Today Salman Khan turns 46. And the Khan-man is now a well-known brand name. But this wasn’t always the case. While the star has had some commendable hits, he has faced the shame of flops too. But what made him a star? These ups and downs did!

Salman Khan shot to stardom as Prem with Sooraj Barjatya’s Maine Pyar Kiya and now life has come to a full circle for him as he will soon play Prem again in Barjatya’s next movie in the near future. But between these two ‘Prems’, the actor has become more characters than most people can remember. Some (Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun…!, Dabangg) attained box office highs, while others (Sanam Bewafa, Hum Saath Saath Hain, Veer) didn’t do well. But on Salman Khan’s birthday, here is a list of films that rocked and made him the superstar that he is today

Will 2012 bring a new twist in Salman’s style? Wethinks it’s time to wait and watch!
