Sal­man Khan’s re­cent pub­lic ap­pear­ances with ru­moured girl­friend Iu­lia Van­tur has sent gos­sip mills spin­ning out of con­trol — it is spec­u­lated that the star might fi­nally lose his ‘el­i­gi­ble bach­e­lor’ tag by the end of the year. So, when me­dia per­sons got the op­por­tu­nity to get it straight from the horse’s mouth at an event, they didn’t hes­i­tate. Sal­man, how­ever, was hardly amused. With a dead-pan ex­pres­sion, he said. “It is my thing. I don’t even know you; why should I tell you? I will get mar­ried when I want to. I will tell my fam­ily and de­clare it to my fans through a tweet or a

Face­book post. It is be­tween my fans and me.” A di­rect query on his wed­ding wasn’t ex­actly what had got Sal­man hot un­der the col­lar. An ear­lier ques­tion on his younger brother, ac­tor-pro­ducer So­hail Khan al­legedly hurl­ing abuses at jour­nal­ists last Thurs­day

night seemed to have ruf­fled him. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, So­hail and Salim Khan were ex­it­ing a sub­ur­ban wa­ter­ing hole when a group of pho­tog­ra­phers and re­porters hud­dled around them, seek­ing con­fir­ma­tion with re­gard to Sal­man’s spec­u­lated wed­ding.

Clar­i­fy­ing about the in­ci­dent, Sal­man said: “He did not mis­be­have with any­body. Just be­cause of com­pe­ti­tion (to break news first), you pop up in the dead of night and muh mein boom ghusa

dete ho (shove a mike down our throats). Yeh koi achhi baat hai kya? Ha­mare saath toh phir bhi okay hai, dad ke saath tha So­hail (Is this fair? It is okay with us, but it was my dad with So­hail)... And a jour­nal­ist did that to him. That’s wrong. He’s 80 years old. What if he had lost bal­ance and fallen? And you want to ask about my mar­riage at 12 in the night? You guys need to main­tain some deco­rum. Please don’t pro­voke.” The same night, his other brother, Ar­baaz Khan, had evaded ques­tions on Sal­man’s wed­ding dur­ing a mu­sic con­cert. “Well, lis­ten, this (event) is not for that. You think I’m go­ing to an­swer that?” he had.

Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Sal­man Khan.
