Is Salman Khan the Godfather of Bollywood?

Amitabh Bachchan is fondly referred to as the Shahenshah of Bollywood. Shahrukh Khan is called the Baadshah. Now we won’t be surprised if Salman Khan is bestowed with the title of Godfather!

Salman Khan has always been considered Bollywood’s Good Samaritan among few others. Millions of his fans and well-wishers including his actor friends, who have been closely associated with the generous and large-hearted Khan for years, don’t call him bhai for nothing! After all, our beloved Sallu has encouraged, supported and introduced several Bollywood aspirants to excel in their respective areas of passion and helped them achieve a position where they can stand proudly today.

Not to forget composers like Himesh Reshammiya and Sajid-Wajid who till date can’t stop thanking the Dabangg star for not only uplifting their careers by providing them major breaks in his films, but also giving the much required boost to their future projects. For that matter, even Sanjay Leela Bhansali was a nobody before his debut film Khamoshi, when Salman agreed to do the movie and formed a successful association with the filmmaker which resulted in yet another musical blockbuster – Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Remember how Govinda was practically forgotten by our industry, and was written off by the critics and the media? However, Sallu saved the day by giving the actor a role tailor-made for him in Partner and the rest, as they say, is history.

Among the younger generation, we know how he has helped actors like Sneha Ullal, Zarine Khan, Mahek Chahal and Hazel Keech…but it’s a different matter than none of them have managed to make it big, and Sallu definitely can’t be blamed for that. But then there are names like Sonakshi Sinha and Arjun Kapoor who went on to carve a niche for themselves and didn’t let Salman down. He has also been a catalyst and an inspiration for some B-town hunks to get into perfect shape and be tagged as having the best hot-bods – from the Greek God Hrithik Roshan to the young lad Arjun Kapoor.

Recently, the generous Khan came to the rescue of one of his best buddies – Sonu Sood, who’s currently recuperating in a Mumbai hospital after suffering multiple fractures while playing for a Celebrity Cricket League match in Dubai last week. It’s learnt that Sonu called up producers whose films he was committed to shoot in the coming months and offered to return the signing amounts simply because he didn’t want any of them to wait for him and bear the losses. When the Mental star learnt of this, he decided to offer Sonu his role in the Hindi remake of Mahesh Manjrekar’s 2010 hit Marathi movie Shikshanachya Aaicha Gho that he had been planning with Mahesh since almost two years now. Salman has decided to mentor his longtime loyal bodyguard Shera’s son as well. And, the list goes on…

Well, what more can we say! Long live Salman – the Godfather of Bollywood!Subscribe to me on YouTube

    • sarifa

      R U Nuts? SRK films dropped to No 7 way below Salman, Akshay & Hrithik – Salman Khan 2 Films were the highest in BW last year and 6 hits in five yrs SRK has never done this in his life the only other was Big B. In order for SRK last film to make some headway he was paid an enormous sum to kiss Kat and this was used to promote the film. SRK is a self made king but Bollywood and Salman Khan fans crowned him the King. He never made himself king neither did he spend a fortune in bribes to make himself king.

      • pooja

        salman is not even close to god father of Bollywood, that must be some crap of joke. i do not know why Bollywood life wasting there time on him there are important superstars we want to see like srk and Kat. shahrukh is the king of Bollywood no matter what, and about the movie grossing you should see the Wikipedia because there is no way hrithik movie would beat srk because his movies are not really interesting to see!!!!!!!!! but you know keep saying salman is the best to make yourself feel better, the truth is srk rules Bollywood. i am really sorry fans but srk is no 1. koi bi use nehi ler sekta or take his place.

          According to you, SRK might “rule” Bollywood (actually he doesn’t), but Salman Khan is TRULY the Godfather & Salman literally OWNS Bollywood.
          He has helped countless actors & friends. He is known for going out of the way to helping his friends.
          I doubt you know this infamous fact, but Salman is the one who had a big hand in helping SRK debut in films. Salman helped SRK a lot in his early days, & now that SRK’s got a little fame, he thinks he’s a better man than Salman.

          Salman Khan is a unique actor too, his films don’t require a great story (something SRK Always needs), he just pours his heart into it & he nearly always comes out a Hit.
          Salman also broke the record with his Ek Tha Tiger film, which crossed 100 Crore mark in just 5 days!!
          He also doesn’t give a damn about speaking “politically” & “diplomatically”.

          I know what you’re thinking, that I’m a “fanboy”, no I’m not. I just see all the raw facts & judge for myself. And I feel it’s downright wrong when people put down a Gold-hearted person just to because they’re a “fanboy”/”fangirl” of another person.

    • SPIDERMAN

      FIRST U LIVE UPTO 100 YEARS. WHICH STARDOM U TALKING ABOUT?
      WHO REMEMBERS KISHORE KUMAR, GURU DUTT, BALRAJ SAHANI. THESE WERE THE BORN STARS. U TALKING ABOUT SRK (BANDAR) HE’S A BLACK SPOT FOR AN ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY. FIRST TEACH HIM TO MAKE FRIENDS OUT OF MONETARY BENEFITS & PERSONAL IMPORTANCE.

    @ Superman, Pooja, Jatin Jain and Rajib

    Firstly, use your keyboards properly as your punctuation and grammar is appalling.

    Secondly, if you’re so for SRK then give us proof for what he has accomplished for Bollywood.

    You’re ostracizing Salman Khan because you all merely have no knowledge of his impact on Bollywood. The things mentioned above is not even close to half of what he has done for others. Such as those that were in need, homeless or has been having to face saddening issues. As well as his big heart for his fans across the world.

    Please, get your facts right.

    And thank you for those that are supporting Salman Khan, you all are blessed with wonderful hearts.

    Hmm Lallu Monkey is surely God Father for true But not God Father of Bollywood , But God father of Criminals, The one and only Criminal in Bollywood, Those who saying he is Being Human and haveing a Golden Heart, Just one question to them Why the hell is he Keep skipping the Court hearings (by saying silly reasons like his Birthday Party etc etc). on his Murder case If he is so generous Why dont he accept the hearing of his Imprisonment.And why he always make a Mockery of King khan and Ranbir nowadayds That itself show how cheap this Monkey criminal Is. And by simply giveing chances to new actors wont make him a Godfather or a Better Actor,Its a proven fact that laallu Monkey dont know the basics of Acting, Even he himslef agress that why caant his Bloody Fans accept the fact that Srk and Amir r better actors than Lallu Monkey.God Father My Foot.Thoooo. he is just a Criminal or else A S*** Bag , toilet paper thaat much is lallu Monkeys range.

    • Kiran

      See fellow it is Salman Khan who launched Ranbir by doing a guest role in Saawariya and it is Salman Khan who helped Shahrukh Khan and gave shelter in his house and helped SRK in his early days while entering Bollywood. They owe their film lives to “Salman Khan” These 2 dogs (Ranbir and SRK) they feel themselves King, but Salman never said that although he could have. According to your court hearings, he could have paid for the court like other politicians to escape from the crime, but he is not doing why he want court to make its judgement… If you do not know about Salman Khan dont speak rubbish.

    Nower days every star is making a remake film even Shahrukh Khan, but they are not getting the hit films like Salman Khan. Also, nower days no other star should be compared to Salman Khan because other stars does not deserve at least half of his value including SRK. Nobody in Bollywood can reach to heights at the present generation. Salman Khan is the Godfather of Bollywood and King of Bollywood.
