It has turned out to be one memorable year for the actor as his latest release 'Dabangg 2' is doing exceptionally well at the box office and has reportedly collected Rs 100.78 crores in just 6 days. His Eid release 'Ek Tha Tiger' this year is already a member of Rs 100 crore club.
The actor, who was scheduled to appear before a magistrate's court today in connection with 2002 hit-and-run case, got a relief as the Metropolitan court granted him an exemption from appearing before it on his birthday. Director brother Arbaaz Khan posted on Twitter, "A Happy Birthday Salman ! Wish you good health and happiness always.
Thanks for being a great brother. Love you." "Wishing Salman Khan the super duper star a very Happy Birthday and many more to come.. God bless!," posted Prabhudeva. Karan Johar, who worked with Salman in 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', posted, "Happy birthday Salman Khan... May the force be with you...always!! Have a blessed year..." It seems after the back-to-back success of 'Dabangg' and its sequel 'Dabangg 2', Salman's eccentric character Chulbul Pandey has become synonymous with his name.
His 'Dabangg' co-star Sonakshi Sinha wrote, "Happy birthday Pandeyji. Actress Sonal Chauhan tweeted, "Here's wishing Pandey ji Salman Khan a rocking birthday!!! And a lot more happiness and success in the coming year." "Salman Khan. Naam bahut sune hum tumhara... Happy B'day chulbul pandeyji (sic)," said co-star Sonu Sood.
"Happy B'day Salman Khan, many many happy returns of the day," posted Mallika Sherawat. "Happy b'day Salman Khan ! Have a great one!," posted Divya Dutta. "Happy birthday Salman Khan ... Simply the best !," said Neha Dhupia. The birthday boy also took to Twitter to thank his fans and friends. He posted, "Thank you for all your wishes."
