One of the two ex-lovers is happily married and with a daughter, while the other may get married this November 18 after a spate of relationships. But people still love to talk about the love affair between Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan that went wrong eons ago. Reporters keep asking Salman Khan about her, or the other way around. After the teaser of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s latest movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil released recently, Salman Khan was again asked his opinion about it. He refused to comment on it in public, but now fresh reports say that the Sultan star has loved her in the teaser of the Karan Johar movie! India.com‘s sister site BollywoodLife.com exclusively reports some ‘sources’ as saying that Salman Khan couldn’t take his eyes off his former flame in the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil teaser. Upon seeing the teaser of the film where Aishwarya Rai Bachchan romances Ranbir Kapoor, Salman Khan is believed to have gushed, “She’s so beautiful!

Oh, wow! Since the theme of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is ‘Ek tarfa pyaar‘ or one-sided love, it seems Salman Khan got emotional watching the teaser. After all, when Aishwarya Rai, then unmarried, broke up with him, he was left with nothing but ‘Ek tarfa pyaar‘ for years until he found Katrina Kaif. Later, Katrina too ditched him for a younger Ranbir Kapoor, but Kat and Ranbir have now broken up after many years of courtship. Salman Khan meanwhile has really moved on and is most likely to get married to his Romanian girlfriend Iulia Vantur on November 18, 2016.

So definitely Salman Khan was getting nostalgic upon seeing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil teaser. Not that the two don’t bump into each other at Bollywood parties – they do. In fact, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s husband Abhishek Bachchan and Salman Khan were once spotted talking shop for hours at a party. They were all there at the Nita and Mukesh Ambani bash too. ALSO READ: Bigg Boss 10 promo 2: Sultan star Salman Khan is back in the akhada with his pehelwans!

So, it’s just the new Bollywood culture of exes not bad-mouthing each other we think. It may be recalled that an event for her last film Sarbjit, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was again asked about Salman Khan. This was about him being appointed the Goodwill Ambassador for the Rio Olympics 2016, a decision by the Indian Olympic Association that had run into controversy. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had then replied to the reporter that she was in support of any big celebrity who can further the cause of sports in the country.

Even Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have been discreet about what they are saying about each other after their break-up. They are not washing dirty linen in public. B’town has come long way from when Aishwarya Rai had given a tell-all interview to The Times of India saying that she was in an abusive relationship with Salman Khan.

But Salman Khan has not said anything bad about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or Katrina Kaif (or the in-betweens). Now, Bollywood lets bygones be bygones, and that’s good. As for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, we really think what Salman Khan said may be just a quick reaction that all of us have had seeing her: She’s so beautiful!
