So, it is official. Salman Khan will not be present at his ex-girlfriend and co-star Katrina Kaif’s wedding.  The actor left for Riyadh on Wednesday night, closing all possibility of him attending the wedding. “Salman has refrained from talking about Katrina in the recent past even though he does speak about her normally during interviews. It was a conscious decision from his end not to be a part of her life anymore,” says a source.

Though Salman and Katrina had dated for a few years before moving on, Katrina is still close to Salman’s family. A lot of his memes have been doing the rounds ever since news of the wedding between her and Vicky Kaushal gained momentum.  

Salman’s brother Sohail Khan, brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, actress Shilpa Shetty who was Salman’s heroine in films like Garv, Phir Milenge and Shaadi Karke Phas Gaye Yaar, anchor and performer Maniesh Paul, comedian Sunil Grover and Salman’s Dabangg 3 heroine Saiee Manjrekar were also spotted at the private airport at Kalina, Mumbai. They were leaving for Riyadh for their performances on December 9 and 10.

Interestingly, Jacqueline Fernandez, another of Salman’s heroines, who has been talking to the Enforcement Directorate on her alleged links with conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar, could not be part of the tour as scheduled because she is not allowed to leave the country till the issue is sorted.

Earlier, Salman was a bit concerned about the tour because Shilpa’s husband Raj Kundra was in custody over a porn videos case. However, that issue is temporarily settled. “They were keen to get Daisy Shah on board at the last moment to replace Jacqueline, but the paperwork is not complete, and she has so far not been able to leave for Riyadh,” says a source.

“It will be interesting to see whether Salman will get one of the better background performers to dance with him on the show if no actress is able to make it there,” the source adds.
