malik, who met Salman Khan some time ago, wants the actor to use this number plate on his car for some time and then sell it to raise money for his charity Dubai Cares and Being Human.
The newspaper quoted Malik as saying, “I was in modelling before becoming an entrepreneur. When I was a model, I used to give all my income to my mother who used to donate it to the needy people. So I was always into charity. As soon as the R series number plate came into existence, I was sure that the S series number plate with four digits will be out soon. Since then I was constantly following up with the Roads and Transport Authority for this particular number plate.’’
According to Malik, “Salman Khan’s Being Human is what inspires me. In fact, I still remember when I heard about the brand and its cause for the first time, I went to the store and purchased Being Human T-shirts in bulk. I also wish that Salman autographs those T-shirts for me and I can sell them and raise even more money for charity.’’
