You met Somy Ali recently in Bangkok while shooting for Ready?
Sure, I did. She flew down to Bangkok from Hong Kong because she had some work in Hon Kong. What’s the big deal?
Somy has said that Aishwarya Rai was responsible for your split?
(Smiles) Somy said it, so ask her. I don’t know anything.
Considering you've had several romantic relationships, what according to you is the one thing that women want from a man?
A woman would want her man to be charming, lovable, and sweet. She would want flowers, chocolates and candlelit dinners.
But a lot of women today prefer to be practical and may not want their man to present them with all those things...
Oh do you know any woman like that? No...it's not true. It's all in theory. In reality they love to have all of the above.
So when is the D-day for you? Salman Khan’s marriage has become such a curious topic..
I don’t know whom I’ll get married to but eventually, I will get married. People keep asking me ‘When are you going to get married?’ without meaning it… it irritates me, so I give them any answer.You can’t get married just because people want you to,you marry because you want to make the girl happy. When I feel the confidence that I’ll make the girl happy that will be the right time.May be I am waiting for the right person.
Are friendships in the film industry fickle?
It depends on the kind of bond you have formed with a person. If it's not work related, it generally lasts long. If it's work related, it can go either way. Mohnish Behl, Sanjay Dutt, Aamir Khan, Sajid Nadidwala...all are good friends. Shah Rukh Khan used to be friend.
Was that friendship (SRK) work related?
I have no idea buddy...you ask him that question.
Are relationships fickle too?
No, relationships are not fickle. If that thing is meant to be, that person will be there. If its not meant to be, it won't.
How do you rate yourself as a lover, actor and friend?
(Looks puzzled) How can I rate myself? You ask this question to my lovers, audience and friends.
Salman's body has always been drooled over. How do you maintain it? Do you avoid any kind of food?
I exercise a little more than I eat. And I eat a lot. I don't avoid oil or fried food. I eat everything except pork and beef.
