“Zindagi mein teen cheez kabhi underestimate nahi karna, I, me and myself”. Oh yes! We are talking about the Dabangg star Salman Khan. You may love him or hate him, but you can’t ignore him.
Newbie Ayushmann Khurrana says, “Jitna Entertainment Salman Khan de rahe hai India ko, utna Koi nahi de Sakta”
At a recent award function Aditi Rao Hydari said, “Salman Khan is himself an award!”
Why is this man loved so much? Despite several flops, controversies tagged to his name, Salman Khan is still amongst the top actors in Bollywood.
Below are a few reasons why everybody loves Salman Khan
Salman Khan is always ready to help:
One of the main reasons why he stands as a winner. Salman is the first name that comes to any stars mind when in trouble. E.g: when Sushmita Sen’s daughter was hospitalized, she turned to none other than Salman Khan for help. Another example: When Dia Mirza’s mother was sick, it was Salman Khan yet again who came to her rescue. Even on professional front, Salman Khan has made several special appearances for free. When most actors refused the role of a supporting actor in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, it was Salman Khan who readily came forward to do it for KJO. This is why, this superstar rocks!
‘Being Human’ foundation:
Another reason why Salman Khan is truly great is his involvement in several charities. Being Human Foundation is a registered charitable trust set up by Salman Khan for helping the cause of the underprivileged. His foundation focuses on two major areas: Education and Healthcare. Early last year, Khan offered to pay Rs. 40 lakh for releasing around 400 prisoners from around 63 prisons in the state of Uttar Pradesh via his NGO.
Godfather to many Bollywood newbies:
Salman Khan has always encouraged talent. He not once hesitated to play godfather to Bollywood first timers. Thanks to Salman Khan, today we have talents like Katrina Kaif, Himesh Reshammiya, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Sajid-Wajid in our film industry. Did you know, the secret behind Hrithik Roshan’s super sexy body is our very own Sallu’s training.
His “like I care” attitude:
One more reason that makes Salman different from other stars is his ‘I don’t give a damn’ attitude. His interviews are hilarious. If the superstar finds a question asked to him, dumb, he will return the same question. Nothing affects our superstar. If he doesn’t like something or someone, he very conveniently ignores them. Despite being bashed by the critics for his films, he still remains bindaas and continues to act in similar films. Well, now that’s some attitude man!
Box office hero:
He is the hero of the masses! Almost all his films are blockbusters. Salman Khan is one of the few stars to guarantee a huge opening not only in the A centers, but in the B and C centers also.
Also, did you know, Salman Khan is one of the very few stars who made it to the People’s Magazine. Other’s who were featured on the prestigious cover were: Dharmendra and Hrithik Roshan. Salman Khan was featured on the People’s Magazine for being one of the most handsome man ever in the world.
Salman Khan – a name that Bollywood will forever remember!
