Fans Remember Salman Shah in His 27th Death Anniv

September 6, 2023 marks the 27th year since Salman Shah, also known as the Prince of Dhallywood, passed away. On this day in 1996, he left behind his countless fans, friends, and family, leaving them in sorrow.

Exactly 27 years ago, Salman Shah passed away under mysterious circumstances at his residence in Eskaton, Dhaka. The enigma surrounding this event remains unresolved. Despite investigations conducted in stages and reports being submitted, neither the actor's family nor his fans have found satisfaction in the outcomes. This is because these reports consistently attribute Salman Shah's death to suicide, a conclusion his mother, Nila Chowdhury, steadfastly refuses to accept.

However, there continues to be uncertainty regarding whether Salman Shah's passing was a suicide or a murder. Nevertheless, even after all these years since his demise, his popularity has not waned in the slightest.

In the midst of the ongoing legal battle, this year, we've seen several portrayals of Salman Shah in the media. Notably, AI-generated images of him gained widespread attention, leading to debates among online users. Furthermore, a web series, said to be inspired by his life, was launched this year. Additionally, his initial film with Shabnur was re-released in theaters on February 10. While his fans welcomed the tribute, his family strongly objected to the use of his images on religious grounds. As a result, the user had to remove the post.
