Daisy Shah

Daisy made her debut with Jai Ho in 2014. Before her acting career she was back a dancer for many movies like Tere Naam (2003), Masti (2004, Humko Deewana Kar Gaye (2006) and Department (2010). During the shooting of Dabangg, Salman spotted her during a song as a back dancer and wanted her to play the role of Kareena Kapoor’s friend in Bodyguard, which didn’t happen.

Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi didn’t really need Salman to launch her as her father is part of the Indian cinema industry. However, Salman saw her spark and made her the lead character for Dabangg in 2010. Before shooting for this movie, she was advised to lose her weight to suit her character.

Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi

Salman launched both these artists with his movie Hero in 2015. They both have strong film background because of their fathers but Salman was the one who made their debut. Salman helped Sooraj, when he was in a controversy for the murder of Jiah Khan, more than a year before it was released.

Aayush Sharma

Many people knew that Aayush Sharma will be launched by Salman without any doubt, as Aayush is Salman’s sister Arpita’s husband. He was recently launched through the movie Loveyatri, which released this month (October, 2018).

Arjun Kapoor

Arjun, the son of famous Indian producer Boney Kapoor came into the industry because of Salman. Arjun also admitted that he is in the industry and successful because of Salman. Salman supported and encouraged him to work on his weight and give acting a go. Arjun made his debut in Bollywood with Ishaqzaade in 2012.
