Former Bollywood Actress Somy Ali once again talked about her relationship with Bollywood Megastar Salman Khan. She feels it’s healthier for her to not be in touch with him anymore.
Somy Ali was supposed to make her acting debut opposite Salman Khan. In an interview, she told that Salman Khan was starting his production house back then and looking for a leading lady. Then, Somy was signed for his first production venture titled ‘Buland’. However, the project fell like her relationship. She calls the film’s shelving metaphor for her relationship.
Speaking to a leading lady Somy Ali said, “Salman had just begun his home production and was looking for a leading lady to star opposite him in the film called Buland. We went to Kathmandu to shoot. Unfortunately, I was too young and new in the industry and there was some problem with the producers and the film was shelved. So it was a metaphor for our relationship I would say.”
Somy fell in love with the Maine Pyar Kiya actor since the beginning of his career. She has said many times that she flew from Pakistan to India only to get married to Salman Khan. They were in a relationship for almost 8 years.
When asked if they are still in touch, Somy said, “I have not spoken to Salman in five years. I think it is healthy to move on. I have moved on and he has moved on too. I don’t know how many girlfriends he has had since I left in December 1999. I wish him all the best. I know his NGO is doing brilliant work and I am proud of his Being Human Foundation. Psychologically, it is healthier for me to not be in touch with him. It is good to know he is in a good place and he’s happy, and that is all I care about.”
Somy Ali had a very short career in Bollywood. She had worked with Saif Ali Khan, Mithun Chakraborty and Sunil Shetty among others. It was reported that She broke up with Salman Khan because of Aishwarya Rai. In an earlier chat with Zoom, Somy revealed that Salman has cheated on her. “It’s been 20 years since I broke up with him. He cheated on me and I broke up with him and left. It’s as simple as that,” she said.
On the work front, Salman Khan is soon starting to shoot for Tiger 3 with Katrina Kaif. His blockbuster film Bajrangi Bhaijaan is also on the cards to get a sequel. Other than these two, he has an impressive line-up to follow- Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, Antim, Pathan, Kick 2, Sooraj Barjatiya’s film, Black Tiger Biopic, Master remake and many more.
