What's Nice

In 2011, Salmaan signed on for debutante Srinath Rajendran's Second Show (2012) in which he played the role of Harilal, a gangster. When asked in an interview about his "unconventional entry with a bunch of newcomers", Salmaan stated that it was his conscious decision as he felt that " ... when an actor debuts, he has to earn the right to be a hero and not get it through a shortcut route." The film received mixed reviews. A critic for Sify stated, " ... it is Salmaan's amazing screen presence and a matured acting style that makes the movie an engaging watch", while Paresh C Palicha of Rediff criticised his performance. "There is no denying that he looks dapper and has an attractive baritone (a gift of his gene pool). But that does not translate into good performance or acting." The film was commercially successful and won him the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut.
