Salman Khan’s bachelorhood has been subject to many a scrutiny, with many people asking the question, “Bhai shaadi kab kar raha hai?” Turns out, there was a time when he was pretty close to tying the knot with his girlfriend, but he had cold feet at the last minute and called it off.
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who has been close friends with Salman Khan since a very long time, made this surprising revelation on a popular celebrity comedy show. There was a time when Salman Khan was obsessed with the idea of getting married, in the year 1999.
Salman had gotten an attack in 1999 of getting married. He already had a girl, I had to find one for myself. Salman’s father’s birthday is on November 18, so we had decided to tie the knot on the same date. Everything was set, even cards were sent out.
Salman Khan had not only broken off his wedding just a few days before the big ceremony, but also attempted to dissuade his friend Sajid Nadiadwala from doing the same.
Just six or five days before the due date, he said, ‘I don’t have the mood.’ After changing his mind, he came on stage during my marriage and whispered in my ears, ‘There is a car outside, take it and run away.’
While the actress who Salman Khan was reported to be tying the knot with wasn’t revealed, the actor has said in previous interviews that he was very close to tying the knot with actress Sangeeta Bijlani. Salman Khan will next be seen in Prabhu Deva directorial Dabangg 3 alongside Sonakshi Sinha, which is slated to release on Christmas 2019.
