Recently, Salman Khan was convicted by the Rajasthan Sessions Court in the Black Buck case.
It was at that time, everyone really understood the value of the brand Salman Khan. Over 1200 crore Indian rupees were at stake even if he is arrested as per the conviction. However, he got bail and everyone who has invested in the brand Salman Khan are relieved for a while.
All these events lead us at Filmy Keeday to research and analyze the overall net worth of Salman Khan AKA Bhaijaan of Bollywood.

His brothers Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan are also successful film directors with his brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri also being a film actor.
Salman Khan’s Filmy Family
Despite hailing from a film family, Salman Khan is the only and the biggest brand from the family. However, the journey to stardom for our Sultan wasn’t an easy ride. Although he got off to a great start in the Khan Dominance era of the 90s, his career saw a great slump in the new millennium.
Salman struggled due to his high temper, arrogant attitude, and drinking issues as the Bollywood entered the new millennium. He also went through a series of personal controversies such as the breakup with Aishwarya Rai, 2002 hit-and-run case, the Black Buck hunting etc. Despite personal struggles and challenging new millennium, Bollywood witnessed his huge fan following during the release of 2003 film Tere Naam when his hairstyle in the film was adopted by many of his fans across India.
Although began as a romantic hero, Salman tried his best to get out of the chocolate boy image and tried his luck with action films too. He failed in the initial years of this transition but found the much-needed success as an action hero with a series of successful films year after year.
Since the 2009 film Wanted, Salman Khan’s Bollywood career has always been on the rise with blockbusters after blockbusters. Thanks to his success ratio, he is also currently the highest paid actor in Bollywood.
Consistent Success in the last Decade
After a huge slump in the initial years of the new millennium, Salman Khan’s film career picked up after the success of 2009 film Wanted. The fortunes of the Bhaijaan of Bollywood changed later as he went on to deliver blockbusters after blockbusters singlehandedly with a series of successful films like Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger, Kick, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan, etc.
