Tribute: 25 glorious years of Salman Khan!

Blockbuster Khan

From 1988 to 2013, it has been glorious twenty-five years in Bollywood for super-duper star Salman Khan. Through this silver jubilee, the blockbuster Khan has seen many ups and downs, but his swagger, style, humour, and confidence hasn’t flagged one bit.

When the handsome but decidedly lean son of the famed scriptwriter Salim Khan appeared in a supporting role in the 1988 movie Biwi Ho Toh Aisi (which released on August 22 that year), not many would have bet on him to become a superstar of Hindi cinema one day. Fortune swung his way the very next year, in 1989, when director Sooraj Barjatya’s Maine Pyar Kiya became a runaway hit and acquired a cult status in the annals of Bollywood romances. Salman Khan had arrived. He clinched a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut but didn’t follow it up with another one for a good long six years. Reason? A slew of sub-standard movies.

Sooraj Barjatya gave Salman another solo blockbuster with Hum Aapke Hai Koun…! in 1994, cementing his position as a quintessential romantic hero.

But Salman wasn’t to be straitjacketed in a particular image. He proved his mettle at comedy and action over the years.

Those who sniffed at him for being a wooden actor had to chew their words after Sanjay Leela Bhansali extracted from Salman a performance to leave the audiences moist eyed in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.

A number of comedy films followed, so did a bunch of controversies and legal wrangles. Salman acquired the reputation of a spoilt brat. His relationship with Aishwarya Rai ended on a very sour note. And at one time it looked like Salman’s charm and aura would fizzle out like that of a shooting star.

But then came the big turnaround. Good fortune rallied and success came his way again. One after another 100 crore blockbusters followed and today Salman Khan is the most bankable superstar in Hindi film industry.

ApunKaChoice takes you on a trip through the superstar’s glorious years.
