Actor Salmam Khan, who is busy shooting for his film "Jai Ho", has managed to take time out to create awareness for the "Girl Child, Women Empowerment" programme, and says if he ever has a child, he wishes it should be a girl.

"If I ever have a child.. Insh'allah I will... I wish its a girl. I want a girl child," said Salman at the press conference of the social cause.

Salman Khan is supporting the cause along with Miss Universe Olivia Culpo and Sanjana Jon who is in India for 10 days for the awareness programme.

Salman asks how can you kill the child even before its birth.

"How can you kill a child even before its birth... Its not about awareness, its about your mentality. If you kill the girl child, eventually there will be no mothers and sisters and guys will have no women to marry. Women play a huge role in our lives."

The actor further revealed he is glad that he has two sisters who are taking care of his parents better than any of them.

"Women are ruling today... how can they be a burden. In my family I have two sisters and they take care of my parents more than any of us. I am glad I have two sisters."
