Salman Khan is mostly known for his body, sense of humor and dancing style, and less for his acting skills. However, time has been evident of what an actor Khan is. He has, film after film proved that he is, and will always be the Robin Hood of every heart! Here are ten of his many performances that brought of the best of the actor in Khan…
Maine Pyaar Kiya
This was Salman Khan’s first role as a hero, which gave him the name, Prem, and how has Prem charmed us, movie after movie, romancing the leading ladies of Bollywood. This movie is still one of India’s highest grossing films, and was also later dubbed in Spanish, which was a great achievement for Bollywood.
Hum Aapke Hain Kaun
This movie created history by winning five Filmfare Awards and one National Award. Not only this, Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit’s chemistry wooed the audience and critics alike, and they became, and still are, one of the most lovable pairs of Bollywood.
Andaz Apna Apna
Although Salman Khan shared the screen with Amir Khan but the two delivered one of the best performances of their respective careers. The character Prem again shone the screen with all the iconic dialogues. It is also said that the film makers and actors were skeptical about the movie but later it turned out to be the best of the best movie of all times.
Here, Salman Khan played a double role. One one hand, he played an innocent Prem, while on the other Tapori Raja, and mastered both of them.
Critics say that they saw Salman Khan in a never seen before avatar in Tere Naam. He not only played the lover boy, as he had in the past, but his character also had an emotional touch. No one had ever thought that Khan could nail such a role as well.
Hum Saath Saath Hain
Though Salman Khan didn’t have a huge role in this film because it was a multi-starrer, but his role as Prem won all the hearts. Not only did he take most of the credits for the movie, but took Prem to a whole new level. This movie, like every Rajshri film, spoke about the role and value of family!
Ek Tha Tiger
Nothing was wrong in this film. From the cinematography to the dialogues, everything was just perfect. And what worked wonder for this film, and what enhanced Khan’s acting skills was his enthralling chemistry with Katrina Kaif. No wonder they look good together!
One of my favorite Salman Khan films, this movie proved that even after failing at creating chemistry with Kareena Kapoor Khan in Main Aur Mrs Khanna, Sallu Bhai could do it, and in fact, could do it so properly. His portrayal as Lovely, his love for Divya (Kareena Kapoor) and his fights against villains worked for him
Bajrangi Bhaijaan took the box-office and critics by a storm. Khan’s acting, his chemistry with Kareena, innocence and love for Munni, all worked wonders for the film. Kabir Khan has never let us down!
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
This movie is my personal favorite from this list, where, Khan played the role of Sameer which was a powerhouse of several emotions. With Salman Khan as one of the best stand out performance and Aishwarya Rai as the leading lady they both shared an exceptionally great chemistry onscreen which will be enjoyed by the audiences always.
