Did Shakespeare once say, What’s in a name? Well, unfortunately i will have to agree because here I am talking about name Radhe. This one word surely means a lot in Salman Khan’s film career. Whenever he has been found down in the dumb, this name has rescued him twice. Fans have also come to associate this name with Sallu Bhai.
If we go back to previous decade, Salman was having some amazing chemistry with the name Prem that worked so well for him in Sooraj Barjatya’s movies. Remember, Maine Pyar Kia, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and Hum Saath Saath Hain? All three were super-duper hits and all of them had Salman in lead roles with the name Prem. Quite a lucky name for him, huh? The name Prem revealed his soft side, his image of a lover boy and nedless to say, it just by chance or design but yeah, it worked for him.
Prem gave way to Radhe when he had this name in blockbuster Tere Naam. In fact, such was the popularity of that character and its hair style that even today, males can be found with characteristic middle parting hair style that Salman wore in that movie. This hairstyle is still known as Radhe Hairstyle. The interesting thing is before the release of Tere Naam, Salman was going through some torried time both personally as well as professionally. He had given string of flops including Yeh Hai Jalwa, Tumko Na Bhool Payenge, Kahin Pyar Na Ho Jaye and Chal Mere Bhai etc. Tere Naam broke the jinx and Radhe worked.
This time again, Salman was going through string of flops like Baabul, God Tussi Great Ho, Yuvraaj and Salaam-E-Ishq when Wanted happened. This movie has truck gold mines at the box office and no prizes for guessing, his name in the movie is Radhe again. Hopefully, Salman continues his successful journey with London Dreams and other movies.
