Salman Khan. Take a name and an intimidating picture of a macho ‘Bhai’ pops in your mind. And because not so? For a final decade, Salman Bhai (as he is fondly addressed by fans) has been delivering strike after strike formed on only one regulation — a materialisation called Salman Khan. Save a few ifs and buts in his final 10 films, Salman’s purpose has been flattering most unchanging with characters that possess adult to Bhai’s glamour on screen. Whether we demeanour during his travel mafiosi Radhe in Wanted, a badass officer Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg or a RAW representative Tiger in Ek Tha Tiger, a star around changes though it still revolves around a dear Bhaijaan.

But things were not always a same. Before Wanted happened in 2009, Salman was a resplendent star of regretful dramas and unmitigated comedies. He essayed his initial lead purpose in Maine Pyaar Kiya as Prem and afterwards followed an assault of films featuring a opposite avatars of Prems.

“People go to watch my films during festivals. They dress up, hearten and whistle. we have some other bond with my audience. They only don’t wish to see me cry on screen,” quipped Salman in an talk to indianexpress.com earlier. But if law be told, even a non-Bhai fan like me would adore for Salman to go behind to his aged days, strew a rip or dual on screen, be convincing, be PREM, not in a Suraj Barjatya Prem Ratan Dhan Payo kind of way, though in a Andaz Apna Apna and Judwaa kind of way. Today on Salman Khan’s 52nd birthday, we demeanour during 5 of his improved performances. Rankings are in no sold order.

Maine Pyaar Kiya

28 years ago, when Maine Pyaar Kiya happened, it altered a life of 3 people — Salman, Bhagyashree and Sooraj Barjatya. Their entrance film was not only a top grossing film of a year though also one of a biggest hits of a decade. From his honeyed chemistry with Suman to his critical onslaught in courtship her father Karan (Aloknath), Salman’s act as a regretful chocolate child Prem left a symbol in a hearts of many. One can never know a loyal mutation Bhai has left by though examination Maine Pyar Kiya.

Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!

1994’s biggest family hostess Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! was again a Sooraj Barjatya directorial featuring Salman Khan. This time, Prem was a finish family man, prepared to scapegoat all including a adore of his life for them. Initially, a film was approaching to be a wave overdue to a large series of songs though it went to turn one of a renouned 90s classics earning large bucks during a box office.

As mentioned earlier, a Salman of a 90s was also a star of unmitigated Bollywood comedies. And when he was during it, a audiences were left in splits with his humorous antics. His comic timing was ideal and his discourse smoothness chucklesome. David Dhawan’s Judwaa (1997) is one such comic classic. It even featured Salman in a double purpose — initial as Prem, second as Raja. Though today’s dignified military would find some of a scenes in a film flattering disturbing, a abounding instances of trusting humour does torment a humorous bones.

Phir Milenge

Revathy’s 2004 film Phir Milenge was one of a singular films that done fans see Salman Khan in a new light. He plays a exposed HIV studious Rohit with an atmosphere of self-assurance and resignation. Though his impression is a small underwritten and critics were heedful of a fact that Salman doesn’t demeanour as svelte as a final theatre HIV studious would demeanour like, Salman’s opening is moving.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Bajrangi Bhaijaan is one of Salman Khan’s singular cinema this decade where he plays a comparatively middle-aged down and practical impression named Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi. Another lovely underline of this Kabir Khan crack is a child actor Harshaali Malhotra. For once, an actor is given plenty shade participation alongside Salman and if we omit a thespian exaggerations, Bajrangi creates for a decent watch.
