Salman Khan Goes Out Of Control
Abdul Rashid Salim Salman Khan (born 27 December 1965), credited as Salman Khan (pronunciation:), is an Indian film actor, producer and television personality. He has a significant following in Asia and the Indian diaspora worldwide, and is cited in the media as one of the most popular and commercially successful actors of Hindi cinema.
The son of screenwriter Salim, Khan began his acting career with a supporting role in Biwi Ho To Aisi (1988) and achieved breakthrough with a leading role in his next release—Sooraj Barjatya’s romance Maine Pyar Kiya (1989). Khan went on to establish himself in Bollywood in the 1990s with roles in several top-grossing productions, including the romantic drama Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! (1994), the action thriller Karan Arjun (1995), and the comedy Biwi No.1 (1999). For his role in Karan Johar’s romantic drama Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Khan was awarded the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. After a brief period of decline in the 2000s, Khan achieved greater stardom in the 2010s by playing the lead role in several successful action films, including Dabangg (2010), Bodyguard (2011), Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Kick (2014) and Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015). Nine of the films in which Khan has acted in have accumulated gross earnings of over 1 billion (US$15 million). He is the only actor to star in the highest-grossing Bollywood films of nine separate years.
In addition to his acting career, Khan is a stage performer and an active humanitarian through his charity organisation, Being Human, along with his brother Sooban Ahmad Khan. Khan’s off-screen life is marred by controversy and legal troubles. His tumultuous relationship with Aishwarya Rai, his hunting of endangered species, and a negligent driving case in which he ran over five people with his car, killing one, have been extensively covered by the Indian media. For the last of these, Khan was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment in 2015, but was later acquitted.
Khan is the eldest son of screenwriter Salim Khan and his first wife Sushila Charak (later adopted the name Salma Khan). His paternal ancestors were Pathan from present-day Afghanistan who immigrated to Indore, Madhya Pradesh. Khan’s mother is a Maharashtrian, whose father Baldev Singh Charak comes from Jammu-Kashmir and mother comes from Maharashtra. Salman has stated that he is both Hindu and Muslim.
Khan’s stepmother is Helen, a former actress, who co-starred with him in a few films. He has two brothers, Arbaaz Khan who is married to actress and VJ Malaika Arora Khan, and Sohail Khan; and two sisters, Alvira Khan Agnihotri, who is married to actor/director Atul Agnihotri and an adopted sister Arpita.
Salman finished his schooling at St. Stanislaus High School in Bandra, Mumbai, as did his younger brothers Arbaaz and Sohail. Earlier, he studied at The Scindia School, Gwalior for a few years along with younger brother Arbaaz. He attended Elphinstone College and dropped out after the second year.
