MUMBAI: Salman Khan, one of Hindi film industry’s commercially most successful actor, completes his silver jubilee in Bollywood this year. His younger brother, actor-filmmaker Arbaaz Khan says Salman’s own decisions have helped his career to flourish all through the years.
“Salman has had a flourishing career by making his own desisions,” Arbaaz told reporters at a recent event.
Arbaaz says it’s not wise to pinpoint the failures in one’s career.
“Normally, most decisions you take may be right, but sometimes, you take the decisions that fail, like in between you do the films that don’t work. But that doesn’t matter! The average matters.”
“Like in cricket, you have the average (score). So, same way in films, if you have done 10 films, (it matters depending) how many of them have been liked by the audiences, and have been successful,” he added.
Talking about Salman’s career in specific, the 45-year-old said: “If you see Salman’s career graph, you will see that most of his films have worked, done well and that’s why he is at this position today.”
Salman made his debut in 1988 with the film “Biwi Ho To Aisi”, but as the main lead his first film was “Maine Pyar Kiya” in 1989. He gave commercial hits like “Saajan”, “Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!”, “Karan Arjun”, “Judwaa”, “Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya”, “Biwi No.1” and “Hum Saath Saath Hain”.
In recent hits, he cemented his position with five back-to-back blockbusters – “Dabangg”, “Ready”, “Bodyguard”, “Ek Tha Tiger” and “Dabangg 2”.
But Salman never turns to his brother for advice.
“Neither do I need to give advice to him nor he wants it realistically. He has now developed a kind of sense and judgement… in which image, which films and which people he has to work,” he added.
