A model turned actor Salman made his debut in the film Biwi HoTo Aisi, in which he played co-star to Rekha. With his first two films he became an overnight sensation. However his fame did not take him far, as flops and controversies tied him down. Not to mention the media and the critics who gave him a bad reputation. But Salman did not stay down for long, he bounced back into the spotlight with a brand new look. And in a recently issued American magazine Salman was voted as the seventh best looking man in the world. Now it finally seems that Salman is going to claim the position that he rightly deserves.
Though Salman Khan had a low profile after his first appearence in "Biwi Ho To Aisi", he, successfully, managed to get the attention of a few top class directors and in the way got a big break through Sooraj Barjatya's blockbustser movie "MAINE PYAR KIYA" which broke all kinds of records and at the box office - giving the transformation to him from a low profile category to the high profile in one night. The movie "Maine Pyar Kiya" was given a lot of praise in the industry doing a whole lot of good things for everyone in the movie and to top it all, was given the consideration as SHOLAY - II.
Comes another hit "Patthar Ke Pool" with Raveena Tandon but he was suddenly under the clouds of shadow as a few films of his had flopped and failed at the box office and again Raj Shree comes to his rescue giving him a chance in HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN. Later on, there was no looking back for him as he has risen to the stardom and the life in the industry has been a walk on the bed of roses. He has taken the graduation when he got the FILM FARE's "Best Supporting Actor" for his role in "Kuch Kuch Hota Hain" which shows his maturity as an actor and his roles in "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam" and "Jaanam Samjha Karo" are worth of appreciation.
