Nobody in Bollywood binds a fandom utterly like Salman Khan. Not usually have his fans given him a demi-god kind of standing though even his contemporaries brave not cranky his path. What other explain could clear a fact that all his offerings in a past few years have been means to secure a solo recover during a theatres? Little did one know in 1989 when Salman seemed as a coyish Prem for a initial time in Maine Pyar Kiya, that there will come a time when this Khan of ours will turn THE many bankable actor of a industry.
But that is usually half a story. Controversies and Salman have also always left palm in hand. After all, this is not a initial time a Tiger Zinda Hai actor is spending time sealed in prison. From allegedly using over a chairman sleeping on a Mumbai cement to allegedly badgering one of a many conjectural womanlike actresses of his time, Salman has had some-more than his satisfactory share of controversies. Here’s a brief timeline.
Salman’s brushes with a law
The inhuman night of Oct 1, 1998, is substantially where it all started. Besides a stream blackbucks poaching box for that Salman is being hold in a Jodhpur Central Jail, there were dual other cases involving a poaching of chinkaras and deer for that Salman was found trusting by a court. There was also a fourth box where Salman was found in possession of lapsed arms, though again, he was acquitted.
Khan also infamously spent some time in a Mumbai jail for a 2002 strike and run box when his white Toyota Land Cruiser allegedly crashed into a American Express Bakery during Hill Road in Bandra, murdering one chairman and injuring 4 others. Then too, a hearing justice had found him guilty and awarded 5 years of seizure though he was after clear by a High justice on a drift that his motorist was doing a wheels.
His barbarous fights
While cases have piled adult opposite Salman in courts, his prominence has spilled over in his personal life too. In 2002, Salman was even indicted of “emotionally, physically and verbally” badgering his then-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Rai has even oral about a occurrence in a series of her interviews. “After we pennyless up, he would call me and speak rubbish. He also suspected me of carrying affairs with my co-stars. Salman hounded me and caused earthy injuries to himself when we refused to take his calls,” she pronounced in an talk to TOI.
Another actor who came underneath a radar of Salman is Vivek Oberoi. Vivek, who was reportedly in a attribute with Salman’s ex-girlfriend Aishwarya during that time, indicted Salman of drunkenly job him 41 times in a night and even melancholy to kill him. This was suggested by Vivek himself in a 2003 press conference.
On a other hand, his quarrel with Shah Rukh Khan is substantially one of a longest cold wars Bollywood has seen. Salman roughly came to blows when Shah Rukh Khan done an inapt criticism about Salman during his then-girlfriend Katrina Kaif’s 2008 birthday bash. He was even concerned in a quarrel with thespian Arijit Singh when a latter done fun of his bad hosting skills during an endowment function. Salman took matters so out of suit that even today, he doesn’t let a thespian sing any of a songs in his films.
Controversies aside, Salman is still box-office king
But notwithstanding all his brushes with a law and otherwise, his fanbase has never been affected. His films have turn some-more or less, a materialisation in a Hindi film industry. One demeanour during a box bureau opening of his Bollywood outings will sufficient to infer how his stardom has remained intact. Be it Tiger Zinda Hai, Tubelight, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, or Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, nothing of Salman’s films have been means to make it to a good books of a critics. But all of them have set a money registers toll like never before.
A demeanour during their box bureau collections: Tiger Zinda Hai – Rs 339.16 crore, Tubelight – Rs 119.26 crore, Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Rs 320.34 crore, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – Rs 210.16 crore, Kick – Rs 231.85 crore and a list goes on. As can be really good seen, raking in a few hundred crores is not a outrageous attainment for Salman Khan. Only when his film is generally bad, does it stay only past a Rs 100 crore (case in point: Tubelight). With his prolongation try Salman Khan Films, a actor is now even obliged for rising a series of actors in a industry.
While one can't fathom what accurately constitutes his interest in a minds of his fans, one thing is for sure, that with a power of 30 years and counting in a industry, Salman is here to say. It is only a matter of days when he will get bailed out again and things will go behind to being how they were. A few charitable causes and charities perplexing to infer his ‘Being Human’ness later, Bollywood will have another one of Bhai’s record-breaking blockbuster to supplement to a list.
