Salman Khan said, “I was about 18 years old then, and shooting the song ‘Kabootar Ja Ja Ja’ was a memorable moment. There came a moment when I suddenly realised that this role was meant for me.”

He further expressed, “Diring the new generation of film, I could only imagine Jackie Shroff or Anil Kapoor in such roles. I couldn’t even imagine myself in big roles in big films. But that moment was the first time I actually felt that yes, I could do it. I had tears in my eyes.”

Salman Khan was selected for ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ after several auditions. After the film became a hit, Salman had to sit idle for a few months, but his career eventually got back on track.

Since entering the film industry in the 90s, Salman Khan, at the age of 58, continues to rule the silver screen. Speaking of Salman Khan’s upcoming projects, ‘Sikandar’ is his next film. It is directed by AR Murugadoss and is set to release next year on Eid.

A year later, Sooraj Barjatya launched Salman as a hero with ‘Maine Pyar Kiya.’ This film proved to be a milestone in the actor’s career. His pairing with Bhagyashree was highly appreciated.
