Those who were surprised at seeing Salman Khan break down at Sooraj Barjatya's cousin Rajjat's memorial service don't know how close Salman is to the entire Barjatya family. A close friend of the actor says, "Sooraj represents everything that is good kind and humane in Salman. From the time they made their debut as leading man and director in Maine Pyar Kiya, they've shared a very spiritual relationship. Although they're the same age, Bhai looks up to Soorajji and regards his father with the same respect as his own. Yes, their friendship struck a rough patch during Hum Saath Saath Hain (when the black buck incident happened). But that's in the past now.

At one point while doing interviews for the Indian release of the Bollywood film “Sultan,” its lead actor, Salman Khan, compared the exhaustion of his physical training to a raped woman. He was skewered by the media and the public for about half a minute. That’s about average for Khan: This is the man who, last May, was finally convicted of his 2002 hit and run of a homeless man, only to be let out on a $500 bail two days later so that he could resume filming. Thanks to a 25-year career featuring some of the biggest hits in Hindi cinema history — including “Maine Pyar Kiya,” and “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun” — he now pulls in a steady $40 million paycheck for his gigs along with a continent-spanning following that surpasses most American stars.
