Salman Khan said: "Weddings have become such a big thing that people started spending lakhs and lakhs and crores and crores in getting somebody married"
If it's not Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan's son Taimur, then showbiz followers are fixated on Salman Khan's single status. At a recent event held in Mumbai, Salman Khan, 52, revealed why he's still single - because weddings are expensive and he cannot afford one. "My father got married in Rs 180," said Salman but wedding ceremonies today are OTT and the Dabangg star blames filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya for it. "Because of his films like Hum Aapke Hain Koun..? and Hum Saath Saath Hain weddings have become such a big thing that people started spending lakhs and lakhs and crores and crores in getting somebody married. I can't afford it. That's the reason I'm single."
Just FYI, Salman, who said that he cannot afford an expensive wedding, had organized an extravagant wedding for his sister Arpita in 2014 in Hyderabad's Falaknuma Palace, which has one of India's most expensive banquets. The wedding guests were also accommodated in the Palace to ensure privacy.
Salman Khan aced Forbes' list of Top 100 Indian Celebrities with Rs 232.83 crore as his annual earning - just saying.
Salman Khan's last film, Tiger Zinda Hai, made him the only Bollywood actor with three Rs 300 crore films. Salman is currently filming Race 3 with Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Anil Kapoor and Bobby Deol. His upcoming projects are Bharat with director Ali Abbas Zafar and Dabangg 3.
Salman Khan is also producing his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma's Bollywood debut film Loveratri.
