Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who recently made a successful comeback with the film “Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan” has expressed his desire to become a father. In a recent interview on the show “Aap ki Adalat,” the actor shared his plans for fatherhood, stating, “Abhi main kya bolu woh toh plan toh tha. Bahu ka nahi tha, but bachay ka tha. Lekin ab law ke hisaab se woh toh Hindustan mein ho nahi sakta. Toh ab dekhenge kya kare (I had plans. It wasn’t for a daughter-in-law, but for a child. But according to the Indian laws, it’s not possible. Now, let us see what can be done).” He also mentioned how he had been trying to follow in the footsteps of director Karan Johar, who had twins through surrogacy.
“Bachchon ka bada shauk hai mujhe. I love kids,” said Khan, expressing his fondness for children. However, he added that having children would also mean having a mother in their lives, and he already has a lot of “mothers” in his family. “Maa unke liye bahut acchi hai, lekin hamare ghar mein maa hi maa padi hai sir. Humare paas pura zila hai, pura gaon hai. Woh unka accha khayal rakh lengi. Lekin uski maa, meri patni hogi (A mother is good for them, but we have a lot of mothers at home. But my kid’s real mother will also be my wife),” he said.
The actor also joked about his bad luck in love when asked about his marriage plans, saying that it’s all in God’s hands now. “I am unlucky in love,” he quipped. However, he also added that if he has children in the next 4-5 years, he will have plenty of time to play with them for the next 20-25 years.
Salman Khan’s desire to become a father through surrogacy has sparked a debate in India, as surrogacy laws in the country have been tightened in recent years. While surrogacy is still legal in India, it is only allowed for married couples, and only if they have been unable to conceive naturally after five years of trying. Khan’s comments have led to discussions about whether the laws should be revised to allow more people to have children through surrogacy.
Khan also mentioned that he has been keeping up with Karan Johar, who had twins through surrogacy in 2017. “Wahi main koshish kar raha tha lekin woh law shayad change ho gaya hai. Toh ab dekhenge (That’s what I was trying to do. But, that law may have changed, so let’s see),” he said.
Salman Khan’s desire to become a father has delighted his fans, who are eagerly waiting for him to start a family. With his star power and influence, the actor’s comments may also lead to a wider discussion about surrogacy laws in India, and whether they need to be revised to allow more people to have children.
