seeing Aishwarya Rai at the time) to have called
the latter 41 times during one night and
threatened him with death as well.

knack of walking into trouble has
overshadowed people's perception of him as
an actor. He has been featured as the bad guy
of the industry several times over.
Being known for those roguish behaviors, he
tried to balance his troubled life with his
career. In 2003, he gave his emotionally
charged performance as playing an obsessed
lover in Tere Naam (2003) that translated into
good reviews and a good run at the box
office. He not only managed to revive his
career, but also to restore the confidence of
his producers and distributors alike.

Khan is a very sociable, congenial person and
he wilts very quickly without relationships
with good friends and people to share good
times with. Salman Khan thoroughly enjoys
working with others on group projects or
community activities. He is quite happy when
he is a part of a club, support group, or team
of some sort.
One thing that Salman gets right spot-on
every time is ‘Audience understanding’ and
that is a result of his experience, audience
connect and his ability to understand.
Most of the actors today segment their
audiences in a certain age bracket, but
Salman has understood that his target
audiences cover 5 yr old to 80 yr old band.
Once the attention of target audience has
been captured, he uses the right channels to
reach out to them and mostly he has been
successful . By far his biggest asset is his
susceptibility as a human being and he plays
it to the best of his advantage.
