Not just ‘Tubelight’, but these five films too prove that Salman Khan’s camaraderie with kids is best
'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' (2015)
The list of course has to start with Kabir Khan directorial, 2015 blockbuster 'Bajrani Bhaijaan'. Salman played the role of an Indian man who makes it a mission to take a little mute Pakistani girl back to her home which is in Kashmir. Salman's moments with the little girl played by Harshaali Malhotra were heart touching and brought tears to everyone's eyes. This is only possible when you share a beautiful camaraderie with the little ones.
'Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai' (1998)
Yet another beautiful film where Salman Khan delivered one of his finest performances of his career. He played the part of a rich playboy who falls in love with actress Twinkle Khanna's character Komal. The twist comes with the arrival of a boy named Kabir (played by Aditya Narayan) who happens to be his illegitimate son. The scenes and chemistry between Salman and then child actor Aditya were nothing less than a treat for all fans of the superstar. They were fantastically written and performed.
'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' (1998)
This Karan Johar directorial revolved completely around the characters played by Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Rani Mukerji and child actress Sana Saeed. But still, Salman Khan's extended cameo appearance left its mark. He only had a few scenes with Sana Saeed, but each one of them carried an endearing quality to make you smile. Indeed, Salman's charming chemistry with Sana struck a chord with everyone.
'Ek Ladka Ek Ladki' (1992)
Directed by Vijay Sadanah, this is by far one of the first films that witnessed Salman sharing screen space with kids. The actor had played the character of Raja who lives and takes care of his three orphaned nephews. Salman's character fakes being the father of the kids to extract revenge from a spoilt rich girl, played by Neelam, who loses her memory after an accident. The warm bond between Salman, Neelam, and the kids is both fun and endearing to watch.
Directed by David Dhawan, 'Partner' is still remembered for superstars Salman Khan and Govinda's onscreen bromance. But apart from this, Salman's superb chemistry with child actor Ali Haji is definitely another highlight of the film. Ali Haji's character Rohan plays the part of Lara Dutta Bhupathi's son. As Salman's character Prem, the love guru falls in love with Lara Dutta, he tries to befriend and convince Rohan to accept him as his father. The scenes between Salman, Ali and Govinda turned the film into a pure entertainer.
