Former actress and model Somy Ali and Salman Khan's relationship was one of the talks of the town back in the early 90s. They were seen in many ads together and were often seen painting the town red. However, their romance was short-lived.
Somy is now an activist working for women rights, domestic and sexual abuse victims in the USA, has recently opened up about his past life. Post her breakup with Salman, she quit Bollywood and left the country.
In a report published in Indian Express, the actress stated the real reason behind the breakup, she said, Salman cheated on her during their relationship.
Earlier, Somy had shared how she would get jealous of seeing Salman with Sangeeta Bijlani. "I used to see Salman and Sangeeta (Bijlani) together at his house, holding hands. It used to kill me. I was this obsessed teenager out to marry Salman somehow. We started dating after a year. They broke up due to me. It was wrong, but I was too young to realize that."
In a recent interview with Times Of India, Somy Ali said after watching Salman Khan's Maine Pyar Kiya in 1991, all she wanted was to marry him. "It was 1991 and I was 16. I saw Maine Pyar Kiya, and I went, ‘I have to marry this guy!’ I told my mom that I am going to India tomorrow. She, of course, sent me off to my room, but I kept pleading that I have to go to India and marry this guy — Salman Khan. That night, I had a dream that I have to go marry Salman because he is going to be my saviour. Since she wouldn’t relent, I called my dad. Of course, I didn’t tell him why I wanted to visit India."
In the mid-90s Salman Khan and Somy were in a relationship and were inseparable until he started working on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. For the first time, he met Aishwarya Rai, and love between the two blossomed on the film sets. It is reported that, by the time the film ended shooting, Salman and Aishwarya were dating.
In an interview, Somy Ali was asked about her relationship with Salman and what led to their break up. When asked who came between Salman and her, she said, "Aishwarya Rai."
Nevertheless, Somy added that she do not blame either Aishwarya or Salman for their break up. She said, "They both did what they felt and believed was the right thing to do then. I don't like to hold grudges. It will only affect my growth as a person."
