Reacting to this sweet gesture of Salman, a fan wrote in the comment section of a paparazzi post, “Bhai ka pahela pyar (Salman’s first love).” “Love can lead you back,” added another. Someone also commented, “Salman should have married her in the first place and life would have been so smooth.”
Salman and Sangeeta met on the sets of a TV advertisement during their initial years in Bollywood. They fell in love and dated for almost a decade; it remains as one of his longest relationships. The two later decided to tie the knot but called it off.
Talking about his past relationship, Salman had told host Karan Johar on Koffee With Karan, “There was a time that I really wanted to get married and then it just didn’t work out. I have always come so close. People have got cold feet.‘Theek hai, boyfriend, isko zindagi bhar jhelna padega kya (They think I am a good boyfriend but it’s difficult to tolerate me for the rest of their lives).’ With Sangeeta, even the cards and all were printed.”
When Karan asked Salman about the rumours of him cheating on Sangeeta which caused their split, the actor said, “Yeah, kind of.” “I get caught. I’m stupid,” he added. Later, Sangeeta married former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin.
At the party, Salman opted for an all-black look in a black T-shirt with pants. Sangeeta wore a blingy-wrapped dress in purple. Among others to attend the bash were actors Shah Rukh Khan, Pooja Hegde, Kartik Aaryan, Suniel Shetty, Tabu, Suniel Shetty, Sonakshi Sinha and others. It was a joint party with Salman’s sister Arpita Khan’s daughter Ayat Sharma who shares her birthday with the Tiger actor
