Salman Khan cheated on me, claims Somy Ali

She quit Bollywood 20 years ago and won’t return

Speaking further in the interview, she said, “I learned a lot of good things from his (Salman’s) parents. The biggest thing I learned is that they never saw religion (coming in the way of relationships and humanity) and treated every human being equally. Their home was open to everyone and love permeated throughout their house, especially from Salma aunty.”
