The eternal bachelor of B-town has for quite sometime now had a date with his fans on the festival of Eid
Salman Khan returns to his favourite day with yet another treat for his fans after a year’s gap with Kick! Most Bollywood actors have a date fetish, be it Aamir Khan or then Shah Rukh Khan. While Salman never disappoints his fans on Eid, except last year when he didn’t have a single release. The P.K hero and Happy New Year actor have always stuck to Christmas and Diwali dates respectively. Here’s a look at Sallu miyaan‘s Eid dairy and how his fans have returned their favourite star his Eidi with a box office hit each time. Will Kick too one of those lucky Eid movie? Well, here take a look at the Dabangg hero’s Eid connection…
Kick – 2014: Sajid Nadiadwala couldn’t have chosen a better date to make his debut as director with Salman as the lead. With his this year’s first release Jai Ho not doing wonders at the box office, SK returns to his lucky release day this year. The Bigg Boss host entertained us last year with his stint on small screen, last year his Eid date was however taken over by arch rival Shah Rukh Khan, who got cash registers ringing at the box office with his Rohit Shetty film Chennai Express. So, this year’s Eid is not just a comeback for Salman, but a treat to his die-hard fans. Also after a gap of two years Salman reclaims his favourite day.
Bodyguard – 2011: Salman’s portrayal of Lovely Singh and his unusual romantic story with Kareena Kapoor didn’t just expand his fan base. This movie also added numbers to his box office collection figure, but marked hit hat-trick for three consecutive years. This was one of the movies that re-established that Salman was the ultimate hero of the masses
Dabangg – 2010: Debutant director Abhinav Kashyap couldn’t have asked for a bigger launch in Bollywood. Though the Khans and Anurag Kashyap’s younger brother are no longer in talking terms. His film’s title has now become one of Salman Khan’s synonyms. Dabangg not only gave Sallu a new title, but also brought him back as the Numero Uno star of Bollywood!
Wanted – 2009: It’s only fair to admit that Parbhu Dheva’s Wanted resurrected Salman Khan’s stature in tinsel town. While the Judwaa actor has been unaffected by critics or then box office and rode solely in the film industry on his sheer star power and fans support. Wanted gave Salman Khan’s career a new direction, identity and face. He emerged as the undaunted King of action. The romantic fun loving Prem from movies, became the action star! And ever since, fans have relished every action masala movie of SK!
