Salman Khan is known to have a big heart. And the most recent testimonial does like this: While shooting at Commando Training School in Patiala for his upcoming film BODYGUARD and was approached by a Granthi (prayer reader) from the nearby Shri Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib Gurudwara to help in reconstructing a new wing of the Gurudwara.

Salman agreed and immediately after returning to Mumbai the actor kept the promise he made and promptly sent across money for one lakh bricks for Gurudwara. After some convincing Salman's brother in law, Atul Aghnihotri confirmed that Salman and the crew visited the Gurudwara twice while they were in Patiala

Atul Agnihotri added, "Around the commando Training School where we shot, people have strong faith in the Gurudwara. So all of us, including Salman, visited the holy spot on the first day, and went back to seek blessing on the last day."

Atul explained that the Granthi has asked if they wanted to do kar seva (service) since the Gurudwara authorities planed to construct community rooms for worshipers. He adds, "So all of us, including Salman decided to donate one lakh bricks to construct the rooms."

The upcoming Eid release, in which Salman plays a bodyguard, opens in theaters on August 31, 2011. It will be the third Eid release of Salman after blockbusters like WANTED (2009) and DABANGG (2010).

While shooting in Patiala, Salman and Katrina were mobbed in crowds, leading to a woman getting hurt in the commotion. Salman met her, and gave her an autograph after chatting with her.
