Sangeeta Bijlani and Salman Khan dated each other in early '90s when Salman was just starting out as actor.
Katrina Kaif isn't the only ex-girlfriend Salman Khan and family still bond with. Sangeeta Bijlani, Salman's girlfriend, is also very much a part of the extended Khan-daan. The former model and actress, now married to ex-cricketer Mohd Azharuddin, was spotted at Ganpati Visarjan celebrations at Salman's residence yesterday.
Sangeeta has also been photographed at various other family events. She was seen with Salman Khan's family watching Heroine and happily posed for shutterbugs with Salman Khan's sister Alvira Khan. Salman's brother Sohail Khan, dad Salim Khan and stepmother Helen were also with them.
Sangeeta Bijlani and Salman Khan dated each other in early '90s when Salman was just starting out as actor. Sangeeta, who is a former Miss India and appeared in the hit movie Tridev then married Azhar while Salman Khan had high-profile romances with Pakistani starlet Somy Ali and then Miss World-turned-filmstar Aishwarya Rai.
Salman is believed to be offering Sangeeta a shoulder to cry on after rumours of trouble and infidelity in her marriage to Azhar. Salman, known in Bollywood for his heart of gold, had a famously acrimonious break-up with Aishwarya who later accused him of violence. But, as his current cordial relationships with Sangeeta and Katrina show, he does know all about Being Human.
