According to several reports in the recent past, something had been brewing between Huma Qureshi and Sohail Khan. Rumours suggested that the latter often showered the former with expensive gifts. And the actress has also been seen at various private gatherings at Salman Khan‘s Panvel farmhouse and also their house. However, Sohail’s wife Seema Khan had put these rumours to rest and stated that Huma was a good friend of Arpita and Salman and that’s why she visted the Khans on various occassions. She also asserted that Sohail and Huma never hung out with each other.
Even Huma took to Twitter to clear the air and wrote that Sohail is like a brother to her. Now, during a recent interview with Hindustan Times, the actress was asked about being linked up to Sohail and she said:
What really hurts is that without knowing the truth about my life, they (media) go ahead and put these stories. And I’ll tell you why they do it; they do it because they want to take away all the attention from my hard work. They want to show that whatever I have achieved in my life is because of my closeness to a particular man, who may be coming from an influential family or is influential himself. That is disrespectful… It’s easy for people to say that she is doing well because she is close to someone. That is demeaning. I don’t see that happening to any of the industry kids, to be very honest.
