He is known to side with the beauties...
Salman Khan is known for his generous nature. He is blessed with a blockbuster career and guess that makes him feel obliged to help those who can’t really boast of one. He likes to spot talent and push them forward for a better future. But he also believes in putting his weight behind someone he feels has the potential but is not getting the right opportunities. Ladies of Bollywood are the most fortunate ones here who have often gotten the right push in their career whenever they worked in his films. So here are five actresses who benefited from Salman’s generosity.
1. Sonakshi Sinha
Salman believed she had it in her to become a great actress when Sonakshi had her doubts. She made her knock off a few kilos and become his muse in Dabangg. Rest as they say is history. She became the queen of 100 crore club with back to back hits. Someone who has spent so many years in the industry can never go wrong in sensing potential in others. Sonakshi will vouch for it.
2. Jacqueline Fernandez
Everyone wants that one big hit which will change his/her career forever. Jacqueline Fernandez it seems was also looking for that one big KICK and she got it with a film starring Salman Khan. The amount of records a Salman Khan film breaks cannot be put in words. It’s as if the only purpose of his films is to become the biggest grosser of the year. Kick certainly earned profusely and propelled Jacqueline into the big league.
3. Katrina Kaif
It’s an open secret that Salman is instrumental in giving Katrina Kaif the right platform to showcase her talent. Although she would want to erase even the slightest memory of Boom, it goes without saying that Salman’s presence in her life helped her not repeat the same. While Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya made her a great actress, Ek Tha Tiger got her the biggest numbers. Even after their alleged breakup, they are friends.
4. Kareena Kapoor
Yes, Kareena Kapoor has made a place in the industry on her own right although she loves doing Khan films more. Bodyguard and Bajrangi Bhaijaan are two of her biggest grossers. So obviously, Salman Khan’s Midas touch did do a lot of favour to her too.
5. Sonam Kapoor
You might argue it is too early to talk about Prem Ratan Dhan Payo since the film hasn’t released. But do you really think this Salman Khan film will not make obscene numbers like BB? Trade is of the opinion that this film will even go past Bajrangi... and if that happens, Sonam Kapoor will perhaps get the biggest grosser of her career with Prem Ratan... That definitely will be a game-changer for her.
All these actresses are great in their own right but without Salman, a few of their successes wouldn’t have been a reality. What do you think?
