‘Bhai’ to menfolk who have made him into a folk hero, Chulbul Pandey to new fans, the handsomest young actor to take his shirt off for millennials and a likeable, headstrong, but fallible, screen romantic to the rest of us greying hairs, Salman Khan has been a silent, strong-jawed presence loath to speak on matters other than films. Until now, when coronavirus stalks the globe. Posting a photo where he’s with nephew Nirvaan, Salman admits to being ‘terrified’, and expresses concern for his father, who is staying alone. He should do this more—it humanises the strongman.

As a snarling Dirty Harry teases out criminals in LA; as Frank Serpico goes und­ercover in New York, Chulbul Pandey does age-old, comic acrobatics to hurt ‘baddies’, then giggles around his lady love. Flogging the same masala, here comes the trailer of Dabangg 3, at the launch of which Salman points at the same direction, while Sonakshi Sinha and Saiee Manjrekar prepare to follow the leader with loving attention.

What do they actually do in Bigg Boss—that synthetic morass of shape-­shifting loyalties, gro­up­­ings and couplings by people clinging on to the skirts of fame, dragg­ing along an endless stream of stragglers agape before their boxes? At least Boman Irani, Rajkummar Rao and Mouni are doing something specific—horsing around joyfully, canvassing for their film Made in China. Major domo Sal­man, of course, is there at every step, falling in and out with practised difficulty.

Our nationalist cine workers associations have passed a diktat—anyone who dares to perform in Pakistan will be ostr­acised henceforth. Poor Mika Singh peddled his fare at a Pakistani wedding and was, consequently, banned from performing in India. Our steadfast protectors didn’t stop at this—Mika is in Salman’s entourage for a US tour, so they have theatened the superstar with a shut-out too if.... Appeal to our dearest Bhai: flex those muscles, do, and call these cowards out.

Katrina looks as nimbly smashing as when we first laid our eyes upon her, while Sal­man has a rougher edge in the upcoming Bharat. But that’s not the tale here. Poor Bhaijaan, has had to bow, inevitably, to the raging bloodlust after the Pulwama attacks and will replace the songs sung by Pakistani singers with Indian voices.

If the great Raj Kapoor failed to move the mulish public playing a joker, how could Shahrukh impress them as a midget? So it’s unsurprising that Zero is a flop, afer all its inge­nious marketing. Is the Khanate on shaky ground?

Salman Khan’s movies have all been about himself in recent times, but it was this tale of a simple soul who risks his life to reu­nite a little girl with her family in Pakistan that will stay in public memory. This rare one from the Bandra boy goes beyond muscle-flexing.

This one truly took Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dreams of grandeur to the Indian household. The minutely det­ailed illusion of a temporally unbothered Gujarati haveli seemed to make for unavoidable indulgence.

Check out those girls first, left to right. The floral printed dress with the cheery headband, the one in the garb of an Arab belly dancer (but looking too happy to be seductive), and the ubiquitous Punjabi lass who swings, then swings some more. Do they dance the same step? We wouldn’t know, but in the foreground is bhaijaan Salman, wearing one of those singlets he so lovingly endorses, pitching for Bigg Boss 12 at Nerul, Goa. Top quote: “People used to ask me when I’m getting married.... I think I will marry Bigg Boss.” Now, that’s blazingly witty!

Salman’s bro-hood with Kamalahaasan began in 2013, when the latter’s Vishwaroop ran into trouble, and Salman had pitched strongly for it. Now that Vishwaroop 2 is com­ing up, where else can Kamal go for maximum traction but to the sets of Dus Ka Dum, where the two dapper men added to their chemistry. A glad Kamal tweeted: “Bhai ho to aisa.”

In the next frame, Shahrukh plants a cheeky kiss on Salman’s cheek. SRK released a second teaser for his upc­oming film, the Anand L. Rai-directed Zero, in time for Eid. A jittery little person (Shahrukh) walks tow­ards the stage at a dance competition—but Salman comes and fortifies him before they bust out some moves. Groovy. Do we still say groovy?

You might laugh at him for his pained, constr­icted onscreen smiles, or his distressing att­empts at emoting, but Salman Khan’s con­­v­­iction in the blackbuck shooting case is not a matter of jest. Salman, who had tried to evade responsibility for for a long time, was given five years. No, he won’t do time for long, but will surely get a long glimpse of the insides of Jodhpur Central Jail.
