You must be willing to know why Salman is so popular even though he is always surrounded by so many controversies and his statements have always made headlines, whether good or bad.
Have a look at some of the public statements from the general public from a leading social media.
Nimesh Kiran Verma, Bollywood movies are like women.. Made for being loved, not to be understood..
As quoted by Salman himself once
“I can get caught in many things but there is one thing I will never get caught in, and that is acting – because I don’t act. On screen I am like I am in real life.”

Bollywood is a film industry that doesn’t necessarily operate on sheer talent (though I will agree with the points made by Vishwanath Pratap Singh about Salman’s impressive performances). It is usually the actor’s with the best charisma that end up on top, and I must say that Salman Khan has used his charisma throughout the decades to garner fans for himself in many ways.
In the late 80’s and early 90’s, Salman obtained many female fans with his pretty boy looks and romantic hero image in films such as Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Aapke Hain Kaun.

I agree that Salman is not a great actor but to say that the guy can’t act would be a gross understatement. He has done some really good critically acclaimed movies:
Chori Chori Chupke Chupkes.
Hum dil De Chuke Sanam
While Khamoshi was directorial debut of Sanjay Leela bhansali the other two were both critcally acclaimed and hits. And mind you Sanjay Leela Bhansali does not make movies with morons the guys got taste.
Now, to answer your question that why is he so popular…hmmm
Salman Khan represents the wildest fantasies of modern youth. I’ll explain how…
He is someone every guy wants to be and someone every girl desires to be with. Dude you are unmarried at 45 and had former Miss World Ashwarya Rai and Katreena Kaif as your girl friends!!! …Aap Stud Hain!!!! .
Now kids in puberty want to grow up as a man like him.
Wannabes in 20s just admire him and spend half of their daytime on gym machines.
Uncles in 30s just wish they hadn’t married their Aishwarya so that they would have got their chances on Katrina.
