Bhai, as he is fondly referred to by fans and friends, is also the founder of Being Human Foundation, a charitable organization which also gets funding from Being Human branded clothing,  manufactured and marketed by Mandhana Industries.

According to the report, he has already registered BeingSmart trademark for smartphones that will cater to entry-level and mid-range price segment – all priced under 20,000 INR. It is also likely that a portion of profits from the Smartphone Business will be diverted to Being Human Foundation.
