Speaking to Asianet Newsable, RS Raju said, “As a businessman, during one of my visits to Mumbai about eight years ago, I happened to meet Salman Khan through his manager. The actor was calm and after taking the dates I offered to him as a gift, he spoke of its importance mentioned in the Quran. He said that It also has medicinal value.”

Salman Khan fasts during Ramadan and at the same time also installs a Ganesha Idol during Chaturthi and celebrates the festival.
