Salim Khan says son ‘lacks courage to get married’

In a resurfaced clip from a 2019 interview with Komal Nahta, Salim Khan, the veteran screenwriter and father of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, opened up about the reasons behind his son’s prolonged bachelorhood. Salim’s candid remarks shed light on Salman’s personal life and his reservations about marriage.

During the interview, Salim discussed his son’s hesitation towards marriage, attributing it to a lack of courage. “He easily enters into relationships, but he lacks the courage to get married,” said the superstar’s father. “He has a very simple nature and gets attracted easily. However, he always wonders whether the woman can manage a family like his mother does.”

Salim emphasised the high standards Salman holds for his future wife, drawing a comparison to his own wife and Salman’s mother. He further illustrated that the Dabangg envisions a wife who would be as dedicated to her husband and children as his mother was—a standard that is challenging to meet in today’s times.

Salim elaborated on these expectations, stating, “He wants the woman he marries to be dedicated to her husband and children, just like his mother was. She should cook meals for the children, help them get ready, and ensure their homework is done. However, this is not easy in today’s times.”

These insights into Salman’s personal life offer a rare glimpse into the internal struggles and familial influences that shape his decisions. Known for his illustrious career and numerous relationships, Salman’s bachelor status has always been a topic of intrigue and speculation.

The resurfaced clip has reignited discussions about the Ek Tha Tiger actor’s personal life and the societal expectations placed on relationships and marriage. It also underscores the generational gap in perceptions of marriage and the evolving nature of family dynamics in modern times.

Salman continues to be one of Bollywood’s most eligible bachelors, and while fans and media speculate about his personal choices, it’s clear that his decision not to marry stems from deeply held values and expectations influenced by his family background and upbringing.
