Salman Khan in a very candid interview, tells us why he is not yet ready for marriage despite being 48 years old already. He also reveals how good a father he can be, but when it comes to marriage, why he shies away.
Here is what he says: “First, I wanted to get married. Nahi hua and one by one everyone started getting married. One day Sanjay Dutt almost got me convinced about marriage. He said, ‘See, my ex-wife died. I really miss her. I have a beautiful child and she is with in-laws. I felt alone and got married to Rhea. I am saying this to you, as I want you to get married. I want you to settle down and be happy. It is like the most beautiful life. You think that once you get married, your other stuff will stop — women, party, drinks. It’s all shit. Once you come back home, you are tired, you have a glass of wine, have a candle-light dinner, so sweet it is, go for a walk, hold each other, go to sleep, hug her, kiss her, wake up in the morning. She makes breakfast. This is the kind of life’ and then suddenly, while he was talking to me, Rhea called. He said, f*** and got up. And I realised that all he told me was rubbish. I do want to have a child, but with child, the mother comes. And when the mother comes, big complications happen as I am not the husband material. I am the father type. It will be unfair for anyone to think that I will change him. I will not change. I sometimes feel surrogate type ka ho jaye, but then look how close we are to our mothers so when the kid grows up he or she will ask maa kaun? They will then think that my father for his own selfish reasons has kept us without a mother. And then my parents too would like to see my children. So it’s all very complex.”
