Salman Khan: I will get married when I want to
Salman Khan lashed out at media persons for speculating about his wedding with rumoured ladylove Iulia Vantur and hounding his family members over it
Salman Khan's recent public appearances with rumoured girlfriend Iulia Vantur has sent gossip mills spinning out of control — it is speculated that the star might finally lose his 'eligible bachelor' tag by the year-end.

And a journalist did that to him. That's wrong. He's 80 years old. What if he had lost balance and fallen? And you want to ask about my marriage at 12 in the night? You guys need to maintain some decorum. Please don't provoke." The same night, his other brother, Arbaaz Khan, had evaded questions on Salman's wedding during a music concert. "Well, listen, this (event) is not for that. You think I'm going to answer that?" he had said (Read the full story).
