    Ash Sallu old stuff now…Ash moved on and Sallu is still stuck. As to Dips Ranbir oh pls…Dips was no good for Ranbir…he is so handsome and young. Dips malligned him because of bitterness of being dumped. Women need to learn to accept relationship fallouts more gracefully. Preity is another ungraceful person who keeps dragging Ness’s name in all her paid press releases and despite the fact that there was zero compatibility between the two and no quesiton of love when she was seducing multiple men under his very nose, she still keeps on referring to her break up. Pathetic and Ungraceful. She needs to be slammed by media for these idiotic stunts.

  2. Ness had broken off with Preity Zinta before 3 yrs. Old story now. He has moved on and is getting married soon. Preity can hang around single jumping up and down on IPL pitch waving the flag harder and jumping on new guys everyday.

  3. Sallu, Aish ki jodi sebse haseen hai . sallu aaj bi aish ko dil jaan se chatha hai.
