"He is a very nice person."
American actress Samantha Lockwood recently made headlines as she was spotted at Salman Khan’s Panvel farmhouse.

Since then, rumours surrounding the couple have begun to circulate.
The rumours have also brought Samantha into the limelight with many questioning who she is.

In regards to the dating rumours with Salman Khan, Samantha Lockwood said:
“I think people are unnecessarily spreading these rumours.
“Yes, I recently met Salman on his birthday and he is a very nice person.
“I urge everyone to not believe these baseless rumours.”
Samantha added: “I think people talk a lot.
“I think people can say a lot about nothing. I met Salman and he’s a very nice guy, that’s all there is to say about that.
“So I don’t know where people get that idea from.
“I mean I met him, I met Hrithik, nobody says anything about me and Hrithik.”
“So I don’t know where this news comes from but obviously, it gets spun out of proportion.”
She also said that Salman Khan’s film Sultan is her “favourite movie from Bollywood at the moment”.
Speaking about attending Salman’s birthday party, Samantha said:
“For me, everybody was just another person because I don’t know anybody truly.
“I just knew Salman, I had met him a couple of times before that so really, to me, he was the only celebrity that I knew.
“Then I started meeting some of the other people and came to learn that they were actors or actresses or directors or producers and so on.
“So, for me, it was a party with lovely people and then I came to learn who everybody was by being at the party.
“It was a lovely experience, everybody was just super nice and had nice conversations, a very elegant evening.”
Salman Khan celebrated his 56th birthday in December 2021 at his Panvel farmhouse with his close friends and family.
The guests at the party included Ibrahim Ali Khan, Mushtaq Sheikh, Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza.
