Do Salman and Iulia have something more in common than their love for ‘Being Human’?

While speculation rages on about Salman Khan having allegedly given up on bachelorhood by getting engaged to Iulia Vantur – the big question on every Bhai fan’s bicep is - who the hell is Iulia Vantur?

First things first, in today’s age how can Salman go around dating a girl and never be ‘caught on camera’?

Oh wait, here’s what just popped up:

So what we know is that:

• Iulia (pronounced as Yulia) Vantur is Romanian.

• The lady did an item song in the forgettable Bollywood film O Teri, which was incidentally produced by Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri.

• And she has plenty of good looks (just check out her Instagram pics).

But that still leaves us with the question - WHO is she?

When in doubt turn to Google, but unfortunately - the Wiki page on Iulia Vantur is in Romanian. Though Google did translate the page into English for us, we would probably need another translator to make sense of that. Check out this sample on Iulia’s modelling career, which terms her as a ‘he’ and a ‘mannequin’.

Iulia Vântur seen in adolescence is a local fashion house. He went for the first time on stage as a model at age 15 and at 17 became the instructor of models in Iasi, Suceava and Botosani. As mannequin attended national fashion festivals, winning awards for “best mannequin model”. It was selected Miss Romania (but did not take part in the tour with the mannequin as a coach.

We Don’t Know If Salman Khan Is Engaged but Who Is Iulia Vantur?

Clearly, Google translation needs to up its game, but what we could figure is that Vantur is a TV presenter, model and actress, most known for hosting the popular and the longest running TV show in Romania called Dancing. She was also apparently a prime time news presenter.

Born in 1980, the 35-year-old is also a stage actress and has appeared in a Hollywood film titled Bunraku which featured actors like Demi Moore, Josh Hartnett and Woody Harrelson.

According to the page translated by Google, Vantur is totally into ‘Humanitiarian campaign’, and it lists a range of causes she associates with, from campaigns against domestic abuse to fighting for the environment. We’ll have to wait and watch if Salman’s Being Human foundation gets added to that list.

Iulia Vantur is definitely rooting for Salman’s charity foundation (Photo courtesy: <a href="http://assets.sport.ro/assets/protv/2011/08/09/image_galleries/17387/ce-cadou-a-primit-iulia-vantur-de-ziua-ei-din-partea-iubitului-ei-afla-ce-nu-stiai-despre-iulia-vantur_3.jpg">assets.sports.ro</a>)

The lady also attended the Faculty of Law in Iasi from 1999 - 2003 (that may come handy too).

But even as Salman’s fans start celebrating the star’s impending marriage to Iulia Vantur, the first official denial comes from the family in the form of his sister Arpita’s tweet:

So keep calm everyone, Salman Khan isn’t dabangg enough for a marriage, just yet.
