Salman's love for children is evident when he interacts with his nephew Ahil and niece Ayat, children of his sister Arpita Khan and her husband, actor Aayush Sharma. Earlier this year, a video was shared on Instagram in which Salman grooved to the song Allah Duhaai Hai from his film Race 3 and encouraged the children to dance with him.

Speaking with Mumbai Mirror in 2019, Salman had reacted when said that he loved children. The actor had said, "(Smiles) I want children, but with children comes the mother. I don’t want the mother, but they need one. But I have a whole village to take care of them. Maybe I can work out a win-win situation for everyone."
