Salman Khan Completes 25 Years in Bollywood
So I hear from my Salman Khan sources it was today when Salman Khan started the shoot for his first movie Biwi Ho To Aisi [Note: Movie was released in 1988 but the shooting started on 09/09/1987]. He sure has come a long way from that role. Here’s a look at Salman Khan’s 25 years in Bollywood.
Family: 27 December 1965, well let’s just say a famous superstar was born & he was none other than Salman Khan. Born to Salim & Salma Khan, Salman was destined to be a superstar. Today known as Yaaron ka yaar with a massive fan following Sallu bhai is loved by many in Bollywood & beyond.
Movies: While Biwi Ho to Aisi failed to create any hype, his next release Main Pyaar Kya did wonders. The dance moves, dialogues, songs everything worked perfectly and made him a superstar. This was yet followed by other great movies like Baaghi, Saajan, Hum Aapke Hai Koun, Andaz apna Apna, Karan Arjun, Jeet, Hum Dil and the list goes on. During these 25 years Salman Khan has attempted pretty much all genres of acting that Bollywood offers & has wonderfully done so. This brings us to the famous 100 crore club of Bollywood.
100 crore club: With Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard & Ek tha Tiger crossing the 100cr mark, this is probably the best phrase in Salman Khan’s career. Four back to back 100cr movies, nobody could ask for anything better. He has also appeared in the highest grossing film eight separate years during his career, a record that remains unbroken.
Being Human: Salman has started an NGO called ‘Being Human’ which sells T-shirts and other products online and in stores. A portion of the sales goes to a worthy cause supporting the underprivileged. Being Human Foundation is a registered charitable trust set up by Salman Khan for helping the cause of the underprivileged.
Best-Looking Man: In 2004, he was voted seventh-best-looking man in the world and the best looking man in India by People magazine, USA. Salman also has a wax replica made of himself at the London Madame Tussauds making him the 4th Indian actor to have a wax statue.
Ups & Downs: As every other human being, Salman also had his fair share of ups & downs in his film career as well as personal life. Negligent driving, hunting of endangered species, relationship problems were all part of Salman Khan’s life in this last 25 years. In August 2011, Salman also admitted he suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia.
Whats Next?: And the finally the question that remains, when are you getting married Salman? Though must say us fans love the bachelor status As a critic once wrote “reviewing a Salman Khan film is like ironing a pair of jeans: really, what’s the point. People will watch it anyway”. Today Salman has reached a place in Bollywood which many crave for, yet Salman admits he is less bothered about this numbers game. Well we wish you all the happiness & greatness. As Salman says he makes movies for his audiences & what he fans would enjoy, I don’t think we can ask for anything more. Here’s wishing the best & only the best for the future. Love you lots Salman.
