“Marriage is a waste of money”- Salman Khan

"Marriage is a waste of money"- Salman Khan

Salman Khan has been in the news for quite some time now, especially with his recent Eid release – Tubelight. Though his film didn’t do magic at the cinemas this Eid, but Sallu bhai still couldn’t be avoided from becoming the talk of the town once again, and that too when it comes to making headlines for his equation with female partners and if, at all, he is getting married or not.

In a recent interview with leading media publication, when asked about the concept of marriage, he said:

“Now, say if someone comes and asks me something straight up, like this whole marriage shit. They’re really not interested, you know that. They just want to chhapo [stamp] that marriage thingy. That pisses me off. For me, I think marriage is a waste of money!”

He further went onto revealing that he doesn’t believe in love and it’s just about the word ‘need’. Khan said:

“I don’t believe in love at all. I don’t think there’s any reason for the word ‘love’ to exist. The word is ‘need’. It depends on whose need is more. Or who you might need at some point. But she may not need you at all. This can also turn the other way round when you don’t need her sometimes. So, basically, the need has got to be equal at all times, which may or may not happen.”

Adding more to it, he said:

“Then there is companionship, habit – that you’ve been together for so long – emotional connect, or the fact that both of you have flaws but you’re aware of the larger picture, and that you’re happy together. But ‘love’ is, essentially, need.”

51-year-old Salman Khan was also asked about the considerable change in his nature – from being aggressive to mellowing it down. And he responded back saying:

“I’m the same person. I still sit in rickshaws, walk, cycle – in fact, I just cycled here. There was, at one point in time, for whatever reason, a lot of negativity around me. I don’t know what I did to deserve that negativity. And I never spoke about it. Later on, things automatically started clearing out. Till today, I’m told I’m the most misunderstood person there is. It’s been 30 years that I’ve been here. How can I be misunderstood? If I’m indeed the most misunderstood still, then I might be the same person (that people think I am).”
