Salman Needs A Hit Desperately!!


It is no doubt that Salman Khan was one of the most good looking men in India once upon a time (For some he still is). Today he is one of the most popular actors in Bollywood. He is practically a youth icon.
Salman turns 43 this December and one look at his career graph, particularly since last three years and we see that the man desperately needs a hit because after No Entry which was his last big hit, he hadn’t had a super hit film.

There was Kyunki, his next film after No Entry that bombed despite Salman’s good performance as  a mad man who had accidentally murdered his wife.

In 2006, there was Jaan-e-mann that did not do commercially well, whatever appreciation the film got was because of the fairly good music and Akshay Kumar’s wonderful performance as a nerd. Babul was a disaster, Salman was not enough a reason to draw crowds for a movie so pathetically dragging and boring.

2007, Salam-e-ishq flopped miserably but Partner managed to be a good entertainer and could be termed as an average hit. In 2008 Heroes was appreciated but wasnt a commercial success and ofcourse there is Yuvraaj which also flopped despite much hype.

Looking at his contemporaries, Aamir Khan is still going strong with his power-packed performances in his films like Rang De Basanti, Taare Zameen Par and now Ghajini which looks a lot promising. Shahrukh Khan is the most expensive star in Bollywood, and now he has also started experimenting with his roles (although half the credit of his success goes to the support from big banners ala friendship with Adi Chopra and Karan Johar), Akshay Kumar has truly proved himself the Kinng.

Amongst his age group, Sallu faces tough competition and its about time Salman brings in a little stability in his personal and professional life. We are waiting for him to deliver another Hum Aapke Hain Koun or a Tere Naam may be - We hope Veer brings him some smiles with box office success.

Perhaps a little sensible film selection would go a long way in helping him keep up with the competition.
