Salman Bhai! This evergreen actor, who is still one of Bollywood’s desirable bachelors, has been ruling the roost despite stunning failures and a tumultuous personal life. But, thanks to his adoring followers and the film industry, our beloved Bhai’s popularity has remained unaffected. Personally, I am not a fan of Salman. But his unwavering radiance never fails to enchant me. His hurried interviews and nonchalant repartees pale in comparison to the commanding screen presence he commands whenever he appears.
Have a look at his 8 best performances till date. In this article, we will explore some of the best performances of Salman Khan.
1. Maine Pyar kiya
This was his debut movie and he became an instant sensation. This movie was a super hit during the period when love stories in Bollywood were somehow or the other swamped by violent action movies. This movie entails the love story of a sweet, innocent and wealthy boy and a poor girl. This movie is still imprinted in our minds. Salman’s character as Prem the innocent lover boy and a beautiful and adorable match Suman, played by Bhagyashree. This movie is still one of best performances of Salman khan.
2. Andaz Apna Apna
Salman Khan and Aamir Khan’s chemistry in Andaz Apna Apna was remarkable, and Salman Khan’s reply as ‘ooi ma’ became a trend, and we adored this character from Salman.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who makes sure to set out the astonishing performance by his actors. In this movie as well, Salman played the role of a charming lover boy. In the movie the gentle chemistry between Salman and Manisha Koirala left the audience mesmerized. This Actor proved that he can turn from a muscular man who looks aggressive to a man who is goofy. Indeed, he is a multi-talented actor.
4. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
Mr. Khan again worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and this time he portrayed one of the most sad and heartbreaking characters of his career. The movie covers a love story between Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.They both played a perfect couple role in the movie and their chemistry was indeed commendable. This movie left the audience crazy about Salman.
5. Mujhse Shaadi Karogi
This lighthearted entertainer directed by comedy maestro David Dhawan featured Salman trapped in a love triangle and unable to attract his sweetheart every time due to temperament difficulties. Dhawan employed Salman effectively in this film, making him the misunderstood person to complement his off-screen image. And with a superb Akshay Kumar as his adversary, who was constantly at odds with Salman, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi was a resounding success. Salman was in fine form throughout, bringing out his frailties flawlessly with comedy. We were rooting for him to get his sweetheart, and he didn’t disappoint.
6. Bajrangi Bhaijaan
In terms of plot, this is Salman Khan’s best film. At the 63rd National Film Awards, the film won the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment. In the 61st Filmfare Awards, the film was nominated for Best Film and Best Actor, among other awards, and won the Filmfare Award for Best Story. One of the highest-grossing Indian films of all time, it is also maybe Salman Khan’s greatest film to date. His portrayal of an honest follower of Lord Hanuman is just endearing.
Salman played as a wrestling champion was a surprise for nobody but the one who attains his strength for his sport from his love story was truly astonishing. The actor was completely authentic with no artifice in his role, and was compelling in the film’s multiple emotional laden situations where he falters endlessly but picks him up again to give life another try.
8. Tere Naam
This sad love story was released at a time when Salman himself was embroiled in personal difficulties, yet the film blazed to popularity thanks to captivating performances and the actor’s unforgettable hair style, which is still legendary among his die hard admirers. Tere Naam was a disastrous turnaround for Salman in a wholly revelatory part, maybe in his whole career, and is regarded one of those films that highlighted his acting abilities.
Finally, to conclude I can say that no doubt, Salman is one of those actors who is legendary and will be loved by the audience in every way. Despite being a great actorin reel life even after attaining so much name and fame, in real life as well he is so humble and grounded as a person. His fans love his ‘being human’ version.
