Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai were among the many attendees at Manish Malhotra’s Diwali party on Sunday. Although fans were treated to red carpet looks, Manish kept the party away from the cameras. While fans have been curious about all that went down at the bash, a new video has claimed that Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai shared a hug before he left the party. In a video shared on Reddit, Salman was seen hugging a woman wearing a red ensemble at the party.
Given that Aishwarya also wore a grand red outfit for the bash, the internet was quick to speculate that Salman was hugging Aishwarya. However, it was soon clarified that the woman in the video is not Aishwarya but Sooraj Pancholi’s sister Sana Pancholi. Watch the video below:
Salman and Aishwarya have been under the same roof at several Bollywood parties. However, they have maintained their distance since their ugly split in the early 2000s. Aishwarya has moved on from their relationship and is now married to Abhishek Bachchan. The couple shares a daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan. While Aishwarya and Salman don’t speak, Abhishek has a friendly bond with Salman and have also been spotted greeting each other at parties.
On the work front, Salman is preparing for his Diwali release, Tiger 3. The film marks the return of Salman and Katrina Kaif as Tiger and Zoya.
