Salman & Arbaaz rejoice as Dabangg 2 collects over 107 crores
The film opened on a fantastic note stayed consistent showed further rise on Christmas and then enjoyed steady collections on rest of the weekdays as well. Result? More than 107 crores coming in a matter of one week hence resulting in a film which is a clear super hit already.
With the films success Salman is currently enjoying the kind of streak that no other actor of his generation or anyone else for that matter in last 20 years has ever enjoyed.
Yes Shahrukh Khan has been consistent; Aamir Khan has enjoyed a peak season as well while Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgan have delivered hits at regular intervals as well.
However last man before Salman who gave five superhits/blockbusters in a row (and that too in such gargantuan proportion) has been only one man – Amitabh Bachchan!
Now is the time for me to actually make this declaration Salman Khan in the 21st century has turned out to be what Amitabh Bachchan was in the 20th century! The current generation which perhaps missed out on the euphoria that Big B once enjoyed is fortunate to see phenomenon up close and personal.
As for those who have been a witness to Bachchans popularity and before that perhaps Rajesh Khanna Rajendra Kumar or Dilip Kumar it is an event of a lifetime which has turned out to be reality two times over.
Salman Khan has turned out to be the greatest entertainer of the current era and thats a reason big enough to relish and cherish!
