Pooja Bhatt on hating Salman Khan
Back in the year 1995, Pooja had given an interview to Stardust Magazine where she opened up about her equation with Salman Khan. She had said, “I agree Salman and I hated each other initially for some weird reason. We just didn’t get along. And that was made out to be this great ‘war’ between us. I guess it started because I didn’t do the film Love or whatever. But, today we get along very well too. In fact, we’re one big happy family.”
