Pune: Bollywood actor Salman Khan today donated blood at a camp organised by a city NCP leader to mark the birthday of Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and also to facilitate blood supply for the victims of Mumbai blasts.
Hundreds of fans were seen jostling and craning their necks to get a glimpse of the 45-year-old actor when he arrived at the camp at Sambhaji Park. Organisers said about 7,000 people donated blood.
Hailing the cause, Salman said, "Blood has no religion, and it is the most precious gift a human being can give."
Anil Bhosale, the NCP leader, said every donor was given a pen-drive as an "encouragement".
Meanwhile, Pawar has said that he is against celebrating birthdays, but the party activists were keen on the event, as it would benefit the society.
