Salman Khan has always liked and celebrated quiet birthdays, and the 50th one will be along similar lines.

According to reports, the superstar has been contemplating replacing the blue and white yacht which has remained parked at their private beach in Alibaug since many years. The buzz is, he will be taking his family on a sea cruise on his special day.

"Boat clubs and shipping agents have been invited from across the country to Alibaug to take a look at it. Since the yacht was Sohail's idea, he will be taking the final call on the sale of the old one and purchase of the new," Mumbai Mirror quoted a Pondicherry-based businessman as saying.

Also, the old yacht, which could hold a party of 10-15 people, will now be replaced with a sleeker model complete with a massive sail and adventure sports equipment.

"He is keen to go on a vacation. He loves the ocean and is a good swimmer too," an insider told the leading daily.

In other news, Salman, who is busy with "Bigg Boss 9" and "Sultan", will soon shoot an episode with Shah Rukh Khan in the coming week.

SRK, along with Kajol, will be on the sets of the controversial reality show to promote his upcoming film "Dilwale". According to reports, the two will be seen talking at length about their experiences while shooting for "Karan Arjun" and "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai".

Salman turns 50 on 27 December.
