Salman Khan has attained a demi-god status in India thanks to his superstardom and is one of the most widely followed actors all over the world. He has been having a massively successful run at the box-office and has given 12 consecutive 100 Crore films. Even the films like Tubelight and Jai Ho, which faced criticism from his fans, managed to recover their cost and grossed over 100 Crores at the box-office.
He is one of the highest earning actors in India and is also a favourite celebrity host on Television charging astronomical amounts per episode that the channels are more than happy to pay him. He also had a large number of endorsements and whatever he touches, turns into gold. With all the success you may think that 'Bhai' has never failed or faced any rejection but that's not true. Here are 8 times when Bhai faced rejection in real and reel life:
