Initial Stages and Cola Career –
During his first few years as an ambassador, Salman had advertised for brands such as Limca, Campa Cola, Honda Bikes and Double Bull shirts.

This helped him lay the platform to a long and successful endorsement journey that still reigns strong to this day.
Even after Salman made it big, he was always interested in promoting his own self as a brand and this catapulted the likes of Thums Up and more to sign him up in 2002, till their contract was completed. After that, he signed with soft drink brand Mountain Dew till 2010 and reverted back to Thums Up and completed a second successful stint.
