Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif dated each other for many others even though neither of them ever confirmed or denied media reports about their rumoured romance.
However, the couple split and Katrina reportedly began to date Ranbir Kapoor, who is being linked with Alia Bhatt after having had a brief stint of romance with Deepika Padukone.
Last month, Katrina bailed Salman Khan out after the the latter was faced with a real cris in the event of Priyanka Chopra abruptly quitting his next year’s Eid release Bharat. But even before she could come on board the Team Bharat, several media reports had suggested that the two former lovers were back to being a romantic couple once again.
This was after Katrina joined Salman on his Da-Bangg World Tour, which also had Sonakshi Sinha and Jacqueline Fernandez among others. A video of Salman addressing Katrina as his baby had gone viral last month.
This triggered dating rumours between him and Katrina. In the video, Salman and his Da-Bangg Tour crew were seen engaged in a media interaction, when a woman was heard informing Katrina how she had a special place in her life. The woman went on to say that her daughter’s birthday was on 15 July.
“My baby’s birthday is July 15. So you have a special place in our heart,” the woman journalist said. To which, Salman responded pointing towards Katrina, “My baby’s birthday is July 16.”
Realising that this could set the internet on fire, Salman quickly sought to clarify, “Not this (pointing to Katrina) but that (pointing someone in the audience).”
On 25 August, Salman posted a still of himself and Katrina from the film Bharat, whose shooting has commenced in Malta, where he’s also been joined by his mother.
Salman also posted several videos of how the Bollywood superstar was taking care of his mother. In one photo, Salman Khan wrote, “Bada wala blessing getting to spend time wid ur Maa. #MaltaDiaries #Bharat.”
Later, Salman’s sister Arpita also posted another photo of her mother with Katrina Kaif. She later deleted the photo after she realised that Katrina was wearing her bridal outfit from the film and the look was not meant to be made public yet.
The photo, before being deleted, evoked flurry of comments from Salman Khan fans, one of whom wrote, “Saas Bahu goals!” Arpita replied with an emoji “?” which is now being viewed as her endorsement to the rumours that both Salman and Katrina are back to being a romantic couple.
Ok, we understand that the emojis are always subjected to different interpretations. However, on this occasion, Salman Khan fans would desperately hope that Arpita’s response is of the news being true.
