Salman Khan’s Golden Hearted Human Side: Fulfills the Dream of a 3 Year Old Cancer Diagnosed Kid
Farhan Rana Apurba, a 3 year old child had been suffering from Metastatic Neuroblastoma (Cancer) and had been kept alive on palliative pain control in Saroj Gupta Cancer Center and Research Institute, Kolkata. Farhan made a wish to meet his dream star Salman Khan. At first the little life responded well to chemotherapy but after chemotherapy surgery was not possible as the tumor was so advanced. As the days are counting for him, “Make A Wish Foundation” made no stone unturned to fulfill Farhan’s last dream and made a quick arrangement for the meet up with Bhaijaan Salman Khan.
Next morning, Farhan along with other hospital stuffs took flight from Kolkata to Mumbai. Dr Pradipta Das said that they received “a VVIP treatment both in Kolkata and Mumbai Airport”. Right after an ambulance of “Make a Wish” Mumbai division took them to Ranibag where the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor was busy in shooting for his film “Jai Ho”.
After some time Salman met Farhan and associates. He was so calm, polite and kind to the child, trying to make him laugh taking him in his lap. “I got the chance to become close to him when he meet me, handshook and gave me a hug. He asked about the child regarding his disease, treatment and prognosis. We took lots of Photos there and I was stunned to see the 3 year old child that how tons and tons of energy suddenly loaded in a terminally ill patient when we all help him to make his only dream into reality”, told Dr Pradipta Das.
“Farhan’s parents were crying when we were returning home as they knew the they would lose their child in few months. It’s a GOD gifted chance for me to meet Salman Khan. I will never forget 19th September 2013 when Farhan made a wish and fulfilled one of my wishes. When I handed over Farhan to the ward nurses, he gave me a kiss which I never forget in my lifetime.” remembered DR. Pradipta Das, Saroj Gupta Cancer Centre & Research Institute, Thakurpukur, Kolkata.
The incident took place in 2013 and we are now in 2017 where little Farhan is no longer in this world. Wherever you are, rest in peace. And lastly, thank you for such a kind gesture Salman Khan, indeed a man with golden heart.
