First look: Salman Khan in <i>Ready</i>

Salman Khan has shown his philanthropic side on many occasions and at the music launch of his upcoming film Ready, the actor felicitated workers living in the Film City.

Salman, invited Film City workers to the music launch and honoured them with clothes.

'When I was shooting for my film Bodyguard I realised that there are so many people who work day in and day out and when we organise events we call such people, who don't even appreciate anything. So I thought that we should call those people who work here,' Salman told reporters in Mumbai.

'Ideas just come to me, so this time I thought why not felicitate the people of film city because these are the people who are the masses and have also been a part of the film. We have shared such a long relationship with them and no one invites them for any events,' he added.

The workers were very excited to receive gifts from Salman Khan and be honoured by the entire cast and crew of the film including Asin, Zarine Khan and director Anees Bazmee among others.

Salman even distributed chocolates to the children of the workers.

Asin was elated too, to be part of this music launch with a difference.

'I feel very happy to be in front of the film city workers who have helped us make the film that we have made. We take pride and pleasure to showcase our trailers and songs in front of all of them,' she said.

Ready is slated to hit the big screen on June 3.
