Does Salman Khan still prefer Katrina Kaif over Iulia Vantur?

Buzz is that Kat was the first choice for O Teri item song, which ultimately went into the hands of Iulia Vantur. So what’s the real story?

Everyone knows that Salman Khan has vowed to stay away from Katrina Kaif’s life because he doesn’t want her present (or ex – we are still confused!) boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor to have an issue about her proximity with Sallu. While that is sweet of him, we heard, that there was a whole lot of confusion about the lady who would do the item song in Salman Khan’s brother-in-law, Atul Agnihotri’s next, O Teri. Why? We’ll tell you.

We had told you earlier that Elli Avram, who impressed Sallu miyaan during Bigg Boss 7 was supposed to this item number. However, Atul himself cleared the air and said that she’s not the one. Eventually, the song went into the hands of Romanian beauty Iulia Vantur – Sallu bhai‘s alleged current muse.

So, you ask? There’s another interesting fact about this item number. What if we say that the song was first offered to another of Salman’s ex-flame? Yes, you guessed it right, we’re talking about none other than Katrina Kaif. A trusted source was quoted by a daily as saying, “First the song was offered to Katrina and it was she who advised Atul to take a lesser known actor (Iulia) so as not to overpower the newcomers in the film.”

Interesting, isn’t it? We know that Salman calls the shots when it comes to any of his home productions. Be it Sohail Khan, Arbaaz Khan or Atul Agnihotri – everybody listens to him when it comes to casting. Seems like he still hasn’t gotten over Kat’s charm. Otherwise, why else would Sallu choose Katrina first, and then settle for Iulia? Hey, we’re talking about the item number in O Teri; what did you think? Wink!
