Salman Khan wants a daughter
Actor Salman Khan, who is shooting for his film Jai Ho, has managed to take out time to create awareness for the Girl Child, Women Empowerment programme, and says if he ever has a child he hopes it is a girl. "If I ever have a child... Insh'allah I will... I wish its a girl. I want a girl child," Salman said at the press conference for the social cause. Salman Khan is supporting the cause along with Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, who is in India for 10 days for the awareness programme, and Sanjana Jon.
"How can you kill a child even before its birth... It's not about awareness, it's about your mentality. If you kill the girl child eventually there will be no mothers and sisters and guys will have no women to marry. Women play a huge role in our lives."
The actor further revealed that his two sisters take better care of his parents than him and his brothers.
"Women are ruling today... How can they be a burden? In my family I have two sisters and they take care of my parents more than any of us. I am glad I have two sisters."
The actor further said, "I don't want to join politics but I will definitely join some social cause. Politics for me is social work... If a man takes care of his constituency that's social work."
Salman and his Being Human foundation has been actively involved with various social causes.
