Salman Khan's former girlfriend Somy Ali, in an exclusive interview with Zoom TV, said that the actor "cheated on" her and that's why she broke-up with him. Salman Khan and former actress Somy were together for over 6 years in the 90s before they broke-up almost 20 years ago. Somy, who is now a social worker, had revealed in previous interviews that the only reason she came to India at the age of 16 was to marry Salman Khan after watching him in the 1989 film Maine Pyar Kiya. In her latest interview, Somy Ali said she hasn't spoken to Salman Khan in 5 years and that they both have "moved on." She told Zoom TV: "It's been 20 years since I broke up with him. He cheated on me and I broke up with him and left. It's as simple as that."
According to Somy Ali, she didn't learn "a single thing" from Salman Khan when they were in a relationship but his parents, screenwriter Salim Khan and Salma Khan, taught her to "treat every human being equally." She told Zoom TV: "I learned a lot of good things from his parents. The biggest thing I learned is that they never saw religion and treated every human being equally. Their home was open to everyone and love permeated throughout their house especially from Salma aunty."
Somy Ali had a brief career in Bollywood. After starting her career as a model in Mumbai, she went on to feature in films such as Krishan Avtaar, Yaar Gaddar, Anth, Teesra Kaun, Andolan and Mafia and worked alongside prominent actors like Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty, Dharmendra, Govinda and Saif Ali Khan.
She left the Hindi film industry some two decades ago and is now running an NGO called No More Tears. In the aforementioned interview, when asked if she is planning to make a comeback in Bollywood, Somy said that she wasn't interested in movies back then and she does not have any interest now, reported Zoom TV.
After Somy Ali, Salman Khan was linked to actresses like Sangeeta Bijlani, Katrina Kaif and Aishwarya Rai, who is now married to Abhishek Bachchan.
