Shah Rukh Khan’s Comeback movie is minting huge numbers at the Box Office. The movie is all set to enter the 100-crore club on the occasion of Republic Day. Although the movie opened to mixed reviews from a few, it has managed to hit a chord with the loyal fan base of the star. One of the major highlights of the movie was Superstar Salman Khan’s 10-minute cameo. The movie marked the return of the iconic SRK – Salman duo back on screen.
Here are a few other instances when Salman Khan impressed everyone with his cameo
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Not a cameo per se but a guest appearance. Salman’s entry in the second half of the movie with the song ‘Saajan Ji Ghar Aaye’ has to be the most iconic surprise in the history of Hindi cinema. Salman looked at his usual ease while doing comedy and playing a boy next door in a Dharma ensemble. This movie is one of the few occasions when two of the biggest stars in the country were seen together. No one can deny that Salman’s contribution to making KKHH a cult classic is immense.
Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani
APKGK (sorry for the acronyms but these names are huge!) was released in November 2009. The period here is crucial as only a couple of months before that Salman Khan had made a thumping comeback to delivering hit movies with his iconic ‘Wanted’.
In the Rajkumar Santoshi movie, Salman was playing himself and he also shared a few comedy scenes with his then rumoured girlfriend Katrina Kaif. The cameo was extremely well received as it was totally unexpected. Rajkumar Santoshi also made it clear that a cameo, if coupled with impressive brief writing can do wonders, and it did as many people flocked to the theatre only to catch the glimpse of ‘Bhaijaan’.
Lai Bhaari marked the Marathi debut of Riteish Deshmukh as an actor. Deshmukh’s first Marathi venture was a huge success and Salman Khan was a big part of it. The two stars share a very cordial relationship off camera, as a result of which Salman willingly became a part of ‘Lai Bhaari’.
The duo had a 5-minute-long comedy sequence which left the audience in splits. Salman Khan, who enjoys a massive following in Maharashtra, impressed everyone with his Marathi skills.
Shah Rukh Khan’s last venture, ‘Zero’ was not huge at the box office. The experimental movie where Shah Rukh Khan played a dwarf had its moment but failed as a whole product. However, it was a song by Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan which became the talking point in the movie.
