The buzz is that Bollywood’s most eligible bachelor is ready to trade in his ‘single’ status at the end of this year. Salman Khan has long been saying that he would think about settling down to married life once the courts decided on the hit-and-run case he has been involved in for over a decade.

Now that the verdict has freed him from conviction, the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ has reportedly set a wedding date — December 27th, which incidentally, is also going to be his 51st birthday.

The bride-to-be, Romanian beauty Iulia Vantur, has been pretty much a constant in Sallu Mian’s life in the past year, seen with him and his family in public on a number of occasions.

Salman Khan’s mother is apparently the one who has convinced him to consider a permanent relationship, and it’s said that she has given her approval to her son’s choice of bride.

With the upcoming release of Salman’s film ‘Sultan’ slated for this summer, and now the marriage announcement, 2016 may be the luckiest year yet for India’s most loved superstar.
