Salman Khan has a lot to celebrate these days, especially after becoming the only Bollywood superstar to deliver hits after hits 14 times in a row. The kicker? All of these hits have netted at least Rs 100 crores each!
His latest movie with Katrina Kaif, the action-drama Bharat has helped Salman Khan add another feather to his cap.
Salman’s Box office success journey began with Dabangg. This was followed by Ready, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger, Dabangg 2, Jai Ho, Kick, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Sultan, Tubelight, Tiger Zinda Hai and Race 3.
Bollywood’s Third Biggest Opening Ever
Despite a very important World Cup match between India and South Africa, Bharat took on the big screen with an eye-popping opening. It became the third highest opening Bollywood film of all time, earning Rs 42.6 crores after Aamir Khan starer Thugs Of Hindostan (Rs 50.75 crores) and just shy of Shahrukh Khan starer Happy New Year (Rs 42.62 crores).
Bharat’s journey at the Box-Office begins!

Even though it is his 14th consecutive movie to cross the Rs 100 crore mark, Sallu Bhai is not calling it quits yet. Guess we can certainly expect another blockbuster from this legendary actor.
