Is Salman Khan An Unlucky Charm For Newbies?

Bollywood’s Superstar Salman Khan had introduced many actors and actresses into the acting industry and only a few of them have managed to shine well and show their jalwa. And the latest addition to the list are Mohnish Bahl’s daughter Pranutan Bahl and Salman’s friend’s son Zaheer Iqbal. However, this duo too failed to impress the audiences as their film ‘Notebook’ did not do wonders at the box-office.

“Most of Salman’s films have done well in recent times barring Tubelight and Race 3. But the content of these films launching newcomers leaves a lot to be desired. A lot of bhai’s films have lacked content but did well because of his personal star power. But that has not translated in terms of the box-office as his fans have not rushed to see these films,” says a trade source.

But on the other-hand, Karan Johar who is actually a producer and a son of the famous producer, Yash Johar had introduced several successful newbies like – Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan, Janhvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khattr, and now Tara Sutaria and Ananya Pandey. “Salman is an actor-turned-producer whereas Karan, being the son of a producer, understands the dynamics a lot more and is thoroughly involved in the process of filmmaking. Newcomers need training and grooming in the right manner before they are launched and he does that thoroughly,” says another trade analyst.
