When Pooja Bhatt opened up about marriage with Sohail Khan, but rift with Salman

Mahesh Bhatt‘s elder daughter Pooja Bhatt is one of the biggest hit actresses of the 90s. She made her Bollywood debut with the movie Daddy but she got more recognition and popularity in the 1990 movie Sadak. At that time her romance with Ranveer Shorey was very much discussed. But now this news is old but do you know that her affair was with Sohail Khan? We know you didn’t know this news, scroll down to know.

He was in a serious relationship with Pooja before Sohail married Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives fame Seema Khan. And this is not the end of the discussion even both of them had also made a plan to get married, however, it did not happen. But what happened that the relationship between the two did not happen, let’s know.

Back in 1995 during an interview with Stardust Magazine, Pooja Bhatt opened up about her relationship with Sohail Khan and her equation with his brother Salman Khan as well. Reportedly both Pooja and Salman did not get along well at that time.

When asked about her boyfriend Sohail and his family, the Bombay Begum actress said, “I’m so comfortable with his family too. They’re really nice. I feel so welcome there. I’m made to feel that I belong. I respect them all so much because there are no questions asked. They let me be what I am, not what I was. They like me for my one-to-one interaction. They’re like my family.”

She further said, “I’m very, very fond of his father. I met Arbaaz only recently and I like him a lot. Baby (Alvira ) is very nice. His mom is so wonderful, they’re all very warm. I agree Salman and I hated each other initially for some weird reason. We just didn’t get along. And that was made out to be this great ‘war’ between us. I guess it started because I didn’t do the film Love or whatever. But, today we get along very well too. In fact, we’re one big happy family.”

Speaking about her relationship and marriage plans with Sohail Khan, Pooja said, “I’m aware of the fact that there are a lot of critics out there who’s already putting a time limit on our relationship. I don’t even want to waste time reacting. Marriage is definitely on my mind, but Sohail is just on the threshold of an exciting, new career as a director and I want to work two more years before deciding on the venue and the menu. We do want a future together. Not just as in the normal culmination of any relationship but in wanting to be together. I want it and so does he. Ours is a relationship that has grown due to various factors – trust, respect, understanding – everything is covered. Ultimately, we know the value of our relationship. But ill-wishers will be ill-wishers. There’ll always be the negative types. Like see, there are lawyers who’ll always pray that people do illegal things or there are divorces, so they can make a living out of it. Voyeurism is a hobby of the world. But I’m mature. I’m not living on anyone else’s terms but my own. Be it professional or personal, or anything. I’m only answerable to myself and I only compromise with myself. As for the rest of the world, they can go to hell.”

However, Sohail Khan and Pooja Bhatt’s relationship did not last long and Sohail Khan married Seema Khan in 1998. And now both of them are also living separately. Pooja Bhatt married Manish Makhija in 2004, but after 11 years of marriage, in 2014, both of them decided to separate.
