Salman Khan or Bhai as we know and love him is the biggest bollywood star.His name is enough to make any film superhit. His first film was Biwi Ho to Aisi but his first superhit was Maine Pyar Kiya(MPK). He was paired opposite Bhagyashree in MPK and movie made Salman an overnight heartthrob. The film was a massive hit and bagged 07 awards out of 13 nominations in filmfare. Since then there has been no looking back. His journey in bollywood is about to complete 30 years & these 30 years were full of ups & downs.
High end drama romances, court cases,convictions,all these were part of life for Salman Khan during these almost thirty years. In the initial phase of career,he gave a series of blockbusters like Saajan,Hum aapke Hain Kaun,Karan Arjun & Andaz Apna Apna. All these superhits were paired with few flops like love,Kurbaan & Suryavanshi. Late 90’s made him a superstar.
But early 2000’s can be considered as the worst phase of Salman’s life. Infamous relation with Aishwarya & drunk driving case against him led to downfall in both his personal & professional life. A lot of high voltage drama in front of press & washing dirty linen in public tarnished the image of Salman badly. The anger & violent side of Salman came to public view & his fan following reduced steeply.His court cases became part of his daily life. Over time he developed an image of Bad Boy.The professional life also took a hit,from 2002 to 2008,his career was mostly gloomy with very few hits & many flops.
Time changed yet again with 2009, the bad image started diminishing by charity & good deeds under the head of “Being Human”. Salman was brought to the forefront once again with “Wanted”.The movie was loved by kids & adults alike. This chance was grabbed by Salman & he rose to the levels of Maine Pyar Kiya yet again. The streak started and Salman got a big list of blockbusters in his kitty.The list of blockbusters is too long & includes Ready, Bodyguard,Dabang,Kick,Bajrangi Bhaijaan,Sultan etc. and it continues till date. The good times also came in personal life as well with acquittal from drunk driving case of 2002.
