Salman Khan's marriage plans have always been a hot topic and there was buzz that the "Sultan" actor will tie the knot with rumoured girlfriend Iulia Vantur soon. However, Salman's father Salim Khan's words suggest that the actor's wedding is still a distant dream for his fans.

Salim said that he has never forced Salman to get married and he has no problem with his decision to marry or not to marry. "It's Salman's choice. Whenever he wants to marry or not marry. I have never influenced my children, neither have I approved their choice. This is a family that never insults anybody, leave aside giving them orders. It's a big responsibility. Kal ko shaadi mein gadbad ho jaaye toh aake mujhe bolenge ki aap hi ne kaha tha shaadi karne (laughs)," Salim told SpotboyE.

When asked if he wants Salman to get married to rumoured Romanian girlfriend Iulia, Salim said, "Salman will marry who he wants to. Arbaaz married a girl of his own choice. Sohail married a girl of his choice, I married twice of my own choice. So he will also do that. Jisse karna chahega karega. It's his choice. I leave it up to him."

The veteran scriptwriter also said that he will accept any girl as his daughter-in-law that Salman would like to marry. "Parents should not insist on who their kids should marry. You raise them, you educate them so that they grow up and think for themselves and plan for themselves. And when they are grown up and think for themselves and bring a girl of their choice, then you can't say no to that and you can't impose your decision on them. Because then you are contradicting all that you raised him to be. I shall accept his choice," he added.

Salman will next be seen in the movie "Sultan" that will present him as a wrestler from Haryana. The film also features Anushka Sharma and is slated to be released on Eid this year.
