When it comes to Salman, Bollywood audience get divided into two groups. One group enjoy his films, which are almost always entertainers. The others criticize him for his acting and lack of novelty in his movies. Both groups have their reasons, and both the reasons are valid. So does Salman deserves to be a star or not? This statement is a paradox. All being said, Salman Khan is irreplaceable. You might love him or hate him, there’s no denying that he has a legacy of his own.Among all these debates and discussions, here out this crazy assumption, “Which popular Hollywood characters can be performed by Salman Khan?” Could he pull off an Oscar winning performance like a ‘Revenant’ or ‘Dallas Buyers Club’, maybe not. But there are few roles which are perfect for him.
Before going into the article, let me clear this out. This article is not to criticize Salman or degrade any Hollywood classic characters. This is just to have some fun imagining our household star in our favorite Hollywood flicks. Some of these choices may not be a character similar to anything he has done before, but I’ve included them because I think there’s nothing wrong in him trying out such genres. Read On.
12. Paul Brenner – The General’s Daughter (1999)
It’s a long shot, but I think I’ll take it. The honourable man Paul Brenner is struck between duty and reality. Thriller is something Salman hasn’t touched, but it may not be a bad idea. Salman Khan has that military personality. Taking orders from a superior blindly and following his command, he has done that sort of character in ‘Bodyguard’. I also observe few similarities between the personalities of 1990’s John Travolta and Salman Khan. The rigid and well-built frame can help Salman in carrying this role.
