Undoubtedly, Salman Khan is the emperor of the Indian box office. Not something to boast about, but even his mediocre films have managed to cross the 100 crore mark like a cakewalk. All such miracles have happened in the post-Dabangg era and at present, he’s the biggest crowd-puller of Bollywood.
But what was Salman Khan’s status before Dabangg era? Well, in today’s piece we’ll be talking about the same. Salman hasn’t witnessed a single clash in his revamped box office run. But before Dabangg, the actor struggled like no one else. In fact, he never won in a single clash he faced at the ticket windows.
Today, we’ll be purely talking on the basis of box office verdicts and trust us, there are no intentions of hurting Salman Khan fans. We’ll be taking a look at the actor’s clashes of the last two decades. Shockingly, he hasn’t delivered a single successful film in all the clashes.
