Both Salman and Sangeeta may have parted on a bad note, but they continue to be good friends and are seen in many public events together.

59-year-old Sangeeta dated Salman in his younger days. Both were in love in the late 80s and even wanted to tie the knot. According to reports, they met at a party in 1988, and later began dating. They were also seen in many commercials.

According to reports, the couple had also decided on a date for the wedding — May 27, 1994. In an interview, held in 1993, Salman had said, “Yes, I plan to marry. When the time comes I will. It could be to Sangeeta (Bijlani) or to anybody else.” The wedding invites were also printed.

However, things didn't go according to plan. Sangeeta reportedly called off the wedding after she allegedly caught Salman cheating on her with Somy Ali.

In a popular talk show, Koffee with Karan, Salman admitted to cheating on Sangeeta. The actor said he was caught red-handed.

Sangeeta later married former Indian cricket team captain Mohammad Azharuddin, whom she separated from in 2010. 

Salman was last seen in the film Bharat and is currently shooting for brother Arbaaz Khan’s Dabangg 3 which is directed by Prabhu Deva and stars Sonakshi Sinha, Kannada actor Sudeep, Nikitin Dheer, Dimple Kapadia and Pramod Khanna, late actor Vinod Khanna’s brother.

He is scheduled to start shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah with Alia Bhatt next.
