Salman Khan & Shilpa Shetty Were In A Relationship? Here’s What Shilpa Has To Say
Thumka queen Shilpa Shetty is one of the most vocal and bindaas celebrities in Bollywood. Years ago, rumour mills were churning that Salman Khan and Shilpa Shetty were dating each other. For the uninitiated, Shilpa Shetty and Salman Khan worked together in many films including Auzaar, Garv: Pride and Honor, Phir Milenge and Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar.
Although Shilpa or Salman didn’t say anything about the rumours earlier, the actress finally broke her silence with regard to dating Salman Khan. Rubbishing rumours of an alleged romance with him, she told Deccan Chronicle, “We didn’t go out on a date as such. In those days, actors shared a great camaraderie. Salman is a very humble, loving and grounded human being.”
“I remember, he would come to my house even at midnight sometimes, and by that time I’d already be asleep. Then Salman and my dad would sit down and drink a few pegs together. I remember, when my dad passed away, Salman came home, went straight to the bar table, laid his head down on it and cried,” she added.
However, all is well that ends well, and Shilpa eventually found her happily-ever-after with Raj. Talking about her first date with Raj Kundra, Shilpa said, “Mr Kundra had a few things of mine, and he flew all the way from London to Mumbai to give them to me. On the first day, he sent me a colourful bag, and the next day, he sent me another bag.”
However, Shilpa wasn’t really impressed. “I immediately picked up the phone and made it clear to him that nothing could happen between us as I was not interested in shifting base from Mumbai to London. At that point, I was planning to settle down, and he told me that he was planning to settle down as well. He gave me his Mumbai address and asked me to meet him. That’s how I ended up going on my first date with Mr Kundra.”, she said.
