On December 26, 2018, Salman Khan turned 53 and he threw a grand party at the family farmhouse in Panvel. Salman celebrated his birthday in style with his close friends and family. Having his 2-year-old nephew Ahil Sharma, son of Arpita Khan Sharma and Aayush Sharma, by his side while cutting the huge birthday cake, the evening was indeed a special one.

The birthday boy was dressed in casuals and sported ripped denim paired with a navy-blue t-shirt and of course, that million-dollar smile which proves that he refuses to age!
In a video that went viral on social media from the intimate birthday celebrations of Salman Khan, he can be seen cutting his birthday cake with Ahil, while his rumoured girlfriend, Iulia Vantur sings the birthday song. Here are the pictures and video from the night:

She wrote, “He s rid of thoughts & words of other people, has his own voice; his own language. Happy happiest birthday @beingsalmankhan; am a fangirl for life! Wish you all the happiness & love you bring into everybody’s lives. Also, laughter & food were the main ingredients of the evening amongst lots of dancing.”
Salman Khan has turned 53 and his fans are eagerly waiting for the superstar to settle down in life and get married. But in a throwback interview with a leading tabloid, Salman talked about his marriage plans and said, "Wo mere paas uska koi jawab nahi hai, mujhe iss baat se bahut khushi hoti hai ki bahut sare logo ko meri shaadi ki chinta hai, pareshani hai, lekin mujhe hairat yeh hoti hai ke meri shaadi se inka kya faayda hoga. Toh aisa koi jawab hai hi nahi, haan ka bhi nahi, naa ka bhi nahi, maybe ka bhi nahi, lekin jis waqt hogi, hogi, nahi hogi toh nahi hogi. Main bahut khush hoon, main bahut zyaada khush hoon (I am happy about the fact that people are concerned about my wedding, but it makes me wonder what good will it to do to people who are so concerned about my marriage. I don’t have an answer, neither yes, no or maybe. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, then it doesn’t. I am very happy, very very happy. Seriously)!”
But Salman has shown his interest in embracing fatherhood through surrogacy. In an interview with The Times Of India in 2017, he was quoted as saying, “I do want to have a child, but with child, the mother comes. And when the mother comes, big complications happen as I am not the husband material. I am the father type. It will be unfair for anyone to think that I will change him. I will not change. I sometimes feel surrogate type ka ho jaye, but then look how close we are to our mothers so when the kid grows up he or she will ask maa kaun? They will then think that my father for his own selfish reasons has kept us without a mother. And then my parents too would like to see my children. So it’s all very complex.” (Also Read: Salman Khan Confesses That Dad Salim Khan Allowed Him To Bring His Girlfriends Home, On 'Dus Ka Dum')
