|All the euphoria over Salman Khan’s “decision” to marry the Romanian TV actress Iulia Vantur has been nipped in the bud by the actor’s father Salim Khan.
The rumour of Salman Khan’s marriage swept so strong through the tinsel town and the fourth estate, that some might have even imagined the pretty Iulia in a bridal get-up and Salman as the dulhe raja perched handsomely on a mare. Just add the strain of shehnai to the picture and the fantasy is all but complete.
Sweet dreams! but the reality is somewhat different. Bursting the bubble is none other than Salman Khan’s father, the illustrious scriptwriter Salim Khan.
According to Khan senior, there is “absolutely nothing” to the rumours of Salman Khan’s marriage. He also describes Iulia Vantur as strictly a “friend” of Salman Khan, and adds that “nothing serious” is going on between them.
As long as Salman hasn’t been keeping secrets from his dear dad, we take Salim Khan’s word for it and so should all the female fans of the 47-year-old superstar who must have been going green with jealousy. Cheer up girls! The man’s not taken yet. Those reports of him spending a lot of ‘quality time’ with Iulia Vantur at a suburban five-star hotel are perhaps made-up.
BTW, just a recap of Salman’s love life reveals a list of pretty girls, who -- by the way again -- are not girls anymore. He’s dated the likes of Katrina Kaif, Aishwarya Rai, Sangeeta Bijlani and Somy Ali. Well, they are the ones the media knows of.
What was that Rod Stewart song? “Some guys have all the luck…”
