In the past, Salman was uncomfortable and always dodged queries on his marriage but now he seems to have a way around questions on his single status.

"Now that I am single.. I can do whatever I can. There is no need to give explanation, or lie to anyone. Whoever wants to come (in my life) can come.. but don't expect anything," Salman said.

Ask him if he is commitment phobic, the 48-year-old says, "When I commit...then I commit. Right now, I am non-committal about anything." But he does respect women. "I respect women and I will always continue to do it. I have never spoken ill about anyone," Salman said.

Salman has had relationships with various actresses including Somy Ali, Sangeeta Bijlani, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Katrina Kaif in the past.
