But Salman has gone a step further. He has put his head on the chopping block by campaigning for candidates from two rival parties - the BJP and the Congress. And here's how he did it.
Salman Khan struck his name off Sanjay Dutt's list of friends by turning a blind eye to Sanjay's support of Samajwadi Party candidate Abu Asim Azmi. Instead, he went campaigning for Priya Dutt. Dressed in a white sweatshirt, white-rimmed shades and a ponytail, Salman rode in an open van with the Congress MP in Mumbai's North Central constituency.
Salman also took nearly three hours out of his schedule to give his thumbs up to Milind Deora, the Congress candidate from South Mumbai constituency. Clad in a green T-shirt this time, the actor brought traffic to a standstill in the bylanes of Bhendi Bazaar and Nagpada.
He made his support for the Congress crystal clear when, a little while earlier, he campaigned for Congress candidate Anu Tandon in Unnao, UP, and went so far as to declare that Rahul Gandhi was India's future leader.
But we think his brains were addled by too much time in the sun. Why? Well, because on April 11, Salman went all out to support Bollywood star and BJP nominee, Vinod Khanna, in Gurdaspur, Punjab!
Is he trying to bring about a hung Parliament single-handedly? Salman needs to hire a political consultant. Pronto.
