Salman Khan's Playful Proposal: Sharmin Segal Recalls Childhood Encounter

Segal fondly recounted her first meeting with Salman Khan, which took place on the sets of the iconic film Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. According to Segal, she was merely a toddler of two or three when Khan, in a playful manner, jokingly proposed marriage to her. Reflecting on the incident, Segal humorously mentioned how she responded with a firm “No” to Khan’s proposal, indicating her lack of understanding of the concept of marriage at that tender age.

Recalling the incident with a hint of amusement, Segal admitted that, as a child, she tended to reject everything presented to her. Despite her early rejection of Khan’s proposal, Segal confessed to still being a fan of his work, particularly mentioning her admiration for his hit song “O O Jaane Jaana” from the movie Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya.

Interestingly, Segal tied the knot with businessman Aman Mehta in November 2023, marking a significant contrast to her childhood response to marriage proposals.

Sharmin Segal, who garnered attention for her portrayal of Manisha Koirala’s daughter in Heeramandi, directed by her uncle Sanjay Leela Bhansali, continues to be in the limelight for her recent projects. The period drama, set against the backdrop of pre-partition Lahore, boasts a star-studded cast including Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjeeda Sheikh, Aditi Rao Hydari, and Richa Chadha, receiving accolades from both fans and fellow celebrities alike.

Segal’s anecdote serves as a charming reminder of the playful interactions that often unfold behind the scenes in the world of Bollywood.
