When Salman Khan Met A Young Katrina Kaif For The First Time

Katrina And Salman Khan Met Each Other Before Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya!


We have seen them in quite a few movies and their pairing always has this palpable chemistry that lights up the screen. It was Salman Khan who introduced her to the cinematic world. And in turn, Katrina Kaif tasted her first Bollywood success opposite Salman Khan.


Kaif made her film debut in the 2003 movie Boom, which was a failure. After that, it was in 2005, when we saw her with Salman in Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? Since then we have seen them in quite a few movies. After 5 years of Ek Tha Tiger, we are seeing the duo back together and the fans can’t stop talking about it.


The director Ali Abbas was talking about the shooting the song, Dil Diyan Gallan, said,

“Salman and Katrina shot this song on some very difficult terrain in the Alps. The biggest highlight in this song is the unique Katrina portrait that he has drawn on a frozen lake.”

“We had to shoot on this lake and Salman converted it to a canvas. We had to source natural colours, as ice doesn’t catch all kinds of paints, which didn’t come easy. But once we got hold of this, he created a huge 20 feet by 20 feet portrait that features Katrina’s face. It’s a sight for sore eyes, this painting, and it makes Dil Diyan Gallan a truly unique romantic song visually.”

It’s more than 10 years of their friendship, but it wasn’t in 2005 that they first met. In an interview, Kat was asked what was her most memorable moment when she was 18 and she replied, “I was 18 when I met Salman and that is the most memorable thing.”


Cut to 2017. Salman, in an interview with Vogue, revealed details of his first meeting with Katrina when she was just 18.

“It was a small get-together. She had come home for a party and I thought she was one of the sweetest girls ever. She knew my sisters and all my friends, but she didn’t know me,” Salman told Vogue.


While neither Katrina nor Salman ever spoke about their alleged relationship over the years, the media speculated wedding bells for years. But in a relationship or not, the two have always shared a very deep bond and continue to do so.
