In this episode we discuss Salman Khan’s three most profitable films to date.
List of highest-grossing Indian films worldwide The popularity of the three Khans Baahubali: The Beginning (Which Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions released, but maybe didn’t have much to do with the production?) Franchise power versus star power Deepika Padukone, the secret weapon to box office success? Genre diversity and social issues Kick Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda, Nargis Fakhri The 100 Crore Club Salman Khan A controversial and divisive figure Jai Ho versus “Jai Ho” “Jumme Ki Ratt” and “Hangover” Kathy Gibson’s review in Access Bollywood

Bajrangi Bhaijaan Kareena Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Harshaali Malhotra Monkey God Hanuman Indo-Pakistani relations/ Hindu-Muslim relations Missing children in India and reliability of public institutions Superfluous romance Prem Ratan Dhan Payo Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh The Prisoner of Zenda Too many songs “Jab Tum Chaho” and “Prem Leela” Jodi: a perfect pairing Is Salman Khan Bollywood’s Elizabeth Taylor of Richard Burton?
