Bollywood superstar Salman Khan feels his name is unnecessarily being dragged into the Jiah Khan-Sooraj Pancholi affair that ended tragically with the suicide of Jiah earlier this month.
It was alleged by Jiah Khan’s mother Rabia Khan that Aditya Pancholi, father of Sooraj Pancholi, never approved of Sooraj’s relationship with Jiah and even asked Salman Khan to try and talk Sooraj out of the relationship.
However, when asked to clarify, Salman says he wasn’t even aware that Sooraj Pancholi and Jiah Khan were dating.
“I was not even aware of Sooraj and Jiah's relationship. I got to know of it through a news magazine,” Salman is quoted as saying by TOI.
Salman Khan is slated to launch Sooraj Pancholi in Bollywood with a film to be produced by him. The movie, said to be the remake of Subhash Ghai’s Hero, will reportedly star Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya Shetty opposite Sooraj.
Clarifying further, Salman made it clear to the daily that Aditya Pancholi never sought his favour to persuade Sooraj Pancholi to move out of the relationship with Jiah.
Sooraj is presently in judicial custody and is facing the charge of abetting Jiah Khan’s suicide.
