Salman Khan and Iulia Vantur may not have made it official, but reports are rife that they are set to get married by the end of this year. What gave credence to the rumours is their joint appearance at Preity Zinta-Gene Goodenough's lavish reception bash in Mumbai.

According to a Pinkvilla report, the superstar is quite shy and embarrassed about the attention he has been getting. Apparently, close friends and relatives have been sending congratulatory flowers and gifts to his residence.

However, since there has been no official announcement yet, this can, at best, be considered a speculation.

While there's no way to confirm this event, what went on at Preity-Gene's party is surely a good start to a beautiful future together. Salman apparently bumped into Abhishek Bachchan on his way in, after which he dragged him to the dance floor and even introduced Iulia as his girlfriend to friend Shah Rukh Khan.

This piece of news comes close on the heels of a bunch of photos that went viral. In those, Iulia was seen holding on to Salman Khan's mother Salma Khan's hand tightly as they made their way out of the Mumbai airport.

A few months ago, Salman and Iulia were spotted holidaying in Dubai. Although there were reports that the actor was in the city for a store launch, the pictures suggest otherwise. This apart, the Romanian actress has often seen in pictures taken on the sets of Salman's next film "Sultan." She was also earlier spotted on the set of reality show "Bigg Boss."
