Back in the day, both Aish and Salman were head-over-heels in love and appeared together at public events. The ex-couple met on the sets of ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, which is a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film and also starred Ajay Devgn in a pivotal role.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said, “Then one should take the name of the one who has been internationally selected among Indian men – Salman Khan…if we are talking about looks.”
