Katrina Kaif's recent appearance at the Bachchan residence for Diwali celebrations raised a lot of eyebrows. And the reason behind this is not only because she was spotted together with Ranbir Kapoor, but also that she had to face Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the do. And someone who bind these two gorgeous ladies is Salman Khan, who was once the common love interest for both.
Katrina Kaif was recently spotted making a hush-hush entry at Bachchan's Juhu residence, Jalsa. And as per a leading daily, it was Aishwarya Rai who had personally invited Kat for the Diwali party. In fact, we had also heard about the Ash-Kat face-off on the sets of Dhoom 3, where the duo had supposedly exchanged pleasantries, making us belief that they have become friends now, after have been at loggerheads for the longest time.
It's wrong to say that the Salman Khan was the only cause behind Ash-Kat's cold war. In the past, things went worse between them, after Katrina replaced Aishwarya and got immortalised as a barbie doll. Kat also stole away the Nakshatra diamond endorsement assignment from Aishwarya, that made the latter feel the heat of tough competition from the International beauty.
But today, there seems no such awkwardness between the ladies and things have changed for better between them.
Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif
It is said that after the debacle of Boom, Salman Khan did every bit to shape up Katrina Kaif's Bollywood career.
Salman and Aishwarya were considered as one of the most good looking couples of the B-Town.
The couple dated for years, after which they finally called it quits.
Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
It is said that Sallu and Ash started dating on the sets of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, that also featured Ajay Devgn in leads.
Kat's First Serious Affair
After years of denial, Katrina Kaif finally admitted that she was in a serious relationship with Salman Khan. "Salman Khan was my first serious relationship," she told Cosmopolitan in an interview.
The couple broke up in March 2002 and Aishwarya said she took the decision as Salman admitted that he was not faithful to her.
Did Kat Cheat On Salman?
After Salman, Katrina was linked to Ranbir Kapoor. In fact, it was reported that Ranbir cheated on his ex-flame Deepika Padukone with Katrina.
Things went hunky dory between the Ash and Salman in the years 1999 to 2001. But, it wasn't a successful relationship.
Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya
Salman had given Katrina a big break in Bollywood in his film Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya. The duo also did Ek Tha Tiger together.
