Shah Rukh Khan never beat the drums of his charity work
He is a silent giver, believing charity is never done with personal interest, so his charity news are often out of media coverage.
He adopted 12 villages being the only one who is providing electricity, water, education, medicines and all other basic needs at his own expenditures. There is one organization, called Make A Wish foundation, which works for physically disabled kids. Shah Rukh not only provides huge funds to this organization but also meets these kids whenever he could.
Doing this too, forms him the richest, not by worth but by heart too
