He rose to fame with his killer dance moves and left the nation swooning over him. As years passed, his popularity kept rising. His charm also pulled millions of female fans towards him and thus, appeared many rumoured linkups.
Nevertheless, he remained unaffected of the hearsays, and more importantly dedicated to his long time lady-love. Maintaining a low key affair of his love life, choreographer-turned-actor Salman Yusuff Khan surprised the world when he tied the knot with Faiza Harmain.
Here is the journey of this cutesy couple Salman and Faiza that is filled with passion, dedication and unconditional love. Scroll on and travel down their memory lane to know the entire love chronicle of the gorgeous duo.
Salman met Faiza Harmain while the both were in high school. He proposed her on December 9, 2000. They dated for 10 long years before they final took the wedding vows.
Faiza used to work with an airline and so, she used to travel to varied places. Salman, on the other hand, was very busy in his shoots. The couple was unable to give time to each other, but the pair kept their love on through a long-distance relationship.
In fact, on this very note, Salman was once quoted saying:
"I think that kept the spark alive.”
The winner of Dance India Dance Season 1 and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, Salman also stepped into the world of acting with the movie ABCD. In an interview, he expressed his feelings about his love and stated:
"Faiza has been my only girlfriend.”
The couple got engaged on December 9, 2013, which was the same date Salman proposed Faiza a decade ago.
On December 27, 2013, the duo got married in a simple nikaah ceremony which was held in Bangalore, the home town of Salman. The marriage was a very humble function with no glitzy show off. Salman shared about his wedding and said:
“It's a close-knit family affair. I have invited a few industry friends,"
On being asked about how he supports her wifey, he said:
“She wants to pursue fashion designing now. I will support her like she has supported me.”
As mentioned before, there were occasions when Salman was linked-up with his reality show dance partners Isha Sharwani, Drashti Dhami and a few others. Salman maintained silence and when asked what has been her reaction to such rumours, he answered it wonderfully:
"Those who know me, know Faiza. She knows all my colleagues. However, I can't silence everyone, so I remained silent."
Usually honeymoon means walking around the beach or hills holding each other’s hands. Or it’s about indulging a laidback time in remote exotic resorts. But this wasn’t the case with Salman and Faiza. The crazy choreographer went sky diving and watched a cricket match on his honeymoon, which they celebrated in Dubai.
The lovebirds welcomed the new member to their nest in March 2016. The Almighty blessed the couple with a baby boy. An elated father, Salman took to his Instagram page to break the news about their parenthood. He posted this picture:
The caption with this one read:
“In Allah's name .. His mercy is infinite and eternal , I pray to him for strength and skills to be able to take responsibility for the care and upbringing of my child ... Thank u Allah for my most priced possession ... Our family is now complete , we have a new little member who is currently accepting kisses, hugs and prayers , so come over and share some love !”
Salman and Faiza have named their new-born son Hamdan which means 'the chosen one' in English and 'Tarif' in Urdu. When asked how this new feeling of fatherhood I, Salman said:
"It is too real to be true! I mean the happiness and the fact that I am now a father hasn't sunk in yet. I feel much stronger, and I have much more fire to work harder in life now."
With the joy, the responsibility too has increased for Salman including financial commitments. However, it hasn’t impacted his lovely wife, as he said:
“She has a lot of trust in me … she saw me when I started with Rs 20 in my pocket,”
Salman, proves that love isn’t a thing to flaunt, but a commitment to be felt and lived. That is why even the glamour of the reel world could never impact his personal life.
Team BollywoodShaadis would like to wish Salman, Fiaza and little Hamdan, a very happy life and years of togetherness!
