The last episode of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 surely made us wonder about what is really going on between the Ek Tha Tiger stars

Salman Khan is a pro at making us smile with his antics on the sets of television reality shows. And the latest that we included in the list was Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5, where he made an appearance with his Ek Tha Tiger ladylove Katrina Kaif.

And while we enjoyed and cherished Sallu bhai reliving his Hum Aapke Hain Koun…! moments with B-town’s dancing diva Madhuri Dixit, we couldn’t help but notice how Salman kept pampering his ‘good friend’ Kat. How…err…unusual, no? ‘Coz usually the pair refrains from acting overtly friendly for fear of setting off supposedly unwanted relationship rumours.

But this time it wasn’t so. The Tiger and his Zoya shared a very open and comfortable chemistry. And the moment when Salman cuddled the Chikni Chameli’s not-so-chubby cheeks just made for a perfect ‘awwww’ moment, no? But that wasn’t all! Salman’s hand kept lingering around darling Kat time and again. Ahem ahem.

Any clue what made the two relax those self-imposed rules of keeping a safe distance from each other in public? Take a look at these pics, dear readers, and tell us where do you think Salman and Katrina are heading…
