Salman Khan: Marriage is a waste of money; don’t think there’s any reason for the word ‘love’ to exist

Salman khan has been in news for his latest film, Tubelight. The film didn’t receive a warm welcome from both the critics and the viewers. Not just his films and controversies, Salman has always been making headlines for his equation with female partners and if at all, he is getting married or not.

In an interview with a leading daily, when asked about the concept of marriage. He said, “Now, say if someone comes and asks me something straight up, like this whole marriage shit. They’re really not interested, you know that. They just want to chhapo that marriage thingy. That pisses me off. For me, I think marriage is a waste of money!”

Further, into the interview, Salman went to reveal that he doesn’t believe in love and it’s just about the word ‘need’. Khan said, “I don’t believe in love at all. I don’t think there’s any reason for the word ‘love’ to exist. The word is ‘need’. It depends on whose need is more. Or who you might need at some point. But she may not need you at all. This can also turn the other way round when you don’t need her sometimes. So, basically, the need has got to be equal at all times. Which may or may not happen.”

Adding more to it, he said, “Then there is companionship, habit – that you’ve been together for so long – emotional connect, or the fact that both of you have flaws but you’re aware of the larger picture, and that you’re happy together. But ‘love’ is, essentially, need.”

The 51-year-old actor was asked about the considerable change in his nature – from being aggressive to now mellowing it down. To which he responded back saying, “I’m the same person. I still sit in rickshaws, walk, cycle; in fact, I just cycled here. There was, at one point in time, for whatever reason, a lot of negativity around me. I don’t know what I did to deserve that negativity. And I never spoke about it. Later on, things automatically started clearing out. Till today, I’m told I’m the most misunderstood person there is. It’s been 30 years that I’ve been here. How can I be misunderstood? If I’m indeed the most misunderstood still, then I might be the same person (that people think I am).”
