MUMBAI: There is continued interest in the Indian film world on when actor Salman Khan will get married, but the Bollywood star is in no hurry and can’t understand why everyone is so curious.
Reacting to fellow actor Aamir Khan’s comment that it is high time Salman should tie the knot, the 46-year-old said: “Aamir has been after me for this for a while now. I don’t understand why everyone is after me to get married?”
In his current Yash Raj Films (YRF) project, directed by Kabir Khan, Salman will be seen with former girlfriend Katrina Kaif. Even in the film’s trailer, Katrina has a line telling Salman’s character that he has reached an age where he should finally get married.
When the film’s director Kabir Khan was asked if the Salman-Katrina dialogue about marriage was included deliberately in Ek Tha Tiger, he said, “No, we have not done this deliberately. Since I have Katrina and Salman in the movie I couldn’t resist having this,” he said on a lighter note.
When asked about her thoughts on Salman’s marriage, Katrina said: “I think nobody else except Salman should decide at what age he wants to get married,” at a promotional event of Ek Tha Tiger reported the Hindustan Times.
She said the 46-year old can get married whenever he pleases.
