Salman Khan is probably the most eligible bachelor in town, since he happens to be unmarried at 50 years old. His recent films have been a resounding success at the box office, with Bajrangi Bhaijaan raking in astronomical amounts at the box office and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo also grossed more than Rs 400 crore. However, that isn’t the only cause for celebration, for the Bollywood actor as of late. A couple of days back, Salman Khan was acquitted from all charges related to the 2002 hit-and-run case.
This certainly frees up the actor from a lot of worries, since he had been embroiled in the case well over 13 years. According to some people, Salman has finally decided to end his bachelor days and get married! These statements were given by director Subhash Gai:-
“The case had an impact on his personal life. He could have married at 34. Now he is 50,” he said. “Salman has been facing the punishment for 13 years. He did not marry as the case was pending. This is an accident in which a person got killed but has anyone thought of the punishment he is facing. I am proud of our judiciary, the justice has been done.”
“Every time his parents raised the question of his marriage, Salman would turn around to say, ‘What would I tell my wife if the court cases go against me? What would she tell our child? That the father is in jail?’ Salman wanted to be out of the legal tangles before marrying. Now that the verdict is out in his favour, the coast is clear for his marriage,” he said.
So will it come to be? Will Salman Khan actually recite wedding vows, now that he knows he has successfully evaded long jail-time?
