Bollywood superstar Salman Khan completed 35 years in Hindi cinema on August 26 and his fans have gone unstoppable celebrating the remarkable journey of their matinee idol.

Son of legendary screenwriter Salim Khan, Salman Salim Abdul Rashid Khan popular as Salman Khan, is one of the most commercially successful actors in Indian cinema. Though he began his acting career in a supporting role with Biwi Ho To Aisi in 1988, he got his breakthrough as a lead actor with Maine Pyar Kiya in 1989.

Throughout his career spanning 35 years, Sallu has treated fans with several commercially successful movies. Be it family drama, romantic, comedy, or action, the actor has nailed his characters in different genres cementing his place in the hearts of movie lovers. With stellar performances in different avatars, the 57-year-old actor has amused moviegoers and still continues to do so. The excitement for Tiger 3, and Tiger vs. Pathaan says it all.

Undeniably, Sallu is counted among the A-listers of Bollywood for his dedication toward work and also remains a dear colleague in the film fraternity.

However, in a recent video, actress Shruti Haasan compared Sallu with legendary Indian actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan. The video has gone viral on social media with fans hailing the long journey of their matinee idol.

In the video, Shruti says, "Salman Khan fans, they very much remind me of Kamal Haasan or Rajinikanth fans, Bachchan sir’s fans. They still drive opposite his house and there are people waiting for him to wave. That’s a different vibe and energy. And I think, that wave doesn’t exist the same way in Bollywood and that doesn’t exist for everyone in Telugu or Tamil either. It is I guess, the chosen ones.”

Well, with such a statement, Shruti certainly would have won the hearts of Salman Khan’s fans. Undeniably, fans, admirers, and well-wishers make the actors who they are.

Though Shruti hasn’t yet shared screen space with Salman Khan, fans will certainly love to see the pairing of the duo on the silver screen.
