Everything Salman Khan says makes it to the headlines, and when he talks about his former girlfriend, Katrina Kaif, or his marriage plans, there is a rumble in the industry.
Like it did when the Bajrangi Bhaijan spoke at length on Tuesday about Kaif, his wedding plans and much more while interacting with his fans during a visit to Mumbai’s Manoharbhai Patel Institute of Engineering College (Gondia).
As the crowd started shouting shaadi-shaadi, Salman said, “Do you see the sweat on my forehead? You won’t find it on anyone else’s forehead because the weather is good here. When it comes to marriage, I am doubtful. But I want to have three or four kids. Now I know without marriage kids are difficult to get but I will manage it. Pehle umar nahi tha shaadi ka aur ab umar paas ho chuka hai and I am happy.”
He was much more forthcoming on the subject of Katrina Kaif. When told that Kaif credits her success to him, Salman ‘blushed’ and said, “Did Katrina say that? This is her ‘badapan’, but she is lying. Whatever she is she is because of Katrina Kaif itself.”
“Katrina is very hard working …in my whole life I have not seen such a hard working girl ever… she is India’s big star for you all, but according to me she is ‘hamaal’ (coolie), ek majdoor hai …that many efforts she actually takes…you people should learn from her,” entertainment website Business of Cinema quoted the star as saying.
The 50-year-old actor added that Katrina learnt ‘how to do hard efforts’ from him.
He went on explaining how he casually happened to meet Katrina and her recent break up with Ranbir Kapoor has nothing to do with it. “Fitoor, she is promoting her film Fitoor and I do a show Bigg Boss. She came for the promotions there. Later, on she was on Krushna’s show and I was shooting nearby for Sultan. I thought that I should go and meet her.”
He added that he simply wanted to meet Katrina and leave. “I thought they (show producers) will cut the scene but channel won’t cut it as they got the footage of Salman Khan with Katrina Kaif. Poor Aditya was just standing there,” he added.
