Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has come to help Faraaz Khan as he is battling for life in a hospital in Bengaluru after being diagnosed with a brain infection.

The superstar has taken the responsibility of Faraaz’s medical bills and treatment.

Salman Khan was praised by Nawab Shah for his kindness.

Nawab Shah who has worked with Salman in ‘Dabangg 3’, took to his Instagram handle to share the news and praise the superstar.

Nawab wrote, “This is where bhai comes in, God bless you bhaijaan, and this not just news I am sharing it’s a fact I know.

Faraaz, who starred opposite Rani Mukerji in the 1998 release "Mehndi" and Vikram Bhatt's 1996 thriller "Fareb", suffered three consecutive seizures owing to a herpes infection in his brain that had spread from his chest. He developed pneumonia as a consequence of the seizures.

The actor's treatment requires Rs 25 lakh for his treatment, for which his family has started a fundraiser. Till now, over Rs 3,20,000 has been raised.

Explaining his illness, they stated: "Faraaz had been suffering from a cough and an infection in his chest for nearly a year. Recently, the coughing had aggravated so due to the prevailing pandemic, he decided to consult the doctor over a video call."

"Over the video consultation on 8th October 2020, the doctor saw his condition and recommended that he gets himself admitted to a hospital as his cough was quite intense and to prevent any further infection, hospitalisation was the best thing to do. So, immediately we called for an ambulance. However what happened after that has shaken us up to the core," the statement further said.

"Faraaz was admitted to the emergency ward of Vikram hospital where we found out that he suffered three consecutive seizures due to a herpes infection in his brain that had spread from his chest. Besides, while he suffered from these seizures, he swallowed the mucus and saliva of his cough which entered his lungs and caused pneumonia," the statement continued.

At the moment, Faraaz is still unconscious in the ICU.

"The doctors are trying their best to get him out of danger but that will require another 7-10 days of critical care...It has been years since Faraaz has worked in films. And 25 lakhs is a huge amount to be arranged. We have a simple life and earn our living with our job and enjoy spending the weekends with our family," the family said in the statement.

Actress-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt shared a plea on Twitter to help raise funds for Faraaz's treatment, with a post: "Please share and contribute if possible. I am. Would be grateful if any of you can as well."
