We have seen and heard about the mega star Salman Khan cycling on the roads of Mumbai, not bothered about the traffic or the traffic jam that gets created in the bargain. Well, this time round, Salman was at it again but all done for a cause that’s closer to Salman’s heart than anyone and anything else: ‘Being Human’.
Yesterday saw Salman Khan leading India’s first ever international cycling event, ‘Mumbai Cyclothon-Tour De Mumbai’. This event was grander and had more grandeur than all the recent events put together. Many of tinsel town residents had assembled to give the event a star glow. A huge crowd lined up to see the cyclists on the ever-busy Bandra Reclamation grounds. The crowd consisted of many amateur cyclists, working professionals, children, and even housewives! There were a total of 14 professional cycling teams competing with each other. Each world standard team was present along with the Indian national cycling team. Talking on the occasion, Dr. Raghuram, President, TI Cycles said that “We aim to help put Mumbai on the international cycling map as well as contribute to a healthier and greener environment through the BSA Hercules India Cyclothon, Mumbai-2010”.
On the Khan household, besides the ‘most-Wanted’ Salman, one also saw presence of his brother Sohail Khan and also sister Arpita, who seemed to be happy about her brother taking her on a bicycle ride. All in all, it was definitely an event to remember!
