In an interview with a daily, a vertically-challenged artiste Pravin Rana said, “Nobody cares much for us, but Salman bhai stood by us during these trying times. We were surprised when we learnt that Rs 3,000 had been deposited into our accounts on Tuesday. No other actor has come forward to help us.” He recalls an earlier interaction with the actor and said that while they were shooting for Bharat, he had told them to ask for help whenever they have an emergency need.
