Former actor Somy Alia, who dated Salman Khan in the ’90s revealed the reason for breaking up with Salman. She also praised Salman’s parents and shared what she learnt from them. As per reports, Salman and Somy were in a relationship from 1991-1999.
In an interview with a leading newspaper, Somy said, “I learned a lot from his parents and household. I also learned from Salman. Ultimately, in any relationship, if you are not happy, it’s better to part ways. That was the case of the relationship between Salman and me. I decided to go back to America.”
She added, “What I learned from his parents is so phenomenal. They had an open house. Every day people would come and go. They would be loving and feed them. The door was never locked. Another pivotal lesson I learned is that we are all the same. They did not differentiate in religion at all. They never saw any difference in religion. It is very important to learn from them.”
Somy also informed that she started seeing Salman when she was 17 years old. She was fascinated by Salman after watching Maine Pyaar Kiya and also revealed that she came to India to marry him. They both started dating one year after she confessed her feelings for him.
Somy worked in films such as Krishan Avtaar with Mithun Chakraborty, Yaar Gaddar with Saif Ali Khan and Anth with Suniel Shetty during her brief career in Bollywood. She also shot a movie with Salman which was shelved later.
