Salman Khan: Anticipation is building amongst fans for Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Tiger 3’, where the Bollywood megastar, affectionately known as Bhaijaan, is expected to deliver a gripping performance. Known for its high-octane action and thrills, ‘Tiger 3’ promises to be a cinematic experience where viewers will be glued to their seats, unable to look away.

Adding to the excitement is Katrina Kaif, whose action sequences are also highly anticipated. Amidst this buzz, a surprising revelation about Salman Khan has come to light, leaving fans and onlookers astonished. It turns out, had his foray into acting not been successful, Salman Khan might have chosen a completely different career path.

‘Tiger 3’, set to release during Diwali 2023, is poised to be a blockbuster. However, what many may not know is that 34 years ago, the actor, known for his commanding presence, had a backup plan in place. During the release of his debut film, Salman faced the anxiety common to many new actors – the fear of failure.

His debut in the Bollywood industry was marked by the 1988 film ‘Biwi Ho To Aisi’, followed by the much-loved ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ in 1989. It was during this critical juncture in his career that a significant decision loomed over Salman.

Actor Sahil Chaddha, a contemporary of Salman, shared an insightful anecdote. He recalled a conversation with Salman Khan during the release of his film ‘Lal Dupatta Malmal Ka’. Salman had confided in him, stating that if ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ succeeded, he would continue his acting career. However, if it didn’t, he was prepared to pivot and pursue a career in film direction.
