Reportedly, Salman congratulated the star couple for their first bundle of joy and out of the blue, the hunk even declared himself the “Chacha” of his former girlfriend Aishwarya’s to-be born kids.
"I congratulate Abhishek and Aishwarya. I wish they have 7 kids. I hope they make a cricket team with extras,” Salman told the reporters at the event.
"I have become a Chacha, and I also congratulate Mr Amitabh Bachchan on becoming a grandfather," further added the ‘Dabangg’ Khan.
Salman wants to let bygones be bygones?
Ever since their break-up, Salman and Aishwarya have tried their best to avoid bumping into each other.
But now it seems that as Aishwarya is happily married to Abhishek and he too has also moved on in his personal life, Salman wants to let bygones be bygones.
By congratulating Abhi and Ash, Salman has already extended the olive branch. Let’s see what Aishwarya has to say on this.
Salman and Aishwarya parted ways in 2002
Salman and Aishwarya started dating in the year 1999, when they had teamed up for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s smash hit love saga ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.’
The duo played on-screen lovers in the film and, apparently, fell in love with each other off-screen too.
After being in a relationship for nearly 3 years, Sallu and Ash parted ways in 2002. When the splitsville took place, media was abuzz that Salman had abused Aishwarya physically and verbally and this led to their break-up.
We hope all gets well between Salman and Aishwarya soon!
