There was a buzz of late that Salman Khan had got engaged to rumoured girlfriend Iulia Vantur, and the duo was planning to get married next year.

While the rumours later turned out to be false, Salman said he was enjoying the buzz. In an interview with Pinkvilla, the superstar narrated how his engagement rumours started, adding that he was sleeping at that moment.

"I loved the rumour about my engagement. I felt, let the rumours about my engagement go on, what difference does it make?" said Salman when asked how he felt about the rumours.

The "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" actor said he was sleeping when the media started calling his father Salim Khan and congratulating him on his engagement, which perplexed his father.

Revealing how the entire engagement rumour with Iulia Vantur started, Salman said: "This news came out in the foreign media because Iulia's friend, whose name is also Iulia, was wearing a ring. She gave that ring to Iulia (Salman's friend) to wear and suddenly the news was splashed all over, but in five minutes Iulia cleared the air that it was her friend's ring and there was no engagement, nothing. But by then it was all aish (celebration) for the media here."

Salman and the Romanian beauty's reported affair started doing rounds since 2013 as the two were reportedly seen together a number of times. But there was never a confirmation from either Salman or Iulia of their supposed love affair.
