The Importance Of Being Salman Khan

Posted on: September 11, 2011

From “Maine Pyar Kiya” to “Bodyguard”, Salman Khan has come a long way. What is the secret behind such a phenomenal success of Salman Khan? What’s so special about this Khan who has given four hits in a row and nothing seems to stop him at the age of 45? Critics are pulling their hair at the quality of his recent films that are blockbuster hits. He is reigning supreme at the box office. He is the number one hero as of now. Some media houses even went to the extent of comparing him to the Southern super star Rajnikanth.

Believe it or not Salman Khan has been going through the best phase of his career. Whatever he touches seems to turn to gold. He has come to be known as a superstar with the Midas touch. His films are not serious. They lack any coherent plots. So many cinematic liberties are taken and yet his fans queue up outside the cinema halls to watch their adorable hero with impeccable looks and chiseled body to woo them and transport them to the land where they would love to be in his shoes. He comes across as a simple actor on screen. He defies all the logic that is normally associated with the persona of the most popular super star.

There doesn’t seem to be any method to the madness called Salman Khan. He doesn’t work with the so-called big banners. He doesn’t indulge in street smart gimmicks to promote his films on the eve of their releases. He seems effortless in whatever he does. His charm too has that careless touch to it. Take it or leave it kind of an attitude. You are free to do whatever you like. I am what I am. You can love me or hate me or ignore me at your own peril. But I am here to stay. This is what one feels about Salman Khan who has got the nickers of his superstar colleagues in a twist following the resounding success of his latest Bodyguard.

He knows how to entertain without being complicated. The audiences flock to the cinema halls to have some relief from the daily worries and tensions. They like to see the hero doing things and pulling of breathtaking stunts in style that they cannot do in real life. He has an uncanny knack of knowing the pulse of his audience. This is why he is so successful. He doesn’t want to be logical or answer whys and whats. Things are straightforward and he likes them that way. This is why when he breaks onto the screen, the fans go berserk and the girls stop breathing expecting him to rip off his shirt exposing those well-toned muscles.

Sometimes to remind us we are humans, we need superstars like Salman Khan who can do (on screen) what we humans cannot do. He doesn’t make any efforts to endear himself to the masses. He is someone who doesn’t like to get trapped in any images. This is what we seem to like about him and we have created a special place in our hearts. He is really critics’ nightmare and producers’ delight as one critic put it. Maybe he forgot to add he is his fans’ delight too. Get well soon, Salman Khan. Your fans are praying for you and your speedy recovery.
