The most eligible bachelor of Bollywood, Salman Khan whose film Tubelight is running on cinemas currently talks about his views on the institution of marriage and the meaning of love in his dictionary.
On the idea of marriage, Salman blatantly 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!”
The ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ also expressed his views on love saying, “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.”
However, there is one thing he firmly believes in and that is companionship. “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.”
