Salman Khan, born as Abdul Rashid Salim Salman Khan, is all set to cross 25 years in Indian Cinema this week as his debut film 'Biwi Ho To Aisi' released on 26th August 1988. Though Salman debuted in 'Biwi Ho To Aisi', the first role of his that gained him recognition, and won him the plush 'Filmfare Debut Award' was 'Maine Pyaar Kiya'. And since then, there was no looking back, 25 Years later, we can now look back at the legacy that is Salman Khan.

BlockBuster Khan

While Maine Pyaar Kiya was one of the highest grossing films of its time, Salmans career has been full of hits over the years, and the lull he faced from 2005-2009, did no damage, nor stopped him from owning the 100 crore club. The most iconic of his hits are 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun', 'Karan Arjun', 'Andaz Apna Apna' ' Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya', 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' , 'Biwi no1' ,'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam', 'Mujshe Shaadi Karoge', 'No Entry', 'Wanted', 'Ek Tha Tiger', 'Bodyguard' and 'Ready'.

Television

Salman Khan has also been a succesful Television host, by hosting 'Dus Ka Dum' and Big Boss from seasons 4- 7.

Being Human

Though many celebrities don't use their power for any good, Salman Khan opened up an NGO called 'Being Human' that supports the underpriveleged. The Foundation has two focus areas: Education and Healthcare. He also opened up divisions like Being Human Film Productions, which helps to Fund Being Human. He has also produced the acclaimed and succesful 'Chillar Party'

Personal Life

Though Salman has never married he has been linked to a bevy of beauties, with the significant relationships being Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Somy Ali and Katrina Kaif. The list of people has been linked to, however remains innumerable. Khan has remained close to his family - which includes Arbaaz & Malaika Arora Khan, Sohail Khan, Salim Khan, Alvira and Arpita Khan and iconic stepmother, Helen.

Noteable performances

Though Salman has been accused on many occasions of not being able to act, his early career had several performances that won him accolades. His performances in 'Maine Pyaar Kiya' and 'Kuch Kuch Hota' have won him awards for acting, and he has received praise for his roles in 'Karan Arjun' , 'jeet', Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kiya, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Tere Naam, and the more recent 'Ek Tha Tiger'.

Special Appearances

Salman has made many noteable cameos over the years, his most memorable of which remains to be 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', , however he has never been afraid to appear in a film in the name of friendship, and has done several appearances and cameos in films like ' Baghban', 'Phir Milenge', 'Saawariya', 'Om Shanti Om' & 'Ishqk in Paris'.

The Fitness Freak & shirtless phenomenon

Salman has noteably been one of the few actors to maintain his body over the span of his career, which has resulted in popular and now regular feature in his films - 'the shirtless shot'. Khan has also advised several youngsters like Sonakshi Sinha and Arjun Kapoor to get into shape and debut.

Let the Haters hate.....that's all they can do from the sidelines. Hope Salman has another 25 years on top.

@ cursednbroken... "I used the title because that was the hashtag his fans have been trending on twitter :)"
----> Oh, OK I see... well that was very generous of them. :)

@ "Who cares about the title....no actor/actress can have a blockbuster career."
----> I guess the fans who trended the title on twitter must care, or they wouldn't have trended it. But I agree with you, no actor/actress can have a blockbuster career. Everyone has highs and lows.

Anonymous's picture

Who cares about the title....no actor/actress can have a blockbuster career. It is a big accomplishment to be the top layer of the industry even after 25 years. He is a legend respect that, if you can't stop visiting his articles, why do people have to be such haters.

cursednbroken's picture

True, the title is quite misleading. He had success early on, had a looooong period of flops, and only just regained standing in the industry when he started doing remakes of South Indian movies.

