Shaadi.com recently conducted a poll amongst its members on which Indian celebrity would make ‘The Perfect Partner’ for Salman ‘Dabangg’ Khan. Out of the 21,000 responses, 69.84% respondents believed that Katrina Kaif would make an ideal wife for Salman. The interesting finding is that 62% Indian men didn’t want Salman to get married, while 60.37% Indian women wanted to see the actor settle down. This indicates that women are more comfortable with commitment.
While Katrina was the choice pan India, there were other interesting revelations. His reel life wife; Sonakshi Sinha was chosen as the ideal wife by people from the South while interestingly, North-Indians voted for South-Indian superstar Asin. This indicates that the choice for the perfect partner is no longer restricted to their own part of the country. Interestingly, South-Indians (42.20%) and North-Indians (39.36%) feel that Salman should tie the knot, while people from the West (11.6%) and East (6.84%) want him to take his own time. This clearly indicates a drastic difference in views and lifestyle of people living in the same country.
When asked if Salman Khan would make a good husband, 79.30% men agreed that he would, while 19.70% women disagreed. This indicates a difference in qualities preferred in a life-partner by men and women in India. Commenting on the poll results, Gourav Rakshit, Chief Operating Officer, Shaadi.com said, “Most individuals associate themselves with a celebrity at some point in their life. Through the poll we wanted to understand how an icon’s lifestyle influences people’s views and choices during a partner search. The poll is part of the constant research that Shaadi.com conducts in its attempt to gauge the preferences of its members.”
