Sangeeta Bijlani: Sangeeta was a Miss India who started trying her luck in films. Salman fell for this beauty queen and sister Alvira apparently play cupid. If there is one woman who Salman came too close to marrying, it was Sangeeta Bijlani. Rumour has it that wedding cards were also almost printed. But unfortunately, the love story ended. Both, however, continue to remain the best of friends. (See Pics: Happy Birthday Salman Khan : The actor turns 50)
Somy Ali: A 19 year old Somy Ali was the next one to walk into Salman’s heart. The two made for a happy couple but this one turned out to be a brief relationship. Rumour has it that Salman’s drinking ways played spoilsport and the couple called it quits.
Aishwarya Rai: Salman Khan fell hook, line and sinker for the light eyed former Miss World Aishwarya Rai and the duo whipped up some legendary chemistry in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Salman was reportedly madly in love with Aishwarya who too reciprocated with equal warmth initially. However, problems cropped up with Salman’s alleged abusive behaviour towards Aishwarya being seen as the prime reason behind the couple going their separate ways.

Katrina Kaif: This one went on for a long while. Salman was apparently besotted by this London beauty who had just made her debut in Bollywood with a disaster called Boom. Salman took Katrina under his wings and love blossomed between the duo and so did the latter’s career in Bollywood. Katrina was quite faithful having stood behind Salman through his turbulent times especially when he was incarcerated. However like every other Salman love stories this one too came to an end.
Sneha Ullal: Salman launched an Aishwarya Rai look alike, Sneha Ullal in Lucky and the duo were linked up very soon. However the sizzle died down after the movie flopped at the box-office.
