Salman Khan's answer to shaadi kab karoge is always the same. Not this time

India Today logo India Today 25-05-2019

Salman Khan, it appears, is pretty much accustomed to the wedding question by now as much are those who are impatiently waiting for his definite answer. Aap shaadi kab kar rahe hain, is a question that Salman is invariably asked every single time ahead of the release of his films. And much to his fans' dismay, Salman has a set response - a statement line that almost everybody in desperate need of his answer is tired of hearing. But this time, there was a difference - a slight one, though. But still better.

While discharging promotional duties for his Eid release Bharat, Salman responded to the shaadi waala sawaal by plugging in a subject of national interest, and why not, might we ask if his wedding is made into a subject of national concern. "I think I should announce it on May 23," Salman told a daily, when asked about his wedding plans.

Do you see the difference? If not, we'll elaborate. To begin with, Salman's answer wasn't repetitive. In jest of course, his response came ahead of the results of the Lok Sabha elections. Hence, the reference. Otherwise, his answer is same old - that he will announce his marriage when the "time is right". That statement, for almost a decade, has been Salman's staple answer. This time, though, it was a humorous take with a reference to the general election results.

In 2016, Salman, tired of incessant gossip over his wedding, requested the press to refrain from speculating, adding that he will "tweet" about it after the decision is made. Apart from this, Salman's answers to the shaadi question also often involve a slight hint of sarcasm - insinuating his irritation, in all probabilty, to the FAQs posed at him at frequent intervals. In 2017, Salman, one of the highest paid actors in the film fraternity, had told a daily, "I don't have money," adding that marriage according to him is a "waste of money".

That's about it, then.

At 53, Salman Khan is termed as an 'eligible bachelor' in Bollywood - his romantic history isn't quite pleasing though, considering his controversial affairs and a rather tainted image of him as an apparently 'abusive partner'. Over the past few years, Salman has been associated on the personal front with Romanian actress Iulia Vantur but rumours died down soon after. On the other hand, a certain section maintains that Salman still holds Katrina Kaif pretty close to his heart. Co-stars of films Yuvvraj, Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai and their upcoming Bharat, Salman and Katrina apparently dated for a couple of years. No official word on that though, very obviously.

Cut to 2019. Salman, asked to elaborate on the wedding question 'seriously', told the daily about his plans but don't get excited because he said, "Not for some time."

He went on to say that he wanted children, but did not want their mother. "I want children, but with children comes the mother. I don't want the mother, but they need one. But I have a whole village to take care of them. Maybe I can work out a win-win situation for everyone," said the actor in the same interview.

Well, well. If that's how Salman Khan wants it to be, so be it. We aren't looking for an answer to the shaadi question and we suggest you shouldn't as well - 'not for some time' at the very least.
