Salman Khan’s inspirational life journey from being a superstar to being human for millions of his fans
Salman Khan, 54, the eldest son of India’s legendary screenwriter writer Salim Khan, has made a brand for himself. Though he made his acting debut as a supporting actor in the 1988 film, ‘Biwi Ho To Aisi’, it was his boyish charm in the 1989 film, ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ that helped catapult him to fame at the age of 25, and helped him garner a strong female fan base.
From playing a lover boy to an action star, the superstar has charmed many and hit the Jackpot numerous times with films like, ‘Kick’, ‘Dabangg’, ‘Wanted’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Sultan’, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and many more. In a career spanning over 3 decades so far, he has come up with stories and films with different genres.
Earlier, on his way to superstardom, he didn’t mind sharing screen space with other leading actors of his era – Sanjay Dutt in, ‘Saajan’ (1991), Aamir Khan in, ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ (1994), Sunny Deol in, ‘Jeet’ (1996), Shah Rukh Khan in, ‘Karan Arjun’ (1995), ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ (1998) and ‘Hum Tumhare Hai Sanam’ (2002), and Akshay Kumar in ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’ (2004) and ‘Jaan-E-Mann’ (2006). He was one of the rare superstars to never say no to such two-hero films.
The ‘Biwi No. 1’ star might have commenced his acting journey as a man all women would love to be with, but in recent years he started creating a name for himself in the action genre by starring in movies like, ‘Wanted’, ‘Ready’, ‘bodyguard‘ and ‘Kick‘. He even entertained the masses as a host of TV shows like, ‘Bigg Boss‘ and ’10 Ka Dum’. ‘Bigg Boss’ – a controversial reality show that has completed thirteen seasons, has been one of the reasons why even non-couch potatoes chose to stick to the small screen. Salman makes the show worth the time.
Fondly called ‘Sallu bhai’ by many, he is also known for launching the careers of actors like Sonakshi Sinha, Sooraj Pancholi and many others. Among the composers, he’s known for giving breaks to talents such as Himesh Reshammiya, Armaan Malik, Amaal Mallik and Sajid-Wajid.
A lot of actors have also gone on record to say that they are indebted to Salman. He has been an inspiration to many, especially when it comes to imitating his ‘six-pack abs’, including actors like Aayush Sharma, Sooraj Pancholi, Arjun Kapoor and even Hrithik Roshan, who got in great shape, all thanks to Salman’s motivation. In fact, Arjun also featured in the popular song ‘Superman…Salman ka fan’ from his film, ‘Tevar‘ .
Salman also runs ‘Being Human Foundation’, which supports underprivileged people in India. Started in 2007 in partnership with various companies, the foundation takes initiatives in the field of education and healthcare. The foundation helped many people during this ongoing Coronavirus pandemic all over the world. Let’s pray that Salman’s initiative keeps running on and on for generations to come.
With over Rs.200 crore riding on him, his die-hard fans across the globe may only be eagerly waiting for his films –‘Radhe’, ‘Kick 2’, ‘Tiger 3’, ‘Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali’, the ‘Veteran’ remake and a lot of others.
