Nagini Shree |May 27, 2019

Salman Khan feels that in addition to him, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar are the only ones to be able to maintain stardom for a long time.

Right from the 1950s, we have witnessed some superstars like Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay and many more emerged like superstars of Bollywood. However, the likes of the biggest stars have still gone through movies failing, and hence, star power is fading in Bollywood and it is only the content that is the king after all. Salman Khan too has found that out the hard way.

For the unversed, in 2017 Tubelight starring Salman Khan and Jab Harry Met Sejal starring Shah Rukh Khan failed at the box office. Earlier 2018, the ever dependable Aamir Khan returned to the big screen with the costliest Hindi film till date, Thugs of Hindostan and it turned out to be a big flop. And later Shah Rukh Khan's most ambitious films, Zero, underperformed at the box office.

And despite their supposed failure, it's the three Khans that get the maximum number of footfalls in a theatre on a regular basis. We have to admit that if the film isn’t good, it tanks at the box-office, irrespective of the fact that it stars a big Bollywood celeb starring in it.

True the likes of Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, and Rajkummar Rao have shown promise and their films have made big money at the box office but they are still far away from being given the tag of a "Superstar".

Meanwhile, the actor has been busy with the promotions for his upcoming film, Bharat, which will also co-star Katrina Kaif. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat tracks Salman’s character’s journey along with the journey of India as a nation. The movie will be releasing on June 5, 2019.
