Salman Khan might reign at the box-office, but when it comes to awards, the actor always gets short shrift. He’s in the Rs. 100 crore club, has been in the Hindi film industry for more than two decades, has a huge fan following, but he hasn’t won a single award for Best Actor.

Aamir Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Amitabh Bachchan are just among the few Bollywood personalities who have received the Padma Shri. While Sallu is more known for his masala roles, he has given poignant performances in films like Tere Naam, Phir Milenge and others. So has the actor been ignored at awards at the national level as well? Is Salman’s performance being overlooked because of his brush with crime? Does Salman Khan actually deserve a Padma Shri?

  1. 1st of all, it is not true that Salman never got an award for ‘The Best Actor’; he got an Apasara award for The Best Actor in 2011 for Dabangg (2010), got a Star Screen Award and Max Stardust Award for The Best Actor in the same year for the same film Dabangg. He won Airtel Biggest Superstar Award (by Public voting) in 2011 and in 2012 he won the Max Stardust award for Best Actor. He won a Rajiv Gandhi National Award for The Best Actor in 2005 for his film Phir Milenge (2004). And this year he won DY Patel award (by Maharshtra Govt.) for excellency as a film actor and as a humanitarian/social worker. So, it is not correct to say that Salman never received an award.

    Again, u mentioned on 2 films name to show his acting capability. My question is what is good acting in your opinion? Only playing a serius character on screen is good acting? While every one knows that doing comedy is the most difficult art; Salman excelled in all kind of acting in his career; he started with his mega performance of a Romantic boy in Maine Pyar Kiya (1989) and continued till Hum Aapke Hai Kaun (1994); then he had done his 1st comedy film Andaz Apna Apna (1994) with genius Aamir Khan and had shown his talent in comedy too with many more great comedy films, but he has been doing all kind of films and keep showing his acting talent continuously in films like Hum Saath Saath Hai, Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai, Bandhan, Pyar Kiya Toh Drna Kya, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Hum Tumhare Hai Sanam, Tumko na Bhool Payenge, Tere Naam, Garv, Baghbaan, Mujhse Shadi Karogi, Lucky, Baabul, Wanted, London Dreams, Veer, Dabangg and Bodyguard.
