The megastar also dedicated his blog to all the ‘wives’ and thanked them for making the life of men beautiful and gratifying.

On his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com, he wrote: "The lavishness of the coming together, the energy and the protocol, the submission to custom and ritual…and suddenly there is another member among you…they are referred to as the ‘ardhangini’, the half of the body that you possess. They bring life, they bring harmony and composure, they acknowledge the growth of the members of this new surname, they mind the home and the hearth! They are quite unique.

“God bless them all that adorn these qualifications…for they are the rulers, the future, the ones that shall be obeyed to…they are the women the female, the better half of mankind…and they are indeed superior.

"To that superiority may I dedicate this blog to all those among us that endorse such detail. You have lived and loved and taken care and administered your prevalence. You have been strong and weak together. You have managed the home, the nest that you build, to welcome the partner as your own…you are superior." (Bollywood Country Report)
