Salman Khan, the unparalleled King also called ‘Sallu Bhai’ by his fans has completed 25 years in Bollywood yesterday.
‘Biwi Ho Toh Aisi’, the first movie of Salman got released on August 22nd, 1988. This movie which is basically a family drama featured Salman in the role of Mr Shaikh’s younger brother. The movie also starred Rekha and Farooq Shaikh. However, Salman Khan’s voice was dubbed by someone else in the film.
The movie couldn’t prosper but in December 1989, Salman Khan acted as the main lead in Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’. With Bhagyashree as his co-star, Salman Khan with his hard work made the movie a blockbuster hit. This was the turning point of his life. Salman never had to turn back. The actor landed in a pool of fame and stardom.
Salman Khan’s career accelerated after ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’. His 25 years in Bollywood witnessed both success and failure. The actor has given critically hit movies like Saajan, Khamoshi, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Tere Naam. Sanam Bewafa, Love and Veer were the routs in his career. A strong will power and dedication undoubtedly brings in success. The actor has given superhits like Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Hum Saath Saath Hain, Biwi No. 1 and Partner. And how can we not mention the line up of his five back to back blockbusters. Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2 had created record in minting money. After all these superhits, his flops stands nowhere in his careergraph.
When it comes to settling down in life, Salman Khan have always kept a distance. Marriage is something which Sallu Bhai never talks about. But readers must be aware of his string of relationships. I wish he gets married soon.
Inspite of all the success, Salman Khan also has some tensions to care of. The actor is on a trial for a hit-and-run case dating from 2002. He also has charges of hunting down the endangered chinkara and blackbuck deer.
Anyway the actor has done a lot for poor children and people. I guess you know the reason for such a huge fan count. Salman Khan celebates his silver jubilee in Bollywood with his hands full of projects like Kick, Mental and No Entry Mein Entry.
