Khan will abandon his image as a Bollywood bad boy and instead seek to portray himself as a socially responsible citizen.
Boney Kapoor, who is producing Wanted, told IANS: "The 30 short films will be unleashed in quick succession one after another.
"This was a side to Salman that always existed. It just needed to be harnessed. Earlier too he contributed hugely to charitable and social causes. But not in this organised fashion."
The films, which are being directed by Nikhil Saini, will go on air a week before Wanted is released on September 18.
