What’s His Real Height: Pictures Of Bollywood Actor Salman Khan Looking Ridiculously Tall

Fun India

Salman Khan can take off his shirts anytime, anywhere he wants but there is one thing he can’t probably do – ‘taking off his shoes’.
How tall is King Salman Khan? Is he among the tallest actors in Bollywood? What would be his real height without shoes, we can only guess. Did he have a height surgery?

Whatever his real height is, it really fits his profile of a Bollywood star. He is often spotted wearing high ankle elevator shoes which help him elevate himself above the rest and maintain his status of a high celebrity.

Salman is little bit taller than Bollywood’s shortest lead actor Aamir Khan but with the help of his magic shoes, technology, and a little bit of camera tricks, he can actually look much taller than the rest of us.

Here are eight photos of Salman Khan transforming him from a short man to a tall man.

According to one biography, he is 5 feet 7.1 inches high (internet says Salman Khan’s height in feet is 5′ 8½”). Some other sources claim that he is ‎5ft 8in (173 cm). Where is the truth?
