Leading Bollywood star Salman Khan celebrated his 50th birthday with much pomp and show. The Big Boss host who was recently acquitted in a 13-year old hit-and-run case, has over the years acquired a larger-than-life image.
The actor, who still feels quite young at heart said on the occasion: "I think I am turning 27. I think 27-year-old is the right age. I have always liked that age. I am not scared about ageing. It is always going to be 27. So what is there to be scared of? It is a part of my journey."
On his 50th birthday IBTimes UK takes a look at 10 of his most memorable movies:
Hum Aapke Hain Kaun - (English: Who am I to You) - 1994

One of the biggest commercially successful movies of not just Khan's career, but the Indian film industry as a whole, it depicts the sacrifice made by two lovers for the sake of their families. The family drama starring Khan and Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit, was the first Hindi film to gross over Rs1bn ($15m) at the box office.
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam - (I Have Given My Heart Away Darling) - 1999

The love triangle starring Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Ajay Devgan inspired by the German novel Immense, was in the news for being Khan's last film with Rai, who he was dating at that time. The film gave Khan the credit for being 'bankable', a tag he would go on to carry for a long time.
Maine Pyaar Kiya - (I Have Loved) - 1989

This was the first film that brought Khan commercial success and made him a rising star. The innocent love story of two young lovers caught in family traditions made Khan a heartthrob among women. It was the top grossing Bollywood film that year garnering .3m.
Saajan - (Beloved) - 1991

A young Khan played second fiddle in the movie along with Bollywood's established actors Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt but stole hearts with his charming performance. A few years later the romantic pair would go on to make the very successful Hum Aapke Hain Kaun.
Andaaz Apna Apna - (Every One has their own style) - 1994

The movie marked Khan's entry into comedy along with fellow Bollywood star Aamir Khan. Even though the movie was an average grosser at the box office, it has emerged as a cult film over the years. The two have never worked together thereafter.
Hum Saath Saath Hain - (We are all together) - 1999

After the big success of Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, its director Sooraj Barjatya once again collaborated with Khan along with a host of Bollywood actors to deliver yet another family saga about the bond of joint families in India. The film did not taste success like their previous collaboration but was a hit in its own right.
