When Salman Khan Reacted To Aishwarya Rai’s Claim Of Hitting Her, “I Don’t Think She Would’ve Survived It”

Salman Khan makes it to the captions nearly every day for colorful reasons. Back in 2018 when Tanushree Dutta created a stir with the#MeToo movement, an old videotape of Khan surfaced online where he spoke about allegedly hitting his former gal and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The interview was taken times after Rai had claimed the Wanted star physically assaulted her.

Their relationship is the country’s one of the most talked-about motifs. Their love story reportedly began on the set of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and their chemistry in the film seized a lot of attention. Due to some particular reasons, the two broke up and in 2002, Ash verified her split with Khan.

Back in 2009, Salman Khan sat for an interview with NDTV, where the journalist asked if he has ever hit a woman (allegedly pertaining to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s claim). The intelligencer asked, “ The further worrying thing was at a time when you were actually indicted of violence I mean and that was a big story in all the film magazines at the time have you ever raised your hand against a woman.”

Replying to the question, Salman Khan said, “ Yeah, now that woman has said that I have. I mean there was a intelligencer Prabhu Chawla who asked me this a long time agone, so I just banged the table and he got startled, the table really broke. I mean, if I hit notoriety, it’s obviously a fight, I’m going to be angry. I’m going to terminate and give it my stylish shot. I do n’t suppose she would ’ve survived it. So, it’s not true.”

In 2002, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan opened up about his relationship with Salman and indicted him of physically assaulting her. She indeed claimed that the Radhe star confessed to her about cheating.

Aishwarya told Times of India, “ After we broke up, he (Salman Khan) would call me and talk rubbish. He also suspected me of having affairs with myco-stars. I was linked up with everyone, from Abhishek Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan. There were times when Salman got physical with me, luckily without leaving any marks. And I would go to work as if nothing had happed.”
