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,” he said.
The wedding was called off following which Sangeeta had married cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin and quit Bollywood. Their relationship didn’t last long and they got divorced in 2010.
Connections don’t break, says Sangeeta Bijlani
Salman and Sangeeta continue to share cordial terms and the latter is often seen attending events organised by the superstar.
Recently, Sangeeta opened up on her equation with Salman to Times of India, “Connections don’t break. Connections never go away. The love between your partners, school friends never go away. People will come and go. Nobody will be permanent in life. That does not mean you feel bitter or angry. At one point you evolve. There was a point in time of my life where I was childish and stupid, but I am a grown up now. Life is full of experiences”.
