From the boy next door to a bad boy and now someone who is being very human, here’s tracing Salman Khan’s eventful journey!
Stardom was no cakewalk for Salman Khan, even if belonged to a filmy family. In 1988, he made is debut on the silver screen with a minor role in Biwi Ho To Aisi. It was Sooraj Barjatya’s Maine Pyar Kiya in 1989 that made him a superstar overnight and even got him his best debut award.
Boy next door (1988): Known to be experimental with his hair do... Salman Khan retained his long hair look for a number of films during late 80s and early 90s. Post he kissed stardom with his solo debut Maine Pyaar Kiya in 1989 followed by Baaghi, Sanam Bewafa and Pathar Ke Phool what so ever he ded became a thing to be followed by others. OVER THE YEARS: Salman Khan

He delivered back-to-back hits in early 90s, including Baaghi, Patthar Ke Phool and Sanam Bewafa. Despite these blockbuster successes, all his films in 1992-1993 resulted in flops. In 1994, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, earning over 135 crore, became one of the biggest Bollywood hits ever. Since then Salman, has been making and breaking his own records by registering various hits to his name and his last release, Ek Tha Tiger, that has touched the Rs. 200 cr mark.

Six pack man (1994): His reluctance to wear shirts and his sculpted chest became a rage not just amongst the fans but also amongst his fellow actors in Bollywood. Many got inspired from his physique and his topless life size posters in girls

“After Rajinikanth only Salman has managed to create such fan frenzy. He is the Rajinikanth of Bollywood,” says film expert Komal Nahata.

1988 
Boy Next Door 
Known to be experimental with his hairdos, Salman Khan kept his long hair look for a number of films during the late 80s and early 90s. After he kissed super stardom with his solo debut Maine Pyaar Kiya in 1989, followed by Baaghi, Sanam Bewafa and Pathar Ke Phool, whatsoever style he sported became an instant rage within
no time.

Six Pack Man
His reluctance to wear shirts and his sculpted chest became the in thing not just among fans, but also among his fellow actors in Bollywood. Many got inspired by his physique and his larger-than-life topless posters in girls’ bedrooms and boys’ gyms became a usual sight. He went on to be voted as the 7th most good looking man in the world and the first in India by People Magazine.

Hair he comes (2003): Salman Khan

2003
Hair He Comes
Salman Khan’s Tere Naam hairstyle became as much of a hit as the film itself. So much so that it made it to the list of top 10
memorable hairstyles in Bollywood according to an entertainment portal.
Back then, almost all salons had a big poster of Salman sporting the hairdo, and a long queue of youngsters asking to get the cut.

2005
Spikey Salman
From the long flicks blocking his sight, Salman went chop chop to spikes. This look, like all his other looks, got him a thumbs up from style critics and was widely followed … and perhaps it was because of this that he sported this look for the longest time – 3 years — keeping it short even as he tried different styles.

Spike-r Salman (2005): From the long tresses falling on his eyes and blocking his sight, Salman opted to go for a spiked look. This look like all his other looks got him a thumbs up from style critics and may be because of this reason he sported this look for the longest time by keeping it short but styling it different for close to three years.

2008
Blond Ambition 
This time, he shocked every one with his blond-ish brown look. He grew his hair to waves and coloured them brown for his film Veer, and did not mind sporting the same look in real life. The look won maximum attention when the pictures of his spat with SRK ruled the media.

2010
Man with a Moustache 

He brought back the mooch style in Bollywood with his portrayal of a cop in the 2010 blockbuster, Dabangg. Though he called veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha as the inspiration behind his moustache, he himself became inspiration for many who sported this look after the film.

    Great analysis. I like how they used that chart to show HITS and MISSES. Currently at work so couldn’t read full article. I hope they can do one article like this for SRK, Aamir, Ajay Devgan, and Akshay Kumar.

  2. rafee

    Great going for salman khan from last 25years.hope he continue to have success for many more years to come. :)

  3. Aryan29

    Another fact about salman khan – In more than 75% of his films he has worked with new directors.

