In all, Salman’s films have made over 1100 crores in the past five years. That Salman’s Jai Ho was considered an average performer at the box office despite making over a 100 crores just goes on to show what kind of expectations ride on his shoulders.

He has mentioned, time and again, that he takes a generous share of profit percentage to ensure that funds for his foundation ‘Being Human’ come in. Salman has adjusted his fees recently for Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, to ease pressure on the film’s budgets.

With the forthcoming ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ set to release this Friday, expectations from the film’s business are sky high. Releasing on Eid, Salman’s box office draw is only expected to grow in momentum with this feel good film.
