Did Salman Khan introduce Iulia Vantur as his girlfriend at Preity Zinta's wedding reception bash?
Looks like Salman Khan no longer wants to keep his relationship with Iulia Vantur a secret as he apparently introduced the Romanian actress to Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan at a recent bash
Salman Khan's relationship with Romanian actress Iulia Vantur has been an open secret for a while and of late, the star does not seem to be making any attempt to hide her presence in his life anymore.
Salman Khan and Iulia Vantur
Last week, when Salman returned to Mumbai after wrapping up the shoot of Sultan in Punjab, onlookers were amused to see Iulia walking behind him, holding his mother Salma's hand (View Photos). More recently, on Friday night, Salman made an official entry with his girl at actress-producer Preity Zinta's wedding reception and what's more, he introduced her to his B-Town colleagues, Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan, says an industry source.

The crème de la crème of Bollywood had turned up for the grand bash — Preity made sure that the reception was high on glitz and glamour after a low-key wedding to US-based financial analyst Gene Goodenough in LA on February 29 — and the flashbulbs went into a frenzy. However, Salman and Iulia's join entry was, arguably, the highlight of the evening.
Says a source, "They arrived in different cars — Salman was alone while Iulia came with the actor's sister, Alvira and her husband Atul Agnihotri. But they entered the party together, making heads turn."
Later, the 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' star caught up with his friend-turned-foe-turned-best friend Shah Rukh Khan and also had a long chat with Abhishek Bachchan, reveals a source, adding, "Salman introduced Iulia to SRK and Abhishek. The couple was by each other's side throughout the party."
Sallu-Iulia's adorable togetherness at Preity's big night sure seems to have added fuel to buzz that the couple is ready to take the plunge.
Hush, who's with Sush?
