Salman Khan's grand birthday bash

Will Salman fulfill Veena Malik’s wish?

Salman, one of the highest paid actors in Bollywood, has seen a lot in his life. It is now that destiny has started smiling on him. A couple of years back, Salman grabbed headlines for all the wrong reasons, his turbulent personal life, drinking habit, hitting his girlfriends, road rage case and black buck case.

Link-ups and breakups have been equally conjoined to his name as the box-office success. But what we see today in Salman was not the same 10 years down the lane when he was known for his roguish behaviour. He somehow came out of his much troubled life and revived his career too.

His reluctance to marry gives female fans a reason to feel good about.

When questioned about marriage Salman said on a talk show, “Why should I marry? One marries to have children, but I already have children! My nieces and nephews are my children. I wanted to marry to make babies, but now I have them, so marriage isn’t that important, is it?”

Reportedly, director Muazzam Beg, who will unveil the first look of his film "Munna Bhai, Sallu Bhai", said he is inspired by the lives of Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt, on "Dabangg" star's birthday,  The cast and crew of the film have arranged a cake cutting ceremony at Bandra's Gaiety Galaxy, according to media reports.

Salman Khan has taken two days off from 'Bigg Boss 7' to celebrate his birthday on Friday at his Panvel farmhouse.
