The Salman-Aishwarya Rai affair began during the shooting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and seemed like something out of a Bollywood film with its two beautiful protagonists.  But it lasted only a couple of years and Ash and Salman broke up in 2002. There was speculation that Salman’s abusive behavior had caused the split. Salman took the break-up badly, even entering Ash’s house and causing a ruckus. Her family filed a police complaint against the volatile actor. Accused of stalking his ex, Salman Khan said in an interview in 2002, “I love Aishwarya. I am not hounding her. It’s not a teenage obsession that I feel for her — it’s pure love. She’s such a traditional Hindustani girl at the bottom of her heart. The fact that she respects her parents so much makes me admire her more.”

Aishwarya went on to marry Abhishek Bachchan.
