Why was Katrina Kaif not invited to Salman Khan’s Iftar bash?

Looks like Salman Khan’s new ladylove Iulia Vantur has taken over his former flame’s position in the superstar’s Khandaan!

It’s not only Salman Khan, but the superstar’s large-hearted and accommodating family too that seems to prefer to keep a safe distance from Sallu’s ex, Katrina Kaif, who was once considered an inseparable part of the affluent Khandaan. If our jasoos who keeps a close eye on the Being Human actor is to be believed, Katrina is not seen as often at Sallu’s bandstand Galaxy Apartments as she was earlier. And there are lots of reasons for that.

First, the growing ‘friendship’ between Katrina and her alleged boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor during Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani was the major reason for the Salman-Katrina breakup, we hear. But Sallu agreed to do Yash Raj Films’ Ek Tha Tiger with Kat. Then the superbrat Khan wasn’t happy with his Partner co-star’s decision to do Jab Tak Hai Jaan with his rival Shahrukh Khan. This not only irked Sallu, but also his family, who were quite fond of KK. We hear that the leggy lass was good friends with Salman’s younger sisters – Arpita and Alvira Khan – to the extent that Kat was treated with special care during the Ramzan Iftar dinner last year.

But this year things aren’t the same. Sallu’s sisters seem to have decided to stay away from their once-upon-a-time good friend. It’s unlikely that there will be any Iftar or Eid party for Ms Kaif with the Khan family, especially since Salman himself is not in town to personally invite her, large hearted and forgiving as he has been known to be. A few days ago Arbaaz Khan celebrated his birthday, but KK didn’t feature in the list of invitees. After the Dhoom:3 lady suddenly took the call to sell Sallu’s nishaani, the luxury car he reportedly gave her, B-towners have had no option but to think that their love story is finally over, as is their friendship.

To make that more credible, we found leaked pictures of Sallu having dinner with his family, with alleged Romanian girlfriend Iulia Vantur present; the Sallu-Iulia-on-a-picnic photo went viral a few days ago, remember? Interestingly, this photo surfaced at a time when pictures of Ranbir-Katrina holidaying in Spain were making a splash everywhere. Coincidence?

Now the big question is: On the auspicious occasion of Eid, will Katrina make it on to the Khans’ guest list or will she be given the royal ignore? What do you think, Bollywoodlifers?
