Salman Khan is probably the most commercially bankable actor currently in Bollywood. And probably the biggest reason for that is the craze that his fans have for him. It doesn’t even matter what he is doing on – screen, as long as he is in it, people will come in numbers to watch him.
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s Swag Se Swagat has officially become the most watched Hindi film song of all time on the popular video sharing website, YouTube. A few hours ago, it overtook Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor’s Nashe Is Chadh Gayi from Befikre. Nashe Si Chadh Gayi held the tag for the most viewed Hindi song on YouTube for well over a year now. Standing at 423 million views, it was clear that it would take something huge for another song to beat that number. And Swag Se Swagat did just that. An important reason for that is like Nashe Is Chadh Gayi, Swag Se Swagat too is a party number. And unsurprisingly, it is these groovy dance numbers that are always seen on the top of the charts. Another reason for why the song worked is that it brought the much loved pair, Salman and Katrina Kaif shaking a leg together. Swag Se Swagat’s views currently stand at 425 million views.
This song also had a portion in the start in which Salman Khan is seen rapping, something that we have never seen him do before.
On the work front, Salman Khan just launched the trailer of his next film Race 3 yesterday. Directed by Remo D’Souza, the film also stars Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala. The trailer has received mixed reactions so far but promises that the film will be one action packed ride. Race 3 will be hitting the screens on 15th June. Katrina will be next seen in Aanand L Rai’s Zero which also stars Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma.
