Happy Birthday Salman Khan, One Last Time! The Last 12 Reasons I Love You

1 through 40 are important too, but these are my top twelve. (UPDATE: These are mostly the same as in the last two years, with a few tweaks.  And of course a new one added!)

41. That you have embraced your lower income, lower class, Indian-based fans rather than running after the wealthy diaspora audience like everyone else.

42. That you almost never wear a shirt, onscreen or off

43. That you still live in the same house as all your brothers, nephews, father, stepmother, and mother, the one star who truly lives the family message of the films in your life.

44. That you barely use twitter, and when you do, it is usually to promote the work of others, not yourself.

45. That you are truly ‘Salman Bhai’ to all your fans, your friends, and your family, doing everything in your power to protect them from harm and make their dreams come true.

46. And that when you work with Sooraj Barjatya, it is magic.  Like this

47. And this

48. And this

49. And this

50. And this, the moment when I and the world fell for you for the first time, over 25 years ago.

51.  Because your videos with babies are the BEST THING EVER.


52.  And because at age 52, you are looking hotter than you have looked in years.


BONUS 53rd reason: that putting up these birthday post reruns has let me go off and spend the day with my family, something I am sure you would approve of

    • I think you are right. And it does seem like within the doors of his family home, they have continued to keep things simple, the same kind of household it was since long before he was famous, the same kind of household his father grew up in before they even came to Bombay. That must help keep him sane. And my guess is, if he ever decides to retire, he will happily disappear back into the warmth of his home, be a stay at home uncle who plays with the kids and helps serve food to the guests, but feels no need to put himself forward as anything special.
