However, in the same interview, Vindu mentioned that Salman has a blank card and he doesn't need much money. He also added that Salman Khan's cash is managed by his new helper, as the actor has appointed his ex-helper, Nadeem, as the head of another company. Vindu also mentioned that Salman has helped a lot of poor people. He stated that even before the actor launched his clothing line, Being Human, he used to help people, and he has always been helpful. Vindu can be quoted as saying:

"Salman has a blank card. He never has money because he doesn’t need it. Now, instead of Nadeem, whom Salman appointed as the head of some other company, another guy handles the money he gets. I can’t even imagine how many poor people he has helped with this money. The Being Human organization came much later, but he has always been like this, very helping.”
