As per a report that came in The Economic Times, Salman Khan is all set to launch his brand of smartphones under the name Being Smart. The report mentions that he will be collaborating in this venture with his sister Alvira Agnihotri. The smartphones will be targeting at the middle class segment, and the initial models have been reported to be priced below Rs 20000.
It will be in directed competition to brands like Oppo, Oneplus and Micromax. Salman Khan has already selected a Chinese plant to make the models. The proceeds of the phones will go to his various social initiatives like his Being Human initiative, while the management will handled mostly by the members of his family. Sources say that that the smartphones will initially be sold online.
This initiative needs to be lauded since it offers a lot of employment opportunities to many people, though I am not sure how another smartphone brand will be welcomed in the market. One thing for sure, Salman Khan fans would be glad to make a piece of this their own. But Twitter, as always, has some very smart alec comments to say about the whole development…
So are you excited by Salman Khan’s new smartphone plan?
