Salman Khan has famously avoided getting married all these years. But a clip from an old interview of his from the 1990s has surfaced in which he reveals that he had once asked actor Juhi Chawla's father for her hand in marriage. But unfortunately, Salman was rejected by her father who never really shared why he was turned down. Juhi married businessman Jay Mehta in 1995.

A Twitter user shared a short clip of an older interview of Salman, with the caption, "This salman khan (red heart emojis)." In the video, Salman is wearing a printed blue polo shirt with jeans and a hat. He states, "Juhi is very sweet. Adorable girl. I toh asked her father if he would let her get married to me." The interviewer asks him, "You asked him? What did he say?" Salman frowns and says, "No." When the interviewer asked why, Salman replied, "Don't fit the bill I guess."
In the video, the actor is quite soft-spoken. Fans commented on the video clip on Twitter and wondered who the girl he was talking about was. One Twitter user said, "Heartbreak moment (broken heart emoji)." While another stated, "..and he didn't marry anyone thereafter. Such an obedient child."
Juhi and Salman only acted together in the comedy Deewana Mastana (1997) with Anil Kapoor and Govinda. Salman had a special appearance in the David Dhawan film.
