When Salim Khan told Salman Khan about the man who could DESTROY his career
Salman Khan has always spoken about how he always follows the advise of his father Salim Khan. But, did you know Salim Khan once told Salman Khan about the man who could destroy his career? – details inside.
If someone says today that Salman Khan’s career, his stardom can be destroyed, people will laugh at that person. The name in itself signifies blockbuster, stardom, celebrity status and more. Ever since his first hit Maine Pyar Kiya in 1989, Salman has been one of the A-list actors in Bollywood and maintained his place at the top for 3 decades. Today, there are only two actor who can challenge his films – Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan, and no others.
But the larger situation is that while SRK and Aamir’s films can bomb if the content produced is not par excellence, Salman’s stardom is unmatched and he shines and makes box-office juggernauts even when his film is critically-panned – Tubelight, Jai Ho and even Race 3, which released earlier this year.
While Salman may be an unstoppable hit film machine today, there was a time when he had stopped working after giving a few hit films in the 90s. The actor, in an old interview with senior journalist Prabhu Chawla, had revealed that he was busy enjoying himself and partying all the time instead of doing films
One day, his father came to him late in the night and said this: “If there is anybody, any man who can foul it all up for you, it’s going to be you! God doesn’t want it to happen, we, your family don’t want that to happen and your fans most certainly don’t want that to happen. So, again, if there’s ‘anybody’ who can mess it all up, it’s you!”
In the interview, Salman Khan had also recalled something that Arbaaz Khan, his younger brother had told him which is an extension to what Salman’s father told him. “If anyone can kill Gabbar Singh from Sholay, it’s Gabbar himself,” Arbaaz told Salman and both these statements shook up the Bollywood superstar and got him motivated to get back on his feet and look for more and more work.
