Khan’s fans have always tried to imitate his style and mouth his popular dialogues.

On Salman’s 54th birthday, let’s take a look at his most iconic characters.

Salman Khan’s most iconic characters

Chulbul Pandey from ‘Dabangg’

Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’ franchise is one of the most favourite series amongst his fans. His character Chulbul Pandey is loved all over. Chulbul is the ultimate quirky cop who is very emotional yet very badass. The dialogues and steps from the film’s title track have been imitated by Salman’s army of fans all over the globe and have become quite a rage. The first installment came out in 2010 and the third one came out this year in December.

Bajrangi from ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Bajrangi was one of the most endearing characters of Salman so far. The movie released in 2015 and fans loved to see their favourite star in such a sensitive character. His real name is Pawan but as he is a devotee of Lord Hanuman, he was fondly called Bajrangi Bhaijaan. This character was less about the action and more emotionally inclined that had our hearts melting.

Radhe Mohan from ‘Tere Naam’

Salman’s ‘Tere Naam’ character Radhe Mohan was an absolute rage. His hairstyle became a trendsetter as the actor’s male fans were rocking it all over the country. It was called the ‘Tere Naam cut’. The film’s storyline was very moving and Salman played his character to the T.

Sameer from ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’

‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ is one of the most loved and popular movies of Salman. His character Sameer made hearts flutter across the globe. His female fans were gushing over his romantic side portrayed in the film. The movie had some really iconic scenes that are re-enacted even till date. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial had shown a very unique perception of love and had made Salman the nation’s heartthrob.

Prem Bhopali from ‘Andaaz Apna Apna’

‘Andaaz Apna Apna’ is hands down one of the funniest movies ever made in Bollywood and it will still crack you up no matter how many times you watch it. Contributing to this laughter riot was the iconic duo of the 90’s Aamir Khan and Salman Khan. Salman played the character of Prem Bhopali, who is a daydreamer with a goal to get rich by marrying an heiress but is very gullible. Along with Aamir, Salman spiked up a laughter fest in the entire nation.

Sultan Ali Khan from ‘Sultan’

Sultan was one of the most fierce characters Salman has ever played. ‘Sultan’ was about a wrestler who goes through the ups and downs of life and how he overcomes them. This was a very different character from what Salman had done in the past. He co-starred alongside Anushka Sharma and his character was very motivational which was loved by the critics and the fans alike.

Tiger from ‘Ek Tha Tiger’

Salman Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ character Tiger was again, quite the trendsetter. He went by multiple names in the movie as he was a Spy who worked for RAW. His chequered scarf became a rage among his fans as they began wearing it as well. The movie released in 2012 and did really well at the box office.

We extend our heartiest wishes to Salman Khan on his special day. And we are pretty sure he will be playing some more interesting characters in the year to come.
