Ro­ma­nian ac­tor-model-tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter Iu­lia Van­tur (above) who is ru­moured to be dat­ing ac­tor Sal­man Khan (above right), fi­nally opens up on her re­la­tion­ship sta­tus with the ac­tor.

“Sal­man is a very good friend. He is a good friend to all who know him. He has a good heart,” said Iu­lia at the launch of her song, Ev­ery Night and Day.

Sal­man and Iu­lia have long been spec­u­lated to be in a re­la­tion­ship, but both have cho­sen to stay mum.

The ru­mours es­ca­lated when Iu­lia was seen at Mum­bai air­port with Sal­man’s mother Salma and sis­ter Alvira in may.

Sal­man made his first joint pub­lic ap­pear­ance with Iu­lia at ac­tor Pre­ity Zinta’s wed­ding re­cep­tion.

What fol­lowed next a few days later was a shock­ing ru­mour as Sal­man who would al­ways shy away from the topic of mar­riage was heard to have got en­gaged to Iu­lia.

When asked to clar­ify the spec­u­la­tion around their mar­riage, Iu­lia said, “There are too many spec­u­la­tions and too many sto­ries. As I said we are good friends. What more can I say.”

Sal­man met Iu­lia in Ro­ma­nia while do­ing a lo­ca­tion recce for his film Jai Ho in 2013. Even af­ter re­turn­ing to Mum­bai, Sal­man kept in touch with her. There were re­ports of a tiff when Iu­lia went back to Ro­ma­nia but now she is back.

Iu­lia is cur­rently, con­cen­trat­ing on Ev­ery Night and Day. Singer Himesh Re­sham­miya and Iu­lia have crooned the song from the al­bum Aap Se Mausi­iquii pro­duced by Bhushan Ku­mar.

Sal­man is a good friend. He is a good friend to all. He has a good heart. There are many spec­u­la­tions and sto­ries. As I said we are good friends, what more can I say. IU­LIA VAN­TUR, AC­TOR
