Bollywood star Salman Khan poses for the media.
There is something about Salman Khan that is noteworthy and eyecatching.
On screen, he is the larger-than-life leviathan, with high on adrenalin scenes that show him duffing up the lowlifes to a pulp; who, despite being on the wrong side of 50, looks evergreen, romancing girls much younger than him; who is the eternal do-gooder, an extraordinary saviour for the ordinary man.
Off screen, controversy seems to always dog him, be it the black buck case, or his one-time faceoff with King Khan in the not-too-distant past, or even his apparent affair with actress Aishwarya Rai.
He is also known to be a star with a large heart, known for his generosity.
He has a huge reach on social media. Now his online popularity has hit the stratosphere – he has, hold your breath, 30 million followers on Instagram now!
He made a freakish 'thank you video' for his growing fan base.
Sharing a boomerang video of himself thanking his fans, Salman, who has been entertaining the audience since the eighties, wrote: "Ouii ma 30 million! Thank u all!"
Fans in return have left him comments like: "Love you salman khan", "Ohoo swag" and "m ur biggest fan sir @beingsalmankhan I love uh".
After wrapping up shooting for "Bigg Boss 13" as its host, the superstar's next movie will be "Radhe". It will see an Eid 2020 release and will feature actress Disha Patani opposite him.
The actor had also made an announcement of his next project after "Radhe". "Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali" will be a collaboration between Salman and filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala.
