'Being Human' is the brainchild of Salman Khan that undertakes efforts towards spreading education and healthcare to the under-privileged. He had earlier tweeted his support for the cause by saying, "Wanted to tweet this for the longest time, saw a pic of surabjeets sister, it Killed me. Felt real sad for her. Help me help her."
