2.     Salman  Khan and  Aishwarya Rai met and  fell in love  on the sets  of this  film. Their  real-life bonding made their  romantic scenes look  undeniably authentic .It was  very difficult  to say where  Salman and Aishwarya ended and Sameer  and  Nandini began. Salman played Sameer a  visiting student  from Italy who comes to India to learn  music  from Nandini father played  by the  awe-inspiring  Vikram  Gohkale.
