In the glittering world of Bollywood, parties are not just events, they are star-studded affairs that make headlines for days. Manish Malhotra’s recent Diwali bash in Mumbai was no exception, drawing in Bollywood royalty and creating a buzz that lingered long after the festivities ended. However, amidst the glamour and celebration, a viral image from the event has sparked sensational rumors, particularly around Salman Khan and his alleged embrace with ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai.
The photograph, which has been making rounds on social media, claims to capture a moment of Salman Khan hugging Aishwarya Rai at the Diwali bash. The faces of the individuals involved are conveniently obscured, leaving room for speculation. In reality, the man in the grey t-shirt resembling Salman Khan is indeed the Bollywood superstar, but the woman in the pink ethnic dress is not Aishwarya Rai.
Upon closer inspection, it turns out that the woman in the picture is Sana Pancholi, sister of actor Sooraj Pancholi. Salman Khan was captured in a friendly greeting with Sana during the party, and the image has been misconstrued, leading to the false claim that Salman was hugging Aishwarya Rai. The misleading image circulated widely on social media platforms, prompting fans to express excitement and even tagging filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the hope of a sequel to the iconic “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.”
