Salman lagging among the Khans

Salman Khan Among Bollywood's Khan troika, Salman Khan is the one lagging behind the others.

At 43 years of age, it takes more than just looks to maintain one's place in showbiz. And Salman, who was at one time voted seventh best looking man in the world, is no longer the pin-up boy he used to be. The charming face of yore has today given way to baggy eyes and cosmetic hair which any discerning viewer can catch in close up shots of the actor.

But that shouldn't concern the star as his contemporaries like Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan , too, have aged like him. What should and probably does concern Salman is his plummeting career.

Aamir, who is also 43, is turning out to be quite a revelation for his fans. Not only has Aamir emerged as one of the most talented directors in the industry with his first film Taare Zameen Par , he also had the guts to develop eight pack abs for Ghajini and put to shame the other stars who pride in their brawns.

Shahrukh, on the other hand, may not be in his best phase but still commands a pull at the theatres. His last release Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi did fairly well and his home production Billu Barber is also expected to mint moolah at box office.

Nothing so heartening can be said of Salman, though. All his four releases of the last year - God Tussi Great Ho , Hello , Heroes and the much-hyped Yuvvraaj - bombed on the trot. Even his first look of Veer has been a damp squib. Neither does Salman have the bulging muscles to rival Aamir's, nor does he look enigmatic enough to rouse curiosity. In fact, Salman himself has reportedly decided to present another first-look of 'Veer'.

Perhaps the actor is aware that if he doesn't reinvent self soon, it won't be long when he'd be the first to be knocked off his pedestal among the Khan troika.
