Salman Khan profile: bad boy with heart

Bollywood Actor Profile
By Susan Aurellio

On August 15, 2011, Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger film released and the box office went crazy. That’s the draw of the “bad boy” of Bollywood, Salman Khan. The movie is projected to be the second highest grossing Bollywood film. And so Salman Khan has done it over again. The Ek Tha Tiger movie is third consecutive release of his movies to dominate the rankings.
Bollywood’s bad boy
Salman Khan—known as Bollywood’s “bad boy”—was born as Abdul Rashid Salim Salman Khan on 27th of December 1965. He is an Indian film actor who has appeared in over 80 Hindi movies. He is known for many things: memorable roles, acting ability, charisma and—as a dedicated bodybuilder—a superstar body. His body measurements are 42-inch for the chest, 17-inch for the biceps and 30-inch for his waist.

World’s seventh-best looking man
In 2004, Salman Khan was voted as the seventh-best-looking man in the world—and the best looking man in —as rated in PEOPLE Magazine, USA. On the 11th of October 2007, Salman Khan accepted an offer from the wax museum of Madame Tussauds in London to have a wax replica crafted of himself. His life-size wax figure was mounted at the museum last 15th of January 2008,—only the fourth Indian actor to have been created as wax figure in the museum.
Suffers from trigeminal neuralgia
Unfortunately, on August 2011 he disclosed that he suffers from trigeminal neuralgia, a nerve disorder in facial area generally known as the suicide disease. The disease has even affected his voice, making it sound much harsher. In one press interview he alleged that he has been secretly bearing the suffer from it for the previous several years, but now the agony has become unbearable.
Five hour corrective surgery attempted to remove the blocks inside his mouth, and he returned to his burgeoning career immediately. Subsequently, complained publicly of a knot of pain in his jaw.
Typical of a superstar, his love life is hot news in most of the Indian press. His co-star in Ek Tha Tiger, Katrina Kaif confessed in one interview that she had been in a relationship with Salman Khan that ended in 2010.
Charitable work
Salman Khan is active in several charities. Khan founded an NGO called “Being Human Foundation”. The foundation focuses on education and healthcare. Salman Khan set up the Foundation with his own money from money generated from his own film productions. His company, “Salman Khan Being Human Productions” first created the kids entertainer “Chillar Party”, which went on to received awards for Child Artist’s Award, Best Children’s film and best original screenplay.
