For any die-hard Salman Khan fan, male or female, showing their solidarity to their star would most obviously mean owning ‘Being Human’ t-shirts.
From celebs to little-known nobodies, everyone who loves the beefy star have worn their support for the Khan, ever since he launched the fashion line, under the label of his charitable initiative ‘Being Human’.
The only flaw was how the Bollywood heartthrob, who boasts of an impressively large female fan club, had kicked-off his collection with an exclusive line for the men, and none for the women.
But, that minor hiccup has been cleared.
Female fans, who’ve been eagerly waiting for their turn to wear their ‘love for Salman’, can now do so.
High-street brands Splash and Iconic, which stocks the ‘Being Human’ collection, has announced that the women’s collection will be launched in a day.
“The wait is finally over! The women’s collection of being human will be in stores starting 1st of may. Are you excited?” read the facebook message on Splash Fashions.
The status message was favourited by many, with some writing in to express their joy.
“Omg! I googled it today to know when will it be launched and its coming finally.. Had waited too long for this.. Would love to wear!” facebooked Shazia Khan.
“Yeoooooo finalllyyy,” wrote Fatima Imran Ali.
Initially, there were reports that the women’s line of ‘Being Human’ would hit the Splash stores in March, the same time it was launched in India.
When Emirates24|7 had contacted Splash Fashions about whether the women’s line will be available in Dubai, they were unable to confirm.
The new line will offer an entire range of women's wear comprising tees, trousers, hotpants, and denims.
The delay, however, has not dampened the spirits of his female fans, who’ve had to make do with the men’s t-shirts for want of choice. Many have already bought over-sized men’s ‘Being Human’ t-shirts.
“I just had to buy it. I bought the smallest size and have made minor alterations to make it fit,” announced a beaming Nikita. This teen, like many others, didn’t want to wait till a special line was launched.
“I am a huge die-hard fan of Salman Khan and am loyal to his Being Human brand,” added her friend Shalini.
“A lot of Indian girls buy Being Human t-shirts. Salman Khan is a big star and his fans are crazy about him,” informed a store manager at Ibn Battutta mall store.
The Indian media reports that the INR35-billion brand aspires to turn into a INR350-billion entity by 2015.
The brand, which displays the brand name in different fonts and colours on t-shirts, has been a rage since its launch in 2009.
Apart from Salman’s family, his brothers – Sohail and Arbaaz, sister-in-law Malaika, other celebs like Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha and Priety Zinta also sport the t-shirts.
“All fashion labels are about looking good, Being Human is also about doing good,” Salman had said at the Dubai launch last June.
Proceeds of the sale goes to the Being Human: The Salman Khan Foundation, which was set up by the actor in 2007.