  4. shadow

    After 2005, 3 years 2006-08 was the worst phase of salman as can be seen from the above chart.In those 3 years he was doing films like saawariya heroes baabul saawan seq hello most of them guest appearances for friends and family totally WTF.fans were disappointed.he was spoiling his career in those 3 years.

    But man what a comeback after 3 years directly at number 1 spot without any question or doubt.Giving highest grossers every consecutive year and Making every damn film Blockbuster one after other is no mean feat and not possible for every superstar.Before Only amitabh bachchann has done it.From hereon only salman himself can spoil it or else he can easily maintain this position for at least 3-4years more.

  5. Rosh

    Shows again that he had just a bad period from 2006-08, and not a whole decade

  6. Aryan29

    @shadow yeah well said now only salman himself can spoil it.i hope he is completely aware of it. After Dabangg2 this christmas these are his probable future projects -

    fasel thanks for the post

  8. Kunal

    Salman had 8-9 straight flops before hum aapke hain kaun came?

    1. Aryan29

      Yes kunal he started with HUGE ATBB MPK becoming superstar overnight and continued to give big blockbuster hit films till period around 1992-1993 when he started giving flops but then again came back with HAHK.

      and those days giving 8-9flops was not a big thing as long as you are also giving hits specially big hits.every actor used to do many many films and thus many many flops from sunny deol to aamir khan to govinda every top actor of those times.

  9. Kunal

    Actually he has 5 hits till 1990… After tht fr 2-3 years…he has 1 hit and 8 flops… M going by the chart shown here…

  10. nitesh

  11. nitesh

    salmaan first 20 years kewal 8 se 10 hit film diya hai. most of them heroine dominated salmaan ka sardom 2010 se after dabang suru hua jo avi 2 saalo se chal raha hai.

  12. akki rock$

    nitesh bro i agree with u Salman or srk they are not superstar only akki is superstar

  13. akki rock$

    akki became superstar in 2007.all these khans are manipulated &chor pay media to tell them superstar but they are not superstars only akki is superstar

  14. akki rock$

    haha dono srk-salman ke pas8-10hits he hai according 2film information N they call thmselves superstar for so many years haha

  15. akki rock$

    srk big hits were also heroine dominated films ddlj kkhh dil to pagal hai N other multistarrers salman srk were never superstar

  16. nitesh

    akki rock$ – jaha tak khans ki baat hai selective hone k baad v ra.one and don2 jaisi flop movie de rahe hai. salmaan ki movie wanted just avg hai par salmaan k fan use bb bolte hai. salmaan ne sirf partner hit diya. rest two baagban (amitabh) and no entry( anil kapoor ) ka hero kaun tha sab jante hai. ek hit (partner) dene pe (wanted) jaisi avg movie v bb lagti hai. rahi baat akshay, ajay aur hritik ki to inme se akshay and ajay both are doing more than one movies per year and both are so successful. they have given likes of houseful 2 , rr, singham , bol bachchan and many more hits aur super hits de rahe hai. hritik v jab se selective hua hai jnmd aur agneepath jasi hit diya hai.

  17. nitesh

    now a days u cant pick one superstar. in my opinion akshay ajay and salmaan ye aaj kal k teen superstar hai. ye teen star aaj acche opening ki guarantee de sakte hai. rahi baat srk ki to ab uska time nahi raha. yash chopra to saif ya sahid k saath v kaam karege to opning lag jayegi. rahi baat hit movies ki to salmaan , srk ne apne carrier main utna hit nahi diya hai jitna rajesh khanna ne 4 saal main ( 22 hits) diya. salmaan ne 16 aur srk ne 14 clean hit diya hai.

  18. Ek tha dugglale

    Haha these akki fans real jokerz…..for them srk n salman r not superstarz coz they have given 14 n 16 clean hit acc to komal nahta b4 2011..bt joker kumar is a superstar who have only 1 clean hit b4 2007 n total 4 or 5 clean hits haha shame on akki fans tmhare pass dimaag bhe hai ya nhe yr
