Gone are the times when people used to get married as they turned 25 or above. In this era of cut-throat competition, a lot of time is required to make a thriving career and in this process, many persons turn 30 or above. And then they have to face the questions of family members and relatives regarding their marriage.
However, there are several Bollywood celebrities who have turned 40 or above and are still happily unmarried. In fact, some of them are not even in the mood of marriage as they don’t have time or are not ready for the responsibility.
In this article, we have listed 10 such B-Town celebrities!
1. Salman Khan – 52 years old
Salman Khan’s marriage seems to have become a national issue and his fans are eagerly waiting to know when Sallu Bhai will tie knot. He is among India’s most eligible bachelors and has had several affairs. Despite the fact that Salman is 52 years old, he’s in no mood to get married anytime sooner.
In his words,
“I don’t believe in love at all. I don’t think there’s any reason for the word ‘love’ to exist. The word is ‘need’. It depends on whose need is more. Or who you might need at some point. But she may not need you at all. This can also turn the other way round when you don’t need her sometimes. So, basically, the need has got to be equal at all times. Which may or may not happen.”
2. Tabu – 46 years old
Tabu is one of the most wonderful actors of the Indian film industry and has worked in a number of blockbuster movies. Her fans have eagerly been waiting to know about the actress’ wedding and here’s what she revealed once in this connection,
“I am open to everything. I believe in taking things the way they come. Frankly, the way I am currently, I just believe in taking life by its horns and asking it to come get me. I have stopped worrying or obsessing over marriage or anything that is going to happen tomorrow or day after. I think it is a pointless exercise. We never end up doing anything if we just sit around and keep obsessing. But yes, I’m most certainly open to marriage, children and a family”.
3. Sushmita Sen – 42 years old
The former Miss Universe has made a place for herself in the film industry, thanks to her beauty, bright smile and acting skills. Instead of following the norms of society, Sushmita has always walked on the path that she chose for herself. She’s a single mother of two children and might get married if she gets to find her Mr. Perfect.
4. Ekta Kapoor – 42 years old
The TV serial queen and film producer who is known for making shows on love relationships and marriage issues is still single and in mood of marriage as of now. She once said,
“All my friends, who were married are now unmarried. With the amount of divorces I have seen recently, I think I am the more patient one. At least, I waited for it. I definitely know one thing, that I want a child but marriage, I don’t know. I don’t have time for myself, if I get a couple of hours, I would like to go to a spa. I look forward to a one-day vacation with friends. I love my work, so I don’t crib. People tell me give it up if you have such a problem with it. I won’t, I would get so bored. I’d rather be busy than bored.”
5. Ameesha Patel – 41 years old
Ameesha Patel made a dream debut in Bollywood when she was seen opposite Hrithik Roshan in “Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai” and the movie was a blockbuster.
