Salman Khan made his debut in Biwi Ho To Aisi (1988) in which he played a supporting role. He made his debut in lead role in Sooraj Barjatva’s romantic family drama movie Maine Pyar Kiya for which he won Filmare Best Male Debut Award & was also nominated for Filmfare Best Actor Award. Baaghi: A Rebel for Love (1990), in which he starred opposite southern actress, Nagma, was a major box-office success. In 1991, Salman gave a hat trick with Patthar Ke Phool, Sanam Bewafa & Saajan. The next couple of years were quiet unsuccessful for Salman. Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! (1994) directed by Sooraj Barjatya and co-starring Madhuri Dixit was the most successful film of the year. Salman’s role in Andaz Apna Apna (1994) was well received and praised. Rakesh Roshan’s blockbuster Karan Arjun (1995) cemented his success.
Salman then went on to act in a number of films including Bhansali’s directional debut Khamoshi: The Musical (1996), Judwaa (1997), Auzaar (1997), Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya (1998), Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai (1998), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998). All the films did pretty well at the box-office. His cameo in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai won him the Filmfare award for Best Supporting Actor.
1999 was a fruitful year for Salman as it churned out three major successful films – Hum Saath-Saath Hain, Biwi No. 1 and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, the latter getting him a Filmfare Best Actor’s nomination.
In 2000, he starred in Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke and Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam. The movies were moderately successful at the box-office. Salman’s role in Tere Naam (2003) got him critical acclamation and the movie was a box-office success. This successful run continued with Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2007) & No Entry (2005). Salaam-e-Ishq (2007) failed at the box office. However, Partner (2008) was a hit.
Wanted (2009) remains one of Salman’s blockbuster hits. But Main Aur Mrs. Khanna & London Dreams released in the same year did not do so well. And then Dabangg (2010) happened! The movie broke all box-office records, thus becoming the second highest grossing Indian movie of all time. Salman received the Star Screen Best Actor Award for the movie and was nominated for Filmfare Best Actor Award as well.
Salman’s Ready and Bodyguard were among the biggest hits of 2011. Coming to 2012, Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer Ek Tha Tiger became a huge hit among the masses, what with the film raking in 198 crores at the domestic box office. Later, Khan also starred in Dabangg 2, which was directed by his brother Arbaaz Khan. Though the film’s songs and dialogues became a hit, the film couldn’t garner much popularity compared to its prequel.
After a long break of almost 2 years, Khan had a release directly in 2014’s January – with brother Sohail Khan’s directorial Jai Ho. However, it wasn’t a worth waiting as the film bombed at the Box Office.
But, Bhai came with a bang on Eid 2014 with a kickass ‘Kick‘, directed by Sajid Nadiadwala. Kick made huge business worldwide and the songs, dialogues, action – everything became a rage among Khan’s fans!
Meanwhile, Salman also made his Marathi debut with Lai Bhaari, wherein the actor made a small appearance and muttered some Marathi dialogues with quite an ease.
