Shah Rukh Khan helps light-man’s daughter go back to school
The King Khan of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, believes in doing a good deed with his right hand while not letting his left hand know about it. A recent addition to his philanthropy is providing financial aid to a 5 year old daughter of a light-man.
Mohammed Azaz Shaikh has been a light-man in Bollywood for the last 12 years and also a freelancer for Balaji Telefilms till the start of 2013. Azaz is married to Zarina Parveen has two children, son Sohail, eight, and daughter Nisha, five. The family was going through a difficult time and Mohammed had to take up odd jobs as means of earning his daily bread, later things got worse and being unable to pay the fees on time, he was forced to discontinue his daughter’s education.
It was luck by chance when Zarina participated in ‘Lux Chennai Express Contest’ and was declared as the winner. Shaikh’s wife met Shah Rukh Khan on October 19, at a function held at a hotel in Mumbai. She not only got an opportunity to enact the legendary train scene with King Khan but after finding out about her family’s condition, SRK called her backstage and offered help by sponsoring her daughter’s education.
A reporter saw a person from SRK’s office take down the complete address and telephone details of the couple.
