The climax scene in Wanted still remains to be one of the widely appreciated plot twists in Bollywood. While we believed that Salman’s character Radhe is a local goon with a kind heart, it was in the climax that we realized he was an ‘undercover cop’ on a mission. Donning his police uniform, Salman Khan emerged as Rajveer Shekhawat in the climax.

The fight sequence in the climax still gives the fans a thrilling experience. Salman’s great performance deserves to be appreciated.

And his superiors had appointed a commendable cop to catch Devil, who is none other than Devi Laal (Salman Khan) himself. Though Salman did not play a cop in the film, it becomes one in the end.
