Woooooaaahhh! The title seems to be damn exciting for Salman Khan Fans. Oh yeah, it is indeed a moment of happiness for bhai fans, as he is venturing a new business of the small screens.
After One Plus partners with Mr. Bachchan for their products, Salman Khan has altogether started a new business venture and soon will be launching his own brand of smartphones under the name “Being Smart.” We all are aware of Salman, being the brand ambassador of the organization Being Human.
Talking about Being Human, it is a Mumbai-based charity that works in education and healthcare for the underprivileged in India. It was founded by Bollywood star Salman Khan in 2007. The foundation performs many charitable activities. It funds the education of 200 children at the Akshara High School in Mumbai and another 300 through Aseema, a Mumbai-based not-for-profit. The foundation supports the VEER Initiative, a program to train differently-abled people.
After talking about the organization founded by the superstar, let me just tell you something about him in brief. Salman Khan born on 27th December 1965, is an Indian film actor, producer, singer and television personality. In a film career spanning more than twenty five years, Khan has received numerous awards, including two National Film Awards as a producer, and two Filmfare Awards as an actor. He is an active humanitarian through his charity non-profit organisation, Being Human.
And most importantly, he is bound to make breaking news with lots of controversies surrounding him and he is wedded with various legal troubles.
Reports and current news stated that, Salman Khan is all set to venture in to small screens. He is looking out for investors who are ready to invest in his venture. Looking forward into this business, he is already registered the brand name, “Being Smart.” The smartphones when launched, will be launched by this name.
In spite of the initiative by the Indian Government of Make in India, the smartphones will be manufactured in China. Salman Khan has looked up a place in China, were the phones will be manufactured and will be placed under the banner of Being Smart. Also said the operational management team for the brand will be in India, and it will have on board top executives, having previous experience from companies like Samsung and Micromax. (Salman Khan, is really taking care of each stuff when comes to business. It’s his second venture, first being the venture of Being Human in the fashion sector, apart from acting and producing films).
Talking about the smartphone, it is said that it will be highly competitive against the big brands like, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi. This means, the phone is all set to battle against the top Chinese brand of smartphones in the market. The smartphone devices will be running an Android Operating system in them and will be roughly priced below ₹20,000/-. So people looking for budgeted phones under 20K, should hold on for a while, for this brand to come in to market.
Initially the device will be available online and only in select stores of Being Human. After some time, it will also be available at authorised retail stores for sale.
Salman Khan had previously tried entering the humongous market for smartphones through partnerships with existing smartphone OEMs, but had to step back owing to high royalty charges. However, it seems the actor is willing to give it one more shot; it is said that he is looking for investors for his latest venture. The Being Smart android phones might enter the market before the festive season this year.
So here is a chance for all of you to wait, and buy this phone (if planning to buy one) and if not, do check out for its specs and features on its launch.
To Bhai (Salman Khan) and all the Bhai fans, All the Best for the new venture. Hope you bring in more business to India and help the nation grow.
