Bollywood actor Salman Khan hosted his first Weekend Ka Vaar episode of this year’s Bigg Boss show on Saturday night. However, little did he know that comments made by a contestant will force the Bharat actor to inevitably remember his painful past. Barely few minutes into the show on Saturday night when a contestant spoke about Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam starring Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai and Ajay Devgn. It’s widely believed that while shooting for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, both Salman and Aishwarya had fallen in love with each other.
Salman was asking Bigg Boss contestants individually on who they felt better connections with. The majority verdict was that Shehnaz Gill and Paras Chhabra had a better connection with other than other housemates. Salman told another contestant Siddharth Dey to not come in between Shehnaz and Paras.
Salman then asked who, according to the housmates, was capable of spoiling the connection between Paras and Shehnaz. While many said that this would be Mahira Sharma, at least two contestants named Siddharth Dey. Siddharth, who is Shehnaaz’s bedmate in the house, called himself ‘the Ajay Devgn’ of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. This prompted Salman to ask if Siddharth considered Shehnaaz as Áishwarya Rai Bachchan and Paras as Salman Khan.
Many were surprised to hear Salman Khan pronounce Aishwarya Rai’s name since the Bollywood megastar has never mentioned her name so publicly after their relationship ended on an acrimonious note. While Aishwarya went on to marry Abhishek Bachchan, Salman has remained a bachelor till today.
Salman also called Siddharth Dey ‘horny’ but praised Shefali Bagga for taking a stand for herself. Shefali had invited everyone’s wrath on Friday night after her stubborn attitude resulted in the cancellation of the weekly task.
Salman has publicly broken down when even indirect references were made to his relationship with Aishwarya Rai. Many years ago, while on a singing reality show, Salman was seen unable to control his tears when a contestant sang a popular track from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Ismail Darbar, who was the music composer of the track, had revealed that he had seen Salman in pain every time this song was played and he will not allow any contestant to sing this song in future.
