Salman-Aishwarya's Love Story
Their affair began on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999). Later, Aishwarya started meeting Salman's family members as well and she shared a very good rapport with his sisters - Alvira and Arpita!
However, Aishwarya's family was never in favour of this relationship and her father made no secret of it as well!
Salman's Violent Behavior Ruined Their Love Story
According to India Today, "In November 2001, eyewitnesses say that Salman reached Aishwarya's apartment and kept banging on the door, asking to be let in. Some say that he even threatened to commit suicide if she didn't let him in. The drama continued till 3am in the morning, and finally she let him in."
Salman Wanted 'Marriage' While Aish Didn't
It was reported that Salman wanted a promise of marriage from Aishwarya, whereas Aishwarya wanted to focus more on her career, which had just started!
Speaking of his fight with Aishwarya, Salman had said, "If you won't fight, that means there is no love between you, I will not fight with an outsider; when we fight, it is all because of our love."
The Controversial End Of Their Love Story
After breaking-up with Salman, Aishwarya was quoted as saying, "He would call me up after the break-up and talk rubbish. He suspected me of having affairs with my co-stars. There were times that he got physical with me, luckily without leaving marks. I would go to work as if nothing had happened."
"Salman hounded me and caused physical injuries to himself when I refused to take his calls."
Salman Refuted Aishwarya's Allegations
While speaking to Mid-Day, Salman refused to admit that he has raised a hand on Aishwarya and was quoted as saying, "No. I have never beaten her. Anyone can beat me up.
Any fighter here on the sets can thrash me. That is why people are not scared of me. I do get emotional. Then I hurt myself. I have banged my head against the wall; I have hurt myself all over. I cannot hurt anyone else."
Cut To Present
Aishwarya is now happily married to Abhishek Bachchan and has a seven-year-old daughter Aaradhya. On the other hand, Salman Khan is yet to ditch his bachelorhood.
