Why does the M-word scare most Bollywood celebrities?

Is marriage really that important? I mean, what’s all the fuss about the word “marriage”?

Bollywood star Salman Khan
Bollywood’s most eligible bachelor, Salman Khan is being pressurized by the whole nation to tie the knot. But our dude is very happy with his single status and is in no hurry to get married. As of now, marriage is no where in the actor’s priority list.

Recently, the Dabangg star had revealed that he would love to have babies without getting married. This is what he said in his own words: “I don’t know about marriage, but if there is any way to have kids without getting married, I am interested in that. I am still trying to find a way to do that.”

Saif and Kareena
Well, its not alone Sallu Bhai who is against marriage. Many Bollywood stars feel the same. Kareena Kapoor, who is now the Begum of Pataudi, decided to enter the holy matrimony with Saif only after a long and detailed deliberation. In fact, marriage is just a piece of paper (legal) to Bebo. During her courtship days with the Khan, Kareena had said, “It’s no big deal, really. We both have managed it for the past five years, and hopefully we’ll manage it for the next 25 also.”

Pareeniti Chopra
Marriage has lost its meaning in today’s generation. Unlike the olden days, one doesn’t really need a marriage certificate to cohabit. Parineeti Chopra says, “I’m totally cool with live-in relationships. If you are in a relationship it is normal to meet your partner when the day ends. If you’re tired, you’ll end up sleeping in his house and return to yours in the morning. Even if you do that three or four times a week – that for me is a live-in relationship.”

Apparently, most people have a wrong perception on celebrities signing the marriage certificate. “Once you’re married, you’re filmy career is doomed”, that’s what’s perceived in B-town. Reacting to such statements, Bebo said on the opening day of FICCI Frames 2013, “If a girl loves someone or gets married, it doesn’t mean that people will not love her or her character onscreen. These (films and marriage) are two different aspects and we should not try and club them. Anyway, falling in love or getting married is not a crime!”

So readers, what do you think? Is it right to blame the holy matrimony for a celebrity’s downfall in her/his film career?
