We all know that Salman Khan loves to paint and the actor has not sold any of his paintings. He has instead gifted them to his family and friends. He gifted a huge wall portrait to his sister Arpita Khan, later gifted Kareena Kapoor a live-sized painting of two lovers, a monochrome painting of a man to Asin, three paintings to Chitrangada Singh, one each to Kabir Khan and Mahesh Manjrekar and also one to his close family friend Bina Kak.
The idea of selling his paintings came when a big businessman impressed by his painting of a mother-son locked in an embrace offered the actor a sum of Rs 20 Lakhs to purchase it. Salman refused the offer and charged a whopping 1 Crore instead as the painting is close to his heart. The businessman without second thoughts picked it up and Salman invested the money in his Being Human charity foundation.
Since then, Salman Khan has been receiving many offers from various people to buy his paintings and now the actor has decided to sell some of his works and the earnings will go straight to the Being Human charity foundation. A source close to the actor was quoted as saying to Mumbai Mirror,
"Salman's paintings are all about the emotions of life. They are focussed on love, family ties and the oneness of religion, which are all feelings that resonate with the actor. They are extremely personal and he does not paint for money or fame; he does it for the joy and peace it brings him. His family and friends are always gifting him canvases, paints and brushes, but Salman insists that his best works are on life-sized frames with hands. Those will be the paintings up for purchase too."
