Dubai (Web Desk): A Dubai-based Pakistani expat, Aly Malik, has bought a Dubai vehicle number plate bearing the Bollywood superstar Salman Khan's birthday: 27/12 under the 'S' series.

On the superstar's birthday, Malik vowed to gift the number plate - which he bought for Dh11,400 - to his hero. It does not end there. He wishes Khan to use the number plate and later sell the plate to raise money for Dubai Cares and Being Human, Khan's charity organization, Khaleej Times reported.

Malik said: "I was in modelling before becoming an entrepreneur. When I was a model, I used to give all my income to my mother who used to donate it to the needy people. So I was always into charity. As soon as the R series number plate came into existence, I was sure that the S series number plate with four digits will be out soon. Since then I was constantly following up with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) for this particular number plate."

Malik also had the opportunity to meet Salman Khan a few years ago. He was waiting for his car in the valet parking and the star showed up. He managed to tell his hero that his favourite Salman Khan movies include Partner and Wanted.
