Superstar Salman Khan has seen an amazing year. His stunning performance of a resilient and undeterred wrestler in 'Sultan' has won the hearts of the audience.

If his fan following wasn't the size of a mammoth earlier, it got multiplied after 'Sultan'. His stardom is reaching new heights with each day.

But irrespective of what characters he plays, Prem is undoubtedly the most loved character Salman has played on screen. Just like the names Raj/Rahul became synonymous with Shah Rukh Khan and Vijay with Amitabh Bachchan., Prem defined Salman Khan.

The shyness that came with the character Prem was well portrayed by ‘Dabangg' Salman Khan. It all started with ‘Maine Pyar Kiya' in which Salman was cast opposite actress Bhagyashree. The sweet love story of two childhood friends and their ordeal struck a chord with the audiences.

Before Salman donned the Prem avatar in ‘Hum Aapke Hai Koun..!', he did it in the cult comic movie ‘Andaz Apna Apna' which released the same year.

For those who believe in good luck and charm, Prem has definitely been that for Salman Khan. He broke the shy image associated with the character and took it to another level in the movie, ‘No Entry'. The Prem of the 1999 release, ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain', who was the momma's boy and worshipped his elder brother, was nowhere to be seen in this one where he was a womanizer and gave lessons on infidelity.
