Smita Jayakar recalled Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan's blossoming romance

In an old interview, Smita Jayakar talked about Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan's relationship and shared that the duo had initially started dating while they were shooting for the film, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam together. The veteran actress shared that the ex-couple's love helped to bring out their best chemistry in the film. Revealing how Salman and Aishwarya's love banter used to grab their attention on the sets, Smita said:

“At that time, their love story had just started. It blossomed there, so it was showing, and it worked very well for the film. I remembered one scene from the song Aankhon Ki Gustakhiya, where Salman had to go all the way around as Ash was standing next to me. So Sanjay goes and touches her (Ash) like this, and he (Salman) goes and says, 'Sanjay Sir, why did you touch her? You are not supposed to do that.' You know how you feel in new love, it was all that feeling. Their eyes used to twinkle, we used to watch them, we were observers."

“Is there anything more I can say about Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam that isn’t already known. Aishwarya and I used to sit and chat after shooting. She also had not become so big in the industry at that time though she was Miss World. It is a sweet and beautiful movie that still gives people a nostalgic feeling whenever they revisit it. I have to thank Bhansali for giving me that role.”
