He has only finger counting hits, rest are either flop or disaster. And definitely not bigger than Sallu & SRK. In 90s apart from Sallu & SRK, Ajay Devgan, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar was super famous.
I did some research on Sanjay Dutt box office track record after watching Sanju movie. Sanjay Dutt has somewhere around 35 to 40 or slightly more hits to his credit, and some 60 to 70 flops/disasters. But in spite of so many washouts, he has been having a good mass fan following thanks to some cult movies like Vaastav, Munna Bhai series and his controversial off-screen life.

Coming to his stardom, he got very big break in the initial part of his career, his debut Rocky directed by his father was a hit and Vidhaata with Superstar Dilip Kumar was a blockbuster. He followed it up with some flops and few average hits and he became a tier 3 action hero of 80s. Between mid to late 80s he had few big hits like Naam (blockbuster), Thaanedaar and quite a few small scale hits, until he became an A-list actor in 1991 through blockbuster movie Saajan with Salman Khan, followed by few hits.

He was arrested post Mumbai blasts in 1993 and his arrest created a sensational wave of controversy in Bollywood. Just 3 months after his arrest & subsequent release among ongoing controversies, Khalnayak released to a record breaking opening and was a box office sensation. Few subsequent movies got big openings due to his controversial image, like Aatish which had huge craze.

Later on he didn't maintain consistency in box office and gave many flops but now and then he made good comebacks like in 1999 when he came back with 4 hits in a year. In spite of many flops he got some cult hits like Vaastav (his best movie) & Munna Bhai movies through which he sustained, along with few multi starrer hits in last 15 odd years.

Btw coming to 90s, Sunny Deol and Govinda were the biggest Superstars followed by Ajay Devgan, Akshay Kumar, Suneil Shetty all action heroes who were ruling before the rise of Khans. Sunny Deol stardom was next level. He was simply unstoppable till Gadar.
