"Bharat" Becomes 14th Bumper Openings In Salman Khan’s Career, Just Behind Shah Rukh Khan

Kareena Kusari |Jun 07, 2019

With such big flops together with a rough phase in his career for a couple of years, many detractors stated that Salman Khan's heyday was over. However, "Bharat" with an incredible opening, brought the top position back to the veteran actor.

The year 2018 witnessed the change in ranks and positions of many Bollywood flicks. While several low-budget movies turned the box-office hits, Shah Rukh Khan’s huge-budget flick, Zero, faced the total failures.

Additionally, Salman Khan’s Race 3 and Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan also suffered the same sad fate as receiving numerous extremely negative reviews from critics despite their box-office successes.

With such big flops together with a rough phase in his career for a couple of years, many detractors stated that the Bollywood heyday of three Khans, namely Salman Khan was over.

However, Bharat’s incredible opening brought the top position back to the veteran actor. Raking in over Rs 43 crore, Salman Khan’s movie has beaten other rivals to rise to the second highest-grossing opening of all time.

Concurrently, with Bharat's record-breaking opening, Salman Khan has presently become the second Bollywood actor to possess 14 bumper openings. The sole actor prior to Salman is Shah Rukh Khan with 16 bumper openings.

In addition to SRK and Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, and Sunny Deol have over 10 to their names. Meanwhile, Aamir Khan possesses nine bumper openings.

Undeniably, one of the positive contributions to Bharat's opening success can’t help but mention the Eid festival, which pushes a sudden surge in its first collections. However, with the compelling script as well as a talented cast including Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Sunil Grover, Disha Patani, and Jackie Shroff, the movie won’t surely stop at the opening success at the box office.

Now, let's take a glance at the list of Salman’s fourteen bumper openings here:

1. Saajan (1991)

2. Karan Arjun (1995)

3. Jeet (1996)

4. Biwi No.1 (1999)

5. Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999)

6. Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge (2000)

7. Partner (2007)

8. Dabangg (2010)

9. Bodyguard (2011)

10. Ek Tha Tiger (2012) - Holiday

11. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo  (2015) - Holiday

12. Sultan (2016) - Holiday

13. Tiger Zinda Hai (2017)

14. Bharat (2019) - Holiday
