Buzz is that Salman Khan's getting close to south Indian actress Shriya Saran. The pretty actor surprised everyone when she turned up for his sister Arpita's birthday bash.
Salman's growing camaraderie with the actor has become the hot topic of discussion in the industry. "Saran looked very comfortable with Salman. Naturally, Salman had invited her. Nobody can gatecrash into Salman's party. Shriya and Salman kindled their friendship during the Celebrity Cricket League that concluded in June. The two have kept in touch ever since," a source told Mid Day.

Salman has given breaks to actors like Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Zarine Khan and Sneha Ullal. "Salman is known for building the careers of heroines in B town. He has resurrected the careers of many. It won't be tough for Salman to provide a launching pad for Saran. As it is, Saran is talented and attractive," added the source.
However, Saran denied any romantic angle with the Dabangg star. "Salman is a very kind human being. But I am single and happy. Ditto for Salman, I guess. Please don't drag me into a controversy," she told the tabloid.
The Awaarapan actor was previously linked to Dum Maaro Dum actor Rana Dagubatti. "I was never dating Rana. We were just good friends," she told.
