He is the Most Eligible Bachelor of India!
He is the 'Bhai'!
He is 'Being Human'!
He is the Baap of Bollywood!
Of course, I'm talking about the one and only, Salman Khan. He is one of those Bollywood actors who has a huge fan following despite the number of controversies he has been involved in.
He has been called over-possessive by his ex-girlfriends but is also thought of as a caring person. He has been involved in a hit-and-run case under the influence of alcohol but is still looked upon as God by his fans. He was involved in a case of blackbuck poaching but was acquitted. Did you know all his movies that were released after 2010 have grossed over 100 crores at the box office?
So what exactly does the public think about Salman Khan? What better way to know than asking them? That is exactly what we did. We asked Indians (#IndiaKaPulse), what was the first thing that came to their mind when they think of Sallu Bhai.
Here is what India has to say:
Salman Khan is said to have helped a lot of stars with their careers and is also a mentor to many. Some examples are Himesh Reshammiya, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and Sajid-Wajid.
Was the launch of 'Being Human' a strategy or guilt trip? He has been involved in a number of cases and controversies since 1998.
The hit-and-run case from back in 2002 which killed the people sleeping on the footpath, has gained a lot of negative attention from the public.
He donates a maximum of his earnings. It was also claimed that he only uses 10% of his earnings for himself.
Talking about the law, he has faced charges for violations of the Arms Act, Blackbuck hunting case and a hit-and-run case as well.
He has helped a lot of people and actors whenever they were in crisis. Govinda, Sushmita Sen, and Dia Mirza are some of the examples.
He was also accused by Aishwarya Rai of harassment after they stopped dating.
He has often mentioned in his interviews that he is not interested in awards and the box office collection.
Since the hit-and-run case, he has been trolled constantly about his driving.
Since 2010, all of his movies have grossed over 100 crores. Be it Dabangg or Bajrangi Bhaijaan or Sultan, almost all of his movies are a blockbuster hit.
As most of the relationships, especially the ones with Aishwarya Rai or Katrina Kaif, did not work out, he is still unmarried and is often given the title of the 'Most Eligible Bachelor' in India.
Well, that is some reputation he's earned.
Salman Khan has been the host of the famous TV show, Bigg Boss for seven years, the longest anybody has ever been.
Some people have a very strong opinion of him. They think that he is a lawbreaker.
