|Salman Khan may choose to keep tight-lipped about the matters of his heart, but his dad, the illustrious scriptwriter Salim Khan, is quite at ease discussing his 44-year-old son’s love life.
“There's a contradiction in Salman's character. He gets attracted to women from his industry only... his co-stars become his love interests. Once a relationship is established, he starts looking for his mom in them. Now that is not possible,” Salim told trade analyst Komal Nahta on ETC's show Bollywood Business.
Salim Khan added that it’s not possible for a girl to have the qualities that Salman’s mom has.
“A woman who has just started her career can't be doing stuff like preparing meals, washing clothes, preparing kids and yet lead the hectic life of a movie star! This expectation can't be met by a woman who has just started her film career...not even if she tries,” reasoned the 74-year-old scriptwriter.
Salman has so far been in relationships with different women, including Somy Ali, Sangeeta Bijlani, Aishwarya Rai and Katrina Kaif. Sadly, none of the affairs has culminated into marriage.
“Whenever girls have come into Salman's life, they are looking to be a movie star. So settling down is the last thing on their minds. So the relationships reach a saturation point and then fizzle out,” Salim Khan said.
