‘Just a good friend’: Iulia denies romantic relationship with Salman

Much has been said and written about Salman Khan and Iulia Vantur and their alleged romantic alliance. But both Salman and Iulia have remained tight-lipped about their equation and have neither denied nor admitted to being lovers.

Now, Iulia has spoken up and has called the speculations about her romantic affair with Salman mere rumours. She labelled Salman as her ‘good friend’ and added that the actor himself had advised her to be a natural in front of the media.

Interestingly, sometime back in an interview to a Romanian publication, Iulia had sais that she would never marry an Indian.

Iulia was speaking at the launch of her song ‘Every Night and Day’ with Himesh Reshammiya, which she recorded for the composer-singer’s latest album ‘Aap Se Mausiiquii’ a few days ago. The song is entirely in Hindi, except for the hookline.

Iulia and Salman’s alleged relationship has been grabbing headlines since last year, when a picture of the Romanian beauty with a diamond and platinum ring on her finger surfaced. The photograph prompted many to think she had got engaged to Salman. She was also spotted accompanying the actor to his shooting locations.

The alleged couple also appeared together at Preity Zinta’s wedding reception and Salman attended politician Baba Siddiqui’s iftar party with her. There was also a strong buzz that they will be getting married by this year-end. But then, Iulia left for her home country and the reason was said to be visa issues. But some reports said she left because of her ‘changed’ equation with Salman.

But Iulia returned and has even recorded a Hindi song for Himesh. At the launch, Himesh praised Iulia saying she had an angelic voice and recorded the song in two hours. He also pointed out similarities between Iulia and Salman, calling both of them perfectionists.

And now that Iulia has cleared the airs about her equation with Salman, will it stop the gossipmongers from churning out rumours?
