Someone has rightly said that in Bollywood, you need to be careful- be it your work or your media image. Once tarnished, it's over for you! And if you have been linked up with an actor or actress, wherever you go, you'll be asked about them. Such is the case with Salman Khan- that even after almost 2 decades, his now-non-existent relationship with Aishwarya Rai is brought into various conversations. And of course, when media speaks of Salman Khan, they can't help but talk about Katrina Kaif.

Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif were once in a serious relationship with each other and their fans had speculated that Salman and Katrina would soon take the nuptial plunge. But time had other plans for them, and soon, Katrina Kaif started dating Ranbir Kapoor and Salman Khan went on to date Iulia Vantur. But as they say, you may have moved on from your past but your past never leaves you.
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, in almost all the interviews, are asked about their once-flourishing relationship. While they will be seen together in Bharat next, they were on the Kapil Sharma Show for the promotions of their film. During the course of the show, Katrina's dietary routine and fitness talk were brought in and how she maintains her elegant figure. Archana Puran Singh, who has now replaced Navjot Singh Sidhu, remarked that Katrina had given up savouring smoothies during De Dana Dan. And at this point, Salman Khan interjected and said, "Inhone smoothie kya mujhe bhi chod diya (she left me, let alone smoothie)." Salman Khan, thereby, hinted that it was Katrina Kaif who broke up with him during their relationship.

Katrina Kaif has also been asked about Salman Khan in various media interactions. For instance, in an interview with Pinkvilla recently, the Jagga Jasoos actress was quoted as saying, “He pulls everyone’s leg. It’s his personality that makes everyone feel comfortable. Everyone smiles around him. I’m not a silent lamb. I give it back when I have to.” On being to ask to react upon learning that Salman Khan doesn’t want her to call him bhaijan, she had replied, “Of course, he’s not my brother. He’s a friend but that’s also about the humour he is known for.”
In the same interaction, Katrina had also talked about her professional relationship with Salman and had retorted, “I remember the first film I did with Salman was Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya and that was my third film as an actor. I was new and trying to find my feet. There were also a few days on Partner with Salman and Govinda who are the kings of improvisation. I was like, ‘Oh My Goodness’. You feel out of your depth there. So now, with Bharat, there is so much for me as a person. Salman was already Salman when we did our first film. For him, he doesn’t have the same feedback. When I came on Bharat, I came as a different person because the experience is the best teacher.” (Don't Miss: Amy Jackson Enjoys Her Babymoon In Morocco, Completes 6 Months Of Her Pregnancy, Pics Inside)
Katrina and Salman have often been teased about their relationship in various instances. For example, when Karan Johar had asked how would she react Salman asked her to marry him, Katrina had replied, "This is not rapid fire. This is so unfair! This is complete cheating, I swear. Depends when he asks me.”
During an interview with The Times of India, Katrina was once questioned if she had left Salman for Ranbir Kapoor, to which, the 35-year-old actress had replied, “Who said that I ditched Salman? Salman, right? Do you know something? You guys in the media don't give a shit to stars' problems. You must, although I know you won't give a damn to what I am saying anyway.”
She had further added, “This guy, this Salman, has a very long history of relationships. Believe me, his list is longer than Aamir's. Salman, yes Salman, wanted me to copy all his previous girlfriends. Although I am four inches taller than him anyway, he asked me to wear stilettos and look as tall as Sangeeta Bijlani all the time. After that, he instructed me, yes instructed me, to start playing women's cricket.”
During one of the promotional events for Bharat, there was an interaction about Instagram followers and it took an interesting turn when Katrina had commented, "Main ek baat bataun aapko? Ask Salman if he follows me!" To this, Salman had replied, "Har jagah! Abhi main inko ghar tak chhod ke aaunga yahin se."
Katrina Kaif, on being asked about her personal life, during an interview with Rajeev Masand, had said, “Right now I’d say my life is 80% work and 20% personal. But it’s not in our control. Right now, there’s a lot of work happening. I take it as a good thing. It wasn’t in my control when my personal life…got over. It’s hard to know exactly why things happened. But I have a different take on it. “Ok fine—it [the break-up] sucks, it’s terrible, this is the worst thing in the world, my life is over. Let’s sit here and believe this, even for just two minutes. Do we feel good about things? No.” But if you really believe in your god, your universe, you’ll feel much better. The reason I feel that I should say this is because there are young girls who might be listening to me. They might find something that helps them. I may see a person and think, “Oh, she’s got everything”, or “Oh, she doesn’t struggle like I do”."
