Surprisingly, the kind of response that Salman Khan films usually get from his audiences didn’t translate very well with his last film ‘Jai Ho. Directed by Salman Khan’s brother Sohail Khan, ‘Jai Ho’ was bashed by the critics and audiences alike. With a very slow start at the box office keeping Salman Khans’ popularity and track record in mind, ‘Jai Ho’ eventually inched towards Rs 100 crore. ‘Jai Ho’ made a total of Rs 111 crores at the box office according to figures from Koimoi. Although, the film managed to reach Rs 100 crore, Salman Khan films fare much better at the box office.
Released in 2012, another Salman Khan film managed to make Rs 100 crore. Starring Salman Khan’s former flame Katrina Kaif, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ was directed by Kabir Khan. The film had what Salman Khan fans expect out of his movies and Sallu bhai surely delivered it for his audiences. Salman played India’s top spy while Katrina Kaif was a Pakistani agent. The film is about these two spies from enemy countries and how they fall in love. The film released on Independence Day in 2012 and got a very good response from the audiences
The year 2012 was definitely a good year for Salman Khan which translated into a treat for his fans. The much awaited sequel of his popular ‘Dabangg’ released and Chulbul Pandey did not disappoint this time as well. ‘Dabangg 2’ took the story of Chulbul Pandey further and starred Sonakshi Sinha, Prakash Raj, Arbaaz Khan and Vinod Khanna. According to a report in Koimoi, ‘Dabangg 2’ earned a total of Rs 158.50 crore at the box office. The songs of ‘Dabangg 2’ were also an instant hit with Kareena Kapoor dancing to ‘Fevicol Se’ with Salman.
The 2011 film ‘Bodyguard’ that starred Kareena Kapoor opposite Salman Khan was another Rs 100 crore grosser. The film surely made Salman Khan’s brother-in-law and producer Atul Agnihotri richer as it managed to earn the money in just 8 days straight. ‘Bodyguard’ is a remake of the Malayalam film of the same name that was also directed by Siddiqui. According to Koimoi, ‘Bodyguard’ earned Rs 142 crore at the box office. Salman who had so many other Rs 100 crore films in his hat, added another feather with ‘Bodyguard’.

Directed by Anees Bazmee, ‘Ready’ also featured Paresh Rawal, Arya Babbar and Mahesh Manjrekar in supporting roles. The film’s song ‘Charatcer Dheela Hai’ featuring Salman Khan’s ‘Veer’ co-star Zarine Khan also became very popular.

The film that was released in 2009 also starred Ayesha Takia, Prakash Raj and Vinod Khanna. ‘Wanted’ has whistle-worthy dialogues that makes the film hugely entertaining.
