New Delhi: "Salman Khan is a good friend," Iulia Vantur, who is rumoured to be dating the actor, told Times Now. When asked about marriage rumours with Salman, Iulia said, "I'm aware of the gossip. Most of it is not true. But I cannot stop people from spinning stories. I have a lot of respect for Salman. At the same time, I have no idea where life is taking me. Three years ago, I was all about being responsible and making plans, but not everything turns out the way we expect them to. Not everything is our will. What happens was meant to happen," reports Times Now.

Iulia, who is a Romanian TV presenter, also said that Salman Khan is her good friend. She revealed that the Sultan actor guided and encouraged her to sing.
"I had never planned to come to India to work. There was no ambition, no fool-proof plan. Salman is a good friend and he guided me, encouraging me to sing. I never thought that I would be able to sing in Hindi but he supported me. I started singing because of him. I had no plans to be a part of Bollywood but I also like surprises at the same time," Iulia added.
