Salman Khan debuted in Bollywood in 1988 but almost 5 years later, in 1993 the actor got a chance to pair up with the first female superstar of Bollywood, Sridevi!
In 1993 and 1994, Salman Khan and Sridevi's Chandra Mukhi and Chaand Kaa Tukdaa released. Both these films had huge expectations for they were pairing up for the very first time.
Salman romanced Sridevi who was 2 years older than him in two films out of which Chandra Mukhi was a flop and Chaand Kaa Tukdaa generated Rs 13 crores at that time itself (Box Office Info from Wikipedia).
What many people do not know is that, Salman Khan was also the co-writer of Chandra Mukhi and the story was his idea. But a lot of people felt that the movie was very similar to 1990 Telugu supernatural-fantasy film, Jagadeka Veerudu Atiloka Sundari.
Sridevi was already a star by the time Salman got a opportunity to work with her, she had entered the film industry as a child artist and managed to work in various languages and become a star in each of those industries.
Owing to their good looks, they made a fantastic pair on-screen and shared a sizzling chemistry too. Salman may have not worked with Sridevi there after but he continues to be her family friend and has high regards for her.
When the actress's comeback movie, English Vinglish released and people questioned her on how she chooses her film, she said, "It's the script that should appeal. Script is the hero. Of course, there is a different category now like Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan - their aura itself works for them. Besides that, each picture should have a strong script."
We hope that some director takes a look at these flashback pictures and casts them in a movie soon for this is one pair we would definitely like to see on-screen.
