This article is in making for like years in my head. This week, verdict on Salman Khan was out and he was sentenced for 5 years jail on account of being guilty in poaching of a blackbuck in 1998.
Here are 2 points which I would like everyone to understand Salman as an actor..
His like Dabang, Dabang 2, Veer, Hello, Bodyguard.. Those films created a cult and an audience which didn’t even realized that their taste and their right to watch something fruitful after paying multiplex ticket is taken for granted.
Of course he is not alone to be criticized about this and Bollywood’s other Stars and film makers also have their fair share in deteriorating quality of Bollywood films.
Let me know dig deeper in that, that is a topic for a whole new article.
Now let’s tackle the killer question here…
Why Salman is so hated and loved ?
Salman is loved because..
Very Strong PR
may it be social media or real life, portraying Salman as a loving, caring guy with an aura has worked probably better than the
Body Builder Salman
Remember days when only Salman had that rich muscled and toned torso and his films used to have scripts where he can flaunt it at least once in the film ?
Films released on EID
Salman is hated because…
Salman verbally talked rubbish with Aishwarya Rai after their break-up in 2002, as per Rai’s interview to TOI.
I will refrain myself from making any comment on this if it is true or not as we won’t know for sure, however, one thing is definitely true that his charity work has worked
Bollywood Big Boss
Personification of Injustice
But I believe in probability.. 😛
As a person, If he is acquitted of all charges eventually, he should consider that as a rare chance he is given and conduct himself in a way which should gain praise from his hard critics as well.
Charity is a service best delivered in absence of buzz.
