Salman Khan’s NGO Being Human gets show-cause notice from BMC; blacklist warning given

Salman Khan’s Being Human Foundation is making the headlines over facing a show-cause notice with a warning to be blacklisted by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). As per reports, the NGO was not able to set up concessional dialysis units in Bandra over a year after being assigned the project by BMC. An agreement was issued by the BMC which states its public-private partnership with Salman Khan’s Being Human Foundation. As per the agreement, the civic body was responsible for allocation of the space whereas Being Human would be responsible for hiring staff and maintenance of the centres.

In December 2016, BMC had decided to start 12 dialysis centres which would be equipped to perform 10,000 procedures each month. Being Human foundation was expected to install 24 dialysis machines at a facility in Palli Hill. According to an official, “the Being Human foundation was expected to run a dialysis centre at Bandra (West). We had issued them all the necessary permissions and were paid the bank guarantee too. But the organisation was not able to run the project; we have issued them a show-cause notice that they would be blacklisted.” The NGO was also aware of the possible blacklisting.

“The Being Human Foundation has certain mandatory requirements which need to be included in contracts. There were discussions around those which ultimately did not materialise. There was no formal contract/MoU signed at all,” a representative from the Being Human foundation was quoted saying. The civic body has invited the proposals for the project in July 2016. In the agreement, Salman Khan’s Being Human Foundation had offered to provide dialysis services at Rs 339.50 against the BMC’s rate of Rs 350

Richa Chadha Ropes In Boyfriend Ali Fazal For Her Directorial Debut

A Punjabi production and singing debut to her credit, Richa Chadha is geared up to mark her directorial debut with a short film set in the future. As what may be seen as an ideal V-Day gift for beau Ali Fazal, the actor has roped in the latter to feature in the outing.

The actor filmed for the currently untitled project, a satirical comedy set in 2025 that deals with the issues plaguing people as a result of unchecked population growth, last week. To credit, she only has Fazal, who she refers to as her "support system". "It is always exciting to work with him because he is a fabulous actor. We managed to wrap up three days' worth of work in one. That is testimony of his dedication," she says, further heaping praise on designer Shaahid Amir and make-up artist Tanuja Dabir for enabling a smooth production.

Given her love for satire, it isn't surprising that Chadha, who also wrote the script, chose the genre to mark her foray into direction. "I have always wanted to explore satire. I am glad my friends trusted me and came on board on such a short notice. I look forward to casting more deserving actors in unconventional parts."

Also featuring Aadar Malik and Satyajeet Dubey, the venture has been produced by her friend and Fukrey co-star Vishakha Singh.
