Salman Khan is truly the hero of the masses. The actor is not only adored by many but whatever he dons quickly becomes a style statement, even though sometimes they are not even remotely wearable. On his 48th birthday, here is a look at some of the style trends that Salman Khan popularised among the masses.
Salman Khan does have a devout group of followers who blindly follow whatever the Bhai of Bollywood does.

Every young guy wanted to gel his hair and go for the middle parting.

While Salman Khan often finds himself shrouded by controversies and has several court cases against him, the insiders of Bollywood often call him a star with a golden heart. Khan is known to be a pillar for friends in need of support, he has launched several careers and never shies away from 'Being Human'. Incidentally, he has also started an NGO and a clothing label by that name and is often spotted wearing 'Being Human' t-shirts.
