While some might say that lady luck has been on Salman Khan's side for the longest time, what can't be ignored is the contribution of his loyal fans towards his stardom. The superstar who has earned a formidable reputation has fought his way through the crowd and cemented an unattainable position for himself. In this era of content-driven cinema, the Dabangg actor continues to make merry with his larger-than-life films. Very few actors now cater solely to the masses in this period of progressive cinema.
His latest outing, Dabangg 3 has managed to open with Rs 24.50 crore solely on his glory. Only a megastar like Salman Khan has the star power to draw the crowds effortlessly and garner such a massive opening. He is one star who generates maximum revenue to the industry each year by providing employment to many needy people. The industry swears on its star-like bhai to generate massive revenue year after year! Good, bad or ugly Salman's stardom is irreplaceable and we don't see any budding actor taking that position in the near future. Releasing a film during a national emergency is not favorable at all. The ongoing protest in the country due to the CAA Bill has built a tense situation across the nation but regardless of it, Dabangg 3 kept the cash registers ringing. It is evident that he pulled off a film just on the strength of his stardom. It is definitely not a cakewalk. Salman Khan has again proved that his fan-following is as loyal as that of Amitabh Bachchan and Rajinikanth.
The film has crossed the 100-crore benchmark and is all set to cross the Rs 150 crore landmark. The industry can often engulf you but it needs immense maturity to have a reality check being a superstar and Salman is one such star who is well aware of the blurry line between real and reel.
