LIFESTYLE DESK: Salman Khan has yet again responded to questions on when he was finally planning to get married.
The question that has kept pretty much the entire country looking for an answer for many years now, is when is Salman Khan finally getting married. On his part, Salman’s answers have almost always been shrouded in mystery.
From hearing Salman say that he doesn’t know the answer, to he saying maybe the ongoing year, we have been through it all. This time too, Bhai had an equally vague (but probably somewhat better) answer.
Speaking about his marriage, the superstar, who just wrapped up Tiger Zinda Hai and began shooting for Race 3, said, “Woh mere paas uska koi jawab nahi hai, mujhe iss baat se bahut khushi hoti hai ki bahut sare logo ko meri shaadi ki chinta hai, pareshani hai, lekin mujhe hairat yeh hoti hai ke meri shaadi se inka kya faayda hoga. Toh aisa koi jawab hai hi nahi, haan ka bhi nahi, naa ka bhi nahi, maybe ka bhi nahi, lekin jis waqt hogi, hogi, nahi hogi toh nahi hogi. Main bahut khush hoon, main bahut zyaada khush hoon (I am happy about the fact that people are concerned about my wedding, but it makes me wonder what good will it to do to the people who are so concerned about my marriage. I don’t have an answer; neither yes, nor no or maybe. If it happens, it will happen. If it doesn’t, then it won’t. I am very happy, very very happy. Seriously)!”
RUMOURS AND MORE RUMOURS
Every year, rumours of Salman’s wedding have done the rounds of the internet, only to fizzle out and die. Even Aamir Khan, Salman’s industry colleague and friend, joked a few months ago that he would have to tie Salman’s hands and feet to make him take the saat pheras.
To that, Salman’s tongue-in-cheek answer was, “Yes, I have read somewhere that Aamir wants to make me get married and is read to tie my hands and feet. I can only retort that I have also decided to tie his hands and feet to see to it that he does not get married a third time in his life.” Aamir was married to Reena Dutta from 1986 to 2002. After his divorce from Reena, he tied the knot with Kiran Rao in 2005.
THE ROYAL MRS KHAN
As for Salman, he is rumoured to be dating Romanian TV host Iulia Vantur. Back in her country, tabloids have been calling her Mrs Khan for a few years now. ‘Doamna Khan’, is how Romanian tabloid Click once spoke of Iulia. Roughly translated to English, ‘Doamna Khan’ means ‘royal Mrs Khan’.
ONLY AFTER VERDICTS FROM THE COURTS
In 2015, after the Bombay High Court acquitted Salman of all charges in his 2002 hit-and-run case, there was strong speculation that he would finally tie the knot in 2016.
In an interview on TV a few years ago, Salman had said that he would ‘think about marrying only after the courts give their verdicts’. As for the answer to what if the verdicts from the courts went against him, the actor said, then he would marry only after being released from jail.
NO GOODBYE TO BACHELORHOOD
Well, 2015 flowed into 2016 and as we almost bid goodbye to 2017, Salman Khan, arguably the country’s most famous, most eligible bachelor, doesn’t seem too eager to let go of his bachelorhood.
