If people don’t like this post I don’t care. You have a choice to unfollow me. This is what I think and feel.

Fahed Abousher, the brother of Faraaz Khan, thanked Salman for his very generous help. A TOI article revealed what Fahed had said. “It was very kind of Salman sir to call on us and foot Faraaz’s hospital bill. He spoke to me for 10 minutes, during which he not only inquired about Faraaz’s health, but also remembered my father (actor Yusuf Khan) and his respect for him. Salman also let us know that he is in touch with hospital authorities and asked us not to worry.“
Fahed continued, “He is getting the best care possible now”. He also mentioned that besides acting, Faraaz had been pursuing his interests in music and horticulture, especially bonsai plants. “He has been keen on doing something related to growing bonsai plants, but his ill-health has been a little roadblock for him with regards to pursuing it fully.”
