Salman Khan is among the leading stars of the Hindi film industry. Khan debuted with a supporting role in the Rekha-Faroque Sheikh film Biwi Ho To Aisi in 1988. However,
his breakout role was in Sooraj Barjatya’s Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), opposite Bhagyashree. In the two-and-a-half decades since, Khan has gone on to become one of the most
influential and polarising superstars in Bollywood. While he regularly sets new records with the box office collections of every successive film, he has also courted controversy,
most notably for a court case resulting from a hit-and-run incident in 2002, in which he was acquitted only last year.
