They made a nice couple, or so we thought, back then. Both started their careers in modelling and Sangeeta Bijlini, or Bijli, was also a Miss India and both later ventured into Bollywood. If I remember right, the two didn’t work in a film together, but their affair was much talked about.
They later parted ways, Sangeeta went on to marry the wristy-Hyderabadi Mohammed Azharuddin (one of my favourite cricketers) and Salman into yet another tumultuous relationship.
This advertisement for Grasim’s Graviera Suitings is one of the rare occasions when Salman and Sangeeta appeared together professionally.
