Bollywood is known for its vibrant movies filled with colourful dances, songs, and storylines. The Indian film industry located at Mumbai is famous for many things. Every Bollywood star is popular for their acting as well as for the daily drama that surrounds them. Yet, one thing that might be under wraps is Bollywood’s generous heart. A lot of filmstars from the film industry are known for their kind nature and benevolence. Though some do it in the public glare, there are many others who keep it a private affair. But, their contribution toward the society is indeed a blessing worth remembering. We have listed down top 10 such actors who have made a difference in the world around them.

1. Salman Khan

When it comes to charitable causes, Salman Khan’s name appears amongst the topmost. According to his lawyer, Shrikant Shivde, Salman Khan has spent over Rs. 47 crores in charity. 'Being Human: The Salman Khan Foundation' is a charity that was founded by Salman Khan with the aim of helping the underprivileged. This trust works mainly in two areas: Education and Healthcare. He supports three schools and has helped facilitate the heart surgery for over 600 children. His shows, his paintings and the official apparel line of Being Human gives the financial aid to his foundation.

The actor had mentioned that 'Being Human: Salman Khan Foundation' is an inspiration from his parents. Being Human: Salman Khan Foundation has joined hands with the Marrow Donor Registry India (MDRI) since November of the year 2010 and aids them in maintaining an international list of marrow donors for people suffering from diseases relating to blood such as thalassemia, leukaemia, aplastic anaemia and congenital immunodeficiency states.

MDRI and Salman Khan's Being Human has worked together with the youth through collaborations with some top colleges to make the youth realise the importance of a registry for India. Salman Khan even pledged to donate his own bone marrow to spread awareness on stem cell donation. He kept this pledge by donating his bone marrow to a little girl named Pooja who was in need of a marrow transplant.

In November 2010, Salman Khan pledged his support to the ‘Child Labour Free India Campaign' spearheaded by Bachpan Bachao Andolan. He is a committed and a regular visitor in the hospitals to meet cancer patients and he encourages them on different occasions. He has joined ‘The Maximize Life’ campaign and has offered his support and pledge towards the cancer patients. Indeed, when it comes to benevolence, Salman Khan’s name appears as number one.

2. Shah Rukh Khan

SRK has been closely associated with ‘Make a Wish’ Foundation. The foundation helps to make the wishes of people suffering from fatal diseases come true. Shah Rukh Khan has also been involved in doing concerts and interviews to help out various NGOs.

He has also been honoured by UNESCO for all the charity he does and is the primary Indian to have gotten this recognition.Another aspect of SRK’s generosity is his goodwill toward his colleagues and every member of the film industry. One example can be seen right at his firm Red Chillies Entertainment. All employees associated with Red Chillies Entertainment, SRK’s production house, get top class treatment, no matter their position.

SRK even goes a step ahead by sharing his additional profits with his employees, example being when he shared a majority of the profits made from the film “Om Shaanti Om” among his colleagues as bonus pay. A few years ago when a well-known journalist suffered an accident, post his meeting with SRK, SRK himself managed all his finances as the journalist could not afford it. His big heart is something that only a few people are aware of, yet he indeed remains the King of Charity for all.
