Salman Khan is one star whose films are eagerly awaited every year. For Sallu fans throng the theatres during every release and ensure that their devotion to him is evident in the box office returns. Although his last film Tubelight failed to create the magic experienced by his other movies, the 50 plus-year-old star is always on the minds of his fans.
Salman has managed to stay relevant to his fans for more than three decades and they still can’t get enough of him. And then there is Bigg Boss every year where audiences get to see a real and entertaining Sallu Bhai every weekend. He has had many feathers in his cap in his professional career and his latest achievement has him ranked as the topmost Bollywood icon of 2017.
He has surpassed the Baadshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan who is thwarted to the second position. Akshay Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan appear in the 3rd and 4th positions respectively. Salman Khan received 18.3% votes in the annual youth survey that was conducted by Hindustan Times. Shah Rukh, on the other hand, received 15.3% votes as his recent films like Jab Harry Met Sejal and Raees failed to impress the audiences.
On the work front, Salman is currently shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai with Katrina Kaif and is leaving no stone unturned to make sure it enters the 100 crore club, much like his other releases. The other projects in the pipeline are sequels to his hit movies, Race 3, Kick 2, and Dabangg 3.
