This is @BeingSalmanKhan's 33rd year in the industry. Let's go back to the history & analyse what the megastars of prior generation - Dilip kumar, Dharmendra & Amitabh did in their 3rd, 13th, 23rd, 33rd and 43rd year & then compare it to the modern day Greatest Salman. Image
#DilipKumar's 3rd year (1946): Rising with hit milan. Poised to be the no.1 star with HGOTY Jugnu in next year(1947) as the no.1 spot was vacant due to the sudden demise of K.L. Sehgal.

#Dharmendra's 3rd year(1962): Fast rising star with hits like Shola Aur Shabnam & Anpadh.
#AmitabhBachchan's 3rd Year(1971): Struggling for hits. Even the mild success came in the form of Anand which led by the then Boxoffice God Rajesh khanna.

#SalmanKhan's 3rd Year(1990): No.1 star with HGOTD ATBB MPK & Hit Baaghi. Poised for greater glory next year with 4 hits.
#DilipKumar's 13th year(1956): Already the Greatest Legend of BoxOffice till then. Naya Daur, Mughal-e-Azam & Ganga jamuna was waiting for him.

#Dharmendra's 13th year(1972): Rain of hits. Poised to replace khanna for the no.1 spot in 1973 which is the best year for any star.
#AmitabhBachchan's 13th year(1981): One Man industry with Rain of Blockbusters & Mega Grossers. But Slipping peak.

#SalmanKhan's 13th year(2000): No.1 star of Bollywood with 7 Hits in past 3 Years. Reached 15Hits Quickest from his Generation. Universal Pan-India Popularity.
#DilipKumar's 23rd Year(1966): Slipping down fast but flash-in-the-pan Blockbuster Ram Aur Shyam was waiting. Already the Greatest star till then.

#Dharmendra's 23rd year(1982): Out of Top3 after being no.1 star for 5 years & no.2 star for 5 Yrs. Still the Biggest star in North.
#AmitabhBachchan's 23rd year(1991): No.2 star after Salman khan though still got the Biggest market. On the brink of semi-retirement.

#SalmanKhan's 23rd year(2010): No.1 star with One Man Show Blockbuster/HGOTY Dabangg. Poised to become the no.1 to no.10 star in upcoming years.
#DilipKumar's 33rd Year(1976): Semi-retired after central triple role in Bairaag. The central character in mega-blockbuster kranti was waiting for him.

#Dharmendra's 33rd Year(1992): Still in Top5 stars with hits like elan-e-Jung & Tahelka. Was coming after dream Year in 1987.
#AmitabhBachchan's 33rd year(2001): Doing strong character roles in Big Blockbusters like K3G & Mohhabtein. But not as strong as Dilip kumar's Kranti, Vidhata, Karma.

#SalmanKhan's 33rd Year(2020): No.1 star by Distance. Nobody is even in the sight to challenge the Lordship.
#DilipKumar's 43rd Year(1986): No.3 star with HGOTY Karma. Following the HGOTYs Vidhata & Kranti. Greatest star till then.

#Dharmendra's 43rd year(2002): Forgotten completely.

#AmitabhBachchan's 43rd year(2011): Nothing good.

#SalmanKhan's 43rd Year - Yet to reach.
Megastar Salman khan is the only star who never had a single low point in his career. At each of the landmarks, he has been the no.1 star of his generation. Even the next strongest dilip kumar was feeling heat in his 33rd year but not Salman.
