Salman Khan has been in the news (but when is he not?) because of the rumours surrounding his marriage to Iulia Vantur. At an event yesterday, Salman revealed he will announce his wedding, as and when it happens through social media. But in this interview to Mumbai Mirror, he opened up a little more about this piece of gossip. Here’s what he had to say –

On rumours that he’s getting married this year –

These are just rumours as you said yourself. If I had got engaged or was getting married, I wouldn’t wait for the news to leak out. I would announce it myself, it would be a proud moment for me, thode hi main chup rahoonga like those yesteryear stars who hid their wives thinking that it would lessen their fan following. I know the whole country would be happy for me.

On making an appearance with Iulia at Preity Zinta and Gene Goodenough’s reception –

Was I with her or was she with my sister (Alvira)? I ran away in front. I don’t want to keep the press so busy. My private life may be national news but it’s not that important.

On wanting a child more than a wife –

Yes, I’d like to have a child but the problem with that is with the child the mother comes along. If I can avoid the mother and have a child I wouldn’t mind two or three. Tell me, if there’s a solution. If it has to happen, it will. It might just happen one night, I’ll wake up in the morning to the thought, ‘ho gayi hai, ab jhelo isse! *laughs*

And finally, on all the lovely women who’d love to be Mrs. Khan –

That’s the problem, there are lots of lovely women around. You said it. Hey, I’m just kidding, life is beautiful and I would be happy if marraige happened. And if it doesn’t…*shrugs*

This marriage announcement tweet (whenever it comes) will be one the most important one in the history of social media now.
