After Aishwarya Rai, the actress who came the closest to Salman Khan was Katrina Kaif, but eventually even their relationship ended up in a our note. At one time, Salman Khan used to recommend Katrina to almost every director in the industry, but now salman Khan doesn’t want to be even professionally linked to her.
That is the reason Salman Khan recently turned down a Rs.7 crore ad opposite his ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ co-star.
Salman doesn’t even want to be professional associated with Katrina now. And this has also affected Katrina’s career prospects as she has lost out on couple of big-budget Salman films.
As per grapevine, Katrina was the first choice for the female lead in Bajrangi Bhaijaan, but the role went to Kareena Kapoor. The same happened with the casting of ‘Sultan’ where Salman didn’t want Katrina paired opposite him.
It seems Salman Khan felt the actress who came the closest to marrying him was Katrina kaif and is not happy with the turn of events.
When the bikini clad images of Katrina, with Ranbir Kapoor, on a beach in Ibiza went viral on the internet, Salman took her side and asked “If such pictures of your sister or mother go viral how would you feel? Even if it’s your beau you won’t like it neither any one else. What we do in the flicks is different thing but invading someone’s personal life in this manner is not admirable and neither is anyone’s right”. Ranbir, on the other hand, remained silent throughout the episode.
At Arpita Khan’s wedding, Salman even went to the extent of telling Katrina how she could have chosen to marry him but instead she chose Ranbir as a boyfriend.
Says Salman, “She used to be a friend, but today she is somebody else’s friend. I respect that and I stay away because I don’t want to give someone a reason to tell her, ‘Oh you are still in touch with Salman.’ The past should not intrude in the present.”
Looks as if its definitely game over for this relationship!
