Born on December 27, 1965 Salman Khan is the son of the legendary writer Salim Khan, who penned many super-hits in the yesteryear’s like Sholay (1975), Deewaar (1975), and Don (1978). Salman started his acting carrier in 1988 by doing a supporting role in the movie Biwi Ho To Aisi (1988). The following year he had the leading role in the box office romantic hit Maine Pyar Kiya (1989). From there he became a heart throb of Indian cinema.

In 1998 he was arrested by the local police from the shooting location of the film Hum Saath-Saath Hain: We Stand United (1999), for killing protected wild animals and spent about a week behind the bars. The actor is facing trial in three cases of killing black bucks and Chinkaras and another of illegal possession of arms. In September 2002, Salman Khan had hit the headlines after he crashed his Land Cruiser near the American Express bakery in Bandra, killing one man and injuring others.

Being known for those roguish behaviors, he tried to balance his troubled life with his career. In 2003, he gave his emotionally charged performance as playing an obsessed lover in Tere Naam (2003) that translated into good reviews and a good run at the box office. He not only managed to revive his career, but also to restore the confidence of his producers and distributors alike.

His work was noticed internationally in the movie Phir Milenge (2004) where he played the role of an AIDS patient. It was well appreciated by the World Health Organization (WHO) for presenting the problems of AIDS patient in today’s world.

He also helped revive Govinda’s struggling career with the blockbuster “Partner” and worked in many of his brothers films, giving them hits such as “Ready”, “Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya” and “Dabbang”. He brought director Sanjay Leela Bhansali to the limelight by taking on his debut film “Khamoshi” and then giving him commercial success for the 1999 blockbuster “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam”.

His film Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2 broke all box office records upon their releases. It has the highest grossing first day amount as well as the first week. It is the fastest bollywood film to pass the 100 crore mark, achieving the feat in a record breaking 5 days. This new triumph has established Khan as one of the biggest superstars in Hindi cinema history. It is now the second highest grossing Hindi film of all time, barely two weeks into its release.
