Bollywood’s ‘Bad Man’, Gulshan Grover, did a whole lot of good for children with autism today.
The Indian actor with more than 400 Bollywood and Hollywood movies under his belt was at the Dubai Autism Centre to meet and greet children with special needs and their families.
Grover, popular for playing negative characters in films, stopped by during his visit to the Dubai to show his support for the social cause. He took photographs with the children and signed autographs for parents, who were called in for the event.
Sara Baker, head of the Community Service Unit at the centre said his visit showed his involvement in community initiatives.
“We were touched by his keenness to learn more about Autism and the way he interacted with the students and their families. He will always be remembered for his commitment to humanitarian initiatives.”
The actor was given a brief presentation on autism disorders and the future plans of the centre, which included a new facility to meet the growing demand.
Hayula Mourad, the head of Business Support and Communication Unit, gave him a tour of the centre, after which he spent time interacting with the students.
Baker said he will be remembered “for his commitment to humanitarian initiatives.”
