While many people may hate, some others may be afraid of him, and some may be irritated by his gangster personality, there is no denying the fact that Salman Khan is, by a clear majority, beloved.
Many have wondered over the years: What exactly is it about him that appeals to such a huge fan base.
Well, the answer is pretty clear; acting and dancing skills aside, he is a kind-hearted person.
Over the years, not only has Salman Khan launched many an actors’ careers, but also breathed new life into the careers of actors who were fast fading into oblivion.
He may not be the actor that we love, but he’s definitely the human being we wish every person in the world would be.
On the birthday of this cherished personality, let’s take a look at some of the careers that Salman Khan has saved over the years…
After a long absence, Bobby Deol finally made it back into the film industry when Salman Khan offered him a meaty role in ‘Race 3’. The actor was last seen in Shreyas Talpade’s ‘Poster Boys’.
Katrina Kaif has always had a special spot in Salman Khan’s heart. Even when abandoned by her for Ranbir Kapoor, Salman Khan not only embraced her with open arms and kindly gave her a role in Tiger Zinda Hai. It’s not beyond the line to say that the move helped Kaif to re-establish herself in showbiz.
Armaan Kohli was almost lost to the 90s, when he made a splashbang at ‘Bigg Boss’ hosted by Salman Khan and became a household name. He was later cast in a supporting role in Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, a movie role that he did after 11 years.
Who doesn’t remember Govinda and Salman’s “D’you Wanna Partner, O Partner”. This was one career revival that we really were happy about. Adapted from the Hollywood Film ‘Hitch’, Salman and Govinda’s ‘Partner’ was a huge success.
Neil Nitin Mukesh
Inspite of being a greta actor, Neil Nitin Mukesh never really garnered the kind of acclaim that he deserved. He has admitted that being cast as Salman’s stepbrother in Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ back in 2015.
Maybe people’s good wishes for this hunk is the secret to his long life!!!
