It has now become an annual tradition for Salman Khan and his family to celebrate his birthday at his farmhouse in Panvel. This year was no different. And joining him this year was his Tiger Zinda Hai co-star Katrina Kaif.
The Bhai of Bollywood is known for his moody and unpredictable nature which has sometimes led him to trouble. Nevertheless, his kind-hearted, loyal and amicable nature is something that not only industry but his fans are also fond of.
The man is now turning 52, and yes, he looks too good for his age. The world wants often questions him about his marriage, but since no such announcement is expected from him anytime soon, here are some women who he met in his life:
Sangeeta and Salman were rumoured to be madly in love with each other. However, Sangeeta called off the relationship after she caught him cheating, and later went on to marry Indian cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin. The marriage later ended in divorce. The irony today is that both of them are single.
Somy was only 19 when she started dating Salman in the year 1997. Things soon turned sour because she was extremely unhappy with Salman's drinking problem.
The couple had a sizzling chemistry in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and soon started dating. However, the end of the relationship was very controversial because apparently, Salman was not able to come to terms with the break-up. He reportedly came on the sets of Chalte Chalte (when Aishwarya was chosen to play the lead role which was later given to Rani Mukerji) and held Shah Rukh Khan by the collar because he suspected of them being in a relationship. He even made threatening calls to Vivek Oberoi, who Aishwarya was rumoured to be dating
After Aishwarya, came in her lookalike, Sneha, a friend of Salman's sister, Arpita. She even worked in a film with him.
It is rumoured that Salman helped Katrina enter the film industry. They first met on the sets of Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya and were soon reported to be dating. They both parted their ways for reasons unknown, after which Katrina went on to date Ranbir Kapoor. As of now, both are single and refer to each other as "BFFs".
The German model Claudia, who was featured in Bigg Boss 3, was reportedly Salman's "special friend" whom he introduced to his family. However, Claudia has always called Salman her "good friend".
It is believed that Zareen Khan reminded Salman Khan of Katrina Kaif and hence he introduced her to filmmakers.
Maheck was a contestant on Bigg Boss 5, who got a chance to enter the show after the eviction. It is her re-entry into the house that set the rumour mill abuzz. It was speculated that Maheck always had feelings for Salman Khan, despite having a boyfriend. However, she is now engaged to film actor Ameesha Patel's brother Ashmit Patel.
Rumours of them dating each other started on the sets of Jai Ho. Salman had also gifted her a brand new luxury car.
It was only recently that Iulia Vantur made the headlines. Spotted at various parties with Salman Khan, media reports even suggested that they are planning to get married.
As Dr Jehangir Khan said in the film, Dear Zindagi, "Hum kitni qursiyan dekhte hain koyi ek lene se pehle… phir apna life partner choose karne se pehle options dekhne main kya problem hai."
Well, Salman Khan sure has lived his life with this motto. All we can do is hope that he finds his perfect kursi this year. Even if he doesn't, he will still remain one of the most loved actor of Bollywood.
