However in his journey towards stardom, the actor indeed made a lot of mistakes. Today he might lead a rockstar's life, but three mistakes of his life cannot be undone continue to haunt him even today. BollywoodLife brings you 3 mistakes of Salman Khan's life...
The black-buck poaching case: It all happened in 1998 when Salman was shooting for Sooraj Barjatya's film, Hum Saath Saath Hai in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Salman was charged with hunting two black bucks, which were an endangered species, at Kankani village on the night of October 1, 1998. The Kick actor was also accused of carrying illegal arms, following which he was sent to the prison in the same year and again in 2007. It has been almost 16 years, but this mistake continues to haunt him even today. Remember he was denied a visa to UK last year? Well, that was all due to this infamous black buck poaching case.
Break up with Aishwarya Rai (Bachchan): It was during the shoot of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Aishwarya and Salman got along like a house on fire. After which Bollywood found it's first superstar couple. Their affair was the fodder of gossip mills for the longest time. As they say, what's love that has no spark, right? Ash's family opposed the relationship, but she stood by her man. The former Miss World ultimately broke up with Sallu, after he inadvertently admitted that he was unfaithful towards her. In an interview, Ash even went on to confess that Salman was not able to come to terms with their break-up and would often call and harass her. "After we broke up, he would call me and talk rubbish. He also suspected me of having affairs with my co-stars. I was linked up with everyone, from Abhishek Bachchan to Shahrukh Khan.There were times when Salman got physical with me, luckily without leaving any marks. And I would go to work as if nothing had happened," the Taal actor revealed in a rare tell-all interview to a daily.
And because of all the suspicion, the Sallu even reportedly slapped director Subhash Ghai and created a scene on the sets of Kuch Na Kaho, which featured Ash and Abhishek Bachchan in lead roles. That's not all. Salman's tamashaa on the sets of Chalte Chalte, was one of the first spark in the Shahrukh-Salman war. Sallu had stormed onto the sets of the film, pushed Aishwarya to the ground, raised hand on her, prompting intervention from spectators. This was when Shahrukh, who was the producer and hero of this film, intervened in the couple’s heated quarrel and was verbally attacked by Salman. SRK soon replaced Ash with Rani Mukerji in this film, which affected his rapport with the Bachchan bahu. Aishwarya’s career was badly affected as no actor was ready to work with her.
Later the Dhoom 2 actor started dating Vivek Oberoi. The duo were spotted together at various places. However, this too didn't go down well with Ash's ex-flame. Vivek and Salman had a public showdown, where Vivek levelled all sorts of allegations against Salman at a press conference. The Saathiya actor said that Salman threatened to bash him up in public and kill him. Under the full glare of the media, Vivek went on saying how Salman called him 41 times to threaten him. He even openly challenged Salman to a duel.
Vivek thought that he had s support from his lady love and Bollywood, but guess what? Ash was not happy and is said to have found her boyfriend's behaviour very immature. After this panga with Salman, Oberoi Jr lost out on film offers, in fact he suffers from this aftermath even today. His career has seen a steady downfall with playing sidey characters and featuring in multi-starrers.
2002 hit-and-run case: In 2002, while Salman was still reeling with his break-up, another trouble ran into his life quite literally. On the night of September 28, 2002, Salman's Toyota Land Cruiser allegedly ran over five people sleeping on the footpath outside American Express Bakery on Hill Road in Bandra, killing one and injuring four others. Witnesses have alleged that the Judwaa actor was driving the vehicle, but the actor has denied these charge. It was being said that the actor was drunk and after the tests, almost 65mg alcohol was found in his blood on the night of accident. It has been 12 years since, and today this mistake seems to endanger his future as an actor.
And even if Salman Khan continues to have a humungous legion of fans who worship him, these 3 mistakes of his life seem to tag along. He might be the poster boy of Being Human, charity and goodness, the verdict of 2002 hit-and-run case might just take the actor back to dark dungeons of his mistakes...
