After Sangeeta Bijlani, Somy Ali, Aishwarya Rai and Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan is once again introducing a lady as his “girlfriend”. At his sister Arpita Khan’s wedding in Hyderabad, no one was left in doubt about the fact that Salman Khan and Iulia Vantur are a couple.
Says a source present at the wedding, “Salman and Iulia were always together.There have been rumours linking him to Jacqueline Fernandez and Daisy Shah, but the fact is that Salman is in love with Iulia. She is very comfortable with his family too.”
Back in Mumbai, Iulia is staying in a 5-star hotel in Bandra, which is a stone’s throw from Salman’s apartment. “And Salman is paying the bills,” added the source.
The actor has always had a firang fixation, going by his proximity to German model Claudia Ciesla, British model Lisa Lazarus, Swede-Greek actress Eli Abram and Londonbred Katrina Kaif. He met Iulia in 2011 when he was shooting Ek Tha Tiger in Dublin. She was then dating musician Marius Moga who helped Salman get the rights of a Romanian song which was adapted by Himesh Reshammiya as Teri meri in Bodyguard. In 2012, Iulia and Marius parted ways.
Buzz is, Arpita wasn’t happy about her bhai’s closeness to the Romanian beauty who she felt was using him as a ticket to Bollywood.
