Salman Khan with KidPune: Well, one needn’t be a married man to be feted as the perfect father figure. At least that is what Salman Khan has proved it after the Father’s Day which happens to be last Sunday. In an online survey, ironically carried on by Shaadi, the man with the “Perfect Body” – Salman Khan, has received 39 per cent of votes for taking the cake as the ‘Perfect Father Figure’.

Asked as to who they would vote as an Indian father-figure, 39 per cent of those who participated in the poll, mostly comprising current Indian youth, cast their vote in favour of Salman – ostensibly carried away by the compassionate nature of the superstar. Incidentally Salman pipped another yet-to-be-married and charismatic man – Rahul Gandhi, who came a close second bagging 31 per cent votes.

Cricketers Yuvraj Singh and Virat Kohli and the current craze of the youth in Bollywood Ranbir Kapoor were the other notable contenders for the coveted celebrity father-figure. The Business Head of Shaadi.com Mr. Gaurav Rakshit said in a statement that the result indicates the mindset of the current youth. Traits such as generosity and masculinity seem to be continued to be admired as features of an ideal father. Over 9800 members of the marriage portal participated in the poll.
