Mumbai (PTI) — Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has denied he is donating to Nepal earthquake victims through his Being Human NGO.

The 49-year-old “Dabangg” star took to his Facebook page to clarify the rumors about Being Human contributing to the relief fund for the earthquake-affected people.

“There are rumors about Being Human donating money for the Nepal earthquake. This is NOT TRUE as the Being Human Foundation currently operates only in India,” Khan wrote.

The earthquake, measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale, hit the neighboring country last week, killing 7,040 people so far.

Earlier, there was speculation that superstar Akshay Kumar would donate the first day box-office collection of his latest release “Gabbar is Back.”
