Salman Khan and his 21 friendly cameos for the sake of ‘dosti’
Dushman Duniya Ka
This 1996 movie had Salman Khan as well as Shah Rukh Khan doing special appearances. The film actually starred Jeetendra, Sumalatha, Manzoor Ali, Laila Mehdin in the lead roles.
This David Dhawan directorial has Anil Kapoor and Govinda luring Juhi Chawla in the whole movie and while everyone wondered as to who will Juhi choose in the end. It turned out to be Salman Khan.
Sar Utha Ke Jiyo
This 1998 film had Naseeruddin Shah, Madhoo, Manek Bedi, Raza Murad, Kiran Kumar and Gulshan Grover, but Salman Khan being a superstar at that time, was roped in to do a cameo. He was seen bashing goons in the film.
This sweet little love story between Sanjay Kapoor Priya Gill had Salman Khan playing a pivotal sequence in the film. He asks for Priya Gill's hand for marriage.
Love At Times Square
This is 2003 movie that has no existence what-so-ever in the history of cinema was directed by and starred Dev Anand with Shoib Khan, Chaitanya Chaudhary and Heene Kaushik. Salman made a small song-n-dance appearance in the film, but his face was printed all over the posters of the film.. The cameo was probably his worst decision ever.
Raveena Tandon shared a cordial relation with Salman Khan at that time and when she asked Salman for a song appearance in her film, he jumped to the opportunity. The song 'Meri Stumping Ho Gayi' did not manage to make a mark.
Saawan: The Love Season
A weird looking long haired Salman Khan kept appearing in bits and pieces throughout the film, as a person who predicts future, and the makers tried to cash on his face by plastering it on posters. But even this did not help the movie's fate.
Om Shanti Om
Just like many A-listers, Salman too made an appearance in the song 'Om Shanti Om' for good friend Shah Rukh Khan, and the number did manage to top the music charts at that time.
Sanjay Leela Bansali was the reason that Salman made an extended cameo in this Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor debut film. He played Sonam's love interest, but the movie proved to be a huge dud at the box-office.
Another example of his 'Bhaichara'. This bro-in-law Atul Agnihotri production, had Salman's face all over its posters. The film also had his then girlfriend, Katrina Kaif in a cameo.
Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani
Salman played himself in the film, where he appears at a cafe where Ranbir is trying to woo Katrina. Little did he know that this would back-fire and Ranbir would succeed in wooing Katrina in real life as well.
Prem Ka Game
The actor made an extended appearance in Arbaaz Khan's 'Prem Ka Game'. He was seen in a music video and also featured in the film. But the film's delay in release made it vanish in no time.
Tees Maar Khan
This one had Katrina Kaif in it, so you pretty much get the whole agenda of Sallu Bhai appearing in the song 'Walah Re Walah'. But actually it were the rumours of him doing the song , that made him do it in the first place. Farah has said, "I met him during a TV show and told him, 'I am fed up of people saying you are doing the song, why don't you do it?' and he agreed."
Isi Life Mein
A film had newcomers in it, but Salman Khan did this one for Sooraj Barjatya and his love for him.
Tell Me O Khuda
This one was to revive the career of Esha Deal, which again did not quite happen. The actor appeared in a song.
OMG: Oh My God
Salman Khan was seen narrating the storyline of Akshay Kumar's production, which also starred Paresh Rawal. Even though Salman did not appear in the film, it was his voice that actually did wonders and the movie was a hit.
Son Of Sardaar
Salman shares a good bond with Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn and it was for the two of them that he decided to have a special appearance in one of the songs of the film with these two actors.
Phata Poster Nikla Hero
Audiences were in splits when in the movie, Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D'Cruz ride in parallel to Salman Khan's car. The scene was hilarious and one of his best cameos. It was a Rajkumar Santoshi directorial.
Ishq In Paris
Just for the sake of her good friend, Preity Zinta, Salman did a dance appearance in the film with her. But the movie did not have much impact on the viewers and Salman's cameo too didn't help here.
Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan featured together in a single frame. Even though there were four newcomers in the film, it was Salman and Akshay who took all the limelight away in 'Yeh Fugly Fugly Kya Hai'.
Main Tera Hero
This David Dhawan directorial had Salman Khan's voice and not him in the movie. The actor gave voice of various Gods in the film, when Varun Dhawan talks to them.
