Salman Khan’s wedding has been one of the most discussed topics in the industry. While the actor has always been unbothered about it, there was a time when he was all set to tie the knot. Warda Nadiadwala, the wife of popular producer Sajid Nadiadwala, recently opened up about an interesting anecdote related to her wedding day with the producer. Warda recalled how Salman Khan too was supposed to tie the knot on the same day as their wedding, but the superstar ditched them at the end minute.

In a conversation with Connect Cine, Warda Nadiadwala revealed, “It was the day after our wedding I got to know about it. I asked Sajid, ‘Ap dono kya baat kar rahe the? You guys were whispering something into each other’s ears and then you both were laughing.’ There was a long banter between them on stage. So it was the next day, he told me, ‘we were supposed to get married on the same day but he backed out. He (Salman) was saying Grandson, the car is at the back, let’s run away.’ He was very sweet. He greeted me on stage and congratulated me. Then it hit me, ‘Oh, so this is what you guys were talking, ‘Let’s go grandson, the car is parked behind us’. This is what they were talking about. Sajid revealed to me all this only the next day.”

When asked who was he going to marry, Warda laughed and said, “I think they have revealed it all on Kapil Sharma’s show. I just knew I was the girl for Sajid Nadiadwala. I was so lost and excited that I was getting married.”

She then recalled, “Later, I was making this video for Sajid where I interviewed all his friends, even during that Salman Khan told all that ‘Grandson I told you that there was a car behind us, let’s elope, you didn’t listen to me.’ I was standing right there when he was saying all this.”

In 2019, Sajid Nadiadwala too had opened up about this situation on the Kapil Sharma’s show. He recalled, “Salman already had a girl, I had to find one for myself. I told my mother and family to find a girl for me, as I and Salman had planned to get married on the same day. His father Salim sir’s anniversary falls on November 18, so we though we can tie the knot on the same date.”

He added, “Just 5-6 days before the date, he said ‘I don’t have the mood’. He managed to change his mind. Then he came on stage during my wedding, and whispered in my ears, ‘There is a car waiting outside, change your mind too and run away’.”



In another interview, Salman Khan revealed that he was all set to tie the knot with Sangeeta Bijlani. However, he got cold feet and called off the wedding.

Sajid Nadiadwala, on the other hand, who was married to Divya Bharti, tied the knot with Warda Khan in 2000 after the death of his first wife in 1993.
