It appears that Salman Khan is not unlike his Bajrangi Bhaijaan character — the actor recently granted the wish of a 11-year-old Pakistani boy when he went to meet him in Mumbai, reported The Indian Express.

The young lad, Abdul Basit successfully underwent a liver transplant in Delhi after severe complications. The child who developed severe jaundice soon after his birth had to go through continuous phototherapy for two months after his birth to combat brain damage and hearing loss.

However his condition worsened later when his skin thickened. The only viable solution was a liver transplant for which he was referred to Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals in Delhi where his surgery was successful.

Basit's family was keen to meet the superstar and were more than happy when their request as fulfilled as Salman met the boy on Monday and snapped a picture with him.
