We are more than half way through the current decade and the Post-2010 period has clearly belonged to Salman Khan. Good or bad films, when it comes to box office superstardom, Salman is head and shoulders above most actors in the industry. His worst performing film in the last 5 years, Jai Ho, not only opened well at the box office, but also went on to do business in excess of 100 crore.
But which is Salman Khan’s best film in the last 5 years? Read on, as we pick our Top 3 Salman Khan films this decade.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan: Inspite of all the success that Salman has achieved in the last few years, he has always been criticised for either remaking south Indian blockbusters or opting for ‘masala’ entertainers. All that changed with ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. The story of a simpleton who ensures that a young girl from Pakistan reaches home safely, won over both the critics and the audience. ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is the biggest blockbuster of Salman’s career after ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ and ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’.
Dabangg: The Abhinav Kashyap directed film didn’t have a particularly gripping storyline, but the film was entirely riding on the shoulders of Salman Khan, who delivered arguably the most charismatic performance of his career. Chulbul Pandey was a massive hit with the audience and a major blockbuster at the box office.
Kick: Veteran producer Sajid Nadiadwala made his directorial debut with Kick. Salman’s co-star Nawazuddin Siddiqui stole the show with his inimitable performance, Jacqueline Fernandes was at her glamorous best, Salman and Randeep Hooda were in fine form too. Result? An entertaining film that went on to be yet another box office blockbuster.