@He hasn't been blockbuster for 25 years, I remember the time when he was called flop actor and nobody was interested in him. Dabangg saved him and now he's praised by all. It's nice how he survived through highs and lows. Personally I don't like him both as actor and human being.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
with that logic, no single actor is blockbuster, since they all have highs and lows. Not many people can say they have been in the industry for 25 years and been on that top layer throughout it. You forgot a little movie called "Wanted" before Dabangg and before that "Partner". Even when the guy is celebrating a big accomplishment like this, people have to be Haters, very pathetic.

Salman a Legend for sure, whether you are a fan or not, can't deny his stardom. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, still my favorite film, whatever their personal equation may be now. Salman and Aish, truly created a extraordinary piece of work.

He's one of the most beautiful man I've ever seen. And an awesome actor too. Love his work, it's not easy to do what he does.

It's so nice seeing a post on Salman that doesn't have a negative spin, thank you. 25 years later, he's still so lovable, still so good looking and still such a huge star. People who say he can't act never cease to amaze me. Andaz Apna Apna, MPK, HDDCS, Khamoshi, Tere Naam, Kyun Ki, Judwaa, Phir Milenge, Jaan E Mann, Dabangg- check them out. Have always loved his pairing with Rani. Fave films are Tere Naam, Kyun Ki, CCCC, KPNHJ, JEM, Dabangg, Partner, MPK and Baabul.
Utterly adore him for BH and all his charity work. But the best thing about him is his razor sharp wit and straight to your face attitude. There's no star like him. And genuinely don't think there ever will be.

I love this post. He's also the only actor to have the highest grossing film of the year 9 times and has the most All Time Blockbusters. And I think he's greatest achievement will always be Being Human. That was what made me a fan.
____________________________________
Completely agree with you although Hum apke hai koun and maine pyar kiya made me a fan. his so called lull period wasnt that lull actually, partner was in 2007 and it was a super hit, and his other movies before taht can be thanked to his so called friends lol but damn (imo) this guy is the most attractive guy ive ever seen.

I think he's a cool guy but he CANNOT act. Is there a film where he has really showed any acting skills? He plays it safe in every film - plays the same type of character every time. Have we ever seen him experiment or do a complex film? Nope but if this method has worked and still works, good for him.

Also, salman khan is the most favoured actor in tv shows as well. Whether tv actress or actor like him, immitate him or wear his iconic bracelet. It's amazing that he has the most fan following in Indian tv shows as well. As well any new foreign girls, actresses, dancers, journalist or beauty pageants That visit India all mention of being fond of handsome Salman khan and would love to work with him. Like Lauren from jhalak dikh laja.

Also add:

Salman as Godfather. As I have mentioned so many time he has helped many people in the world but also in bollywood from ash, katrina, sajid-wajid, himesh reshamya, sonakshi, Hrithik, argon kapoor, Sanjay leela bhansali and many more....

Salman is the first and only bollywood actor who has been twice mentioned in people magazines hottest men in the world list! He was 7th and 5th position.

His entry in Kuch Kuch made that movie for me and I wouldn't really call it a cameo. Like him onscreen, love him offscreen. I like pretty much every actor, I don't have favourites, but Being Human put him in a whole new level as a person for me. Admire him a lot for what he's done and how many people he's helped. He's raised so much awareness and his fans help spread that, which is good slap for people who say that celebs should be private about charity. If it can influence so many, I say do it in full view. And this is a really good post.

Anonymous's picture

I admire him a lot for his charity work & big heart. Out of his movies I love Dabangg, Tere Naam, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, Andaz Apna Apna, Khamoshi, Partner and Maine Pyar Kiya the most.

salman entrance in KKHH is what I call an ATBB entrance,the best ever

BeingAwesome's picture

Wow, 25 years!! And he's still so handsome & awesome. I love his films but I think it's Being Human that I'm going remember him for the most. I live in London and I remember whenever we did charity events at school, people would always nominate Being Human as the charity we wanted to give the money to although it always lost out to something like Cancer Research. Just recently I read about his work at a cancer hospital & how he finances it and how much the kids love him.
