About Salman Khan
Abdul Rashid Salim Salman Khan, better known as Salman Khan, is a flourishing Indian actor, television presenter, producer and philanthropist. He made his debut in movies with Biwi Ho To Aisi and gained nationwide recognition starring in Maine Pyar Kiya. This film garnered Salman the Filmfare Award for the Best Male Debut. He went on to appear on a number of profitable Indian movies, including Saajan, Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!, Karan Arjun, Judwaa, Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya, Biwi No.1, and of course, Hum Saath Saath Hain. In nine years Khan managed to appear on seven movies, which were later named as the highest grossing films of the year. Until this day no actor has managed to break this record. Which such a success, no wonder Salman Khan net worth currently amounts to $200 million.
Salman is the first child born to Salim Chan, a noticeable Indian screenwriter and actor, best known as one half of the duo Salim-Javed. Although Salim managed to establish a relatively successful career in Bollywood, neither his fame nor fortune ever came close to Salman Khan net worth. Salman’s paternal grandfather originated from Afghanistan and immigrated to India as a teenager, hence his father Salim was raced as a Muslim.
Although his wife, Salman’s mother, was Maratha Hindu, the couple never went into fighting about the matters of religion. As Khan has mentioned in one of his interviews, both Hindu and Islamic festivals, such as Ganesh Chaturthi and Maha Shivaratri, were celibrated in his house.
As mentioned above, Salman Khan net worth shot to the stars in the late 1980s, following his appearance on one of the most profitable Indian movies of all time. This film, which garnered Khan a Filmfare Award for the best actor, was latter dubbed in English and released under the title When the Love Calls. Although this seems like quite an enviable success, the real breakthrough in Khans career came in the late 2000s, when he landed a role in a movie Wanted. The movie enjoyed an excellent opening in both India and Pakistan and eventually evolved to “Blockbuster” verdict.
It looks like Salman Khan net worth did not help him find the woman of his life- the actor never got married and currently lives alone, in a luxurious apartment in Mumbai. In the late 1990s Salman started dating a successful actress Aishwarya Rai, but their love affair did not last long. Since 2001 various media sources have caught him spending time with another actress, Katrina Kaif, but the two refused to confirm their relationship in public. In 2011 Katrina finally admitted that she and Salman were dating for nearly ten years, but went separate ways in 2010.
