After they posed together at the premiere of Salman Khan’s last release, Tubelight, Sonakshi Sinha and Iulia Vantur have been spending a lot of time together. From attending parties together to going out for a late night spin about town in Salman’s swanky white car, B-town’s new BFFs seem to be enjoying each other’s company.

The 36-year-old Romanian actress-model dropped a Hinglish single while Sonakshi has released her single, “Aaj Mood Ishqoholic”, given playback for Akira and also collaborated with Badshah and Diljeet Dosanjh for “Move Your Lakh”. Sonakshi and Iulia enjoy discussing music.

“In July, when the Khans were invited for a party at politician Sushil Kumar Shinde’s home, Iulia and Sonakshi drove in with Salman, sitting together in the back seat of his SUV,” informs a source close to the family.

Last week, the duo hung out at Arbaaz Khan’s 50th birthday bash with Iulia complimenting Sonakshi on her dress. “They didn’t arrive together but were chatting away with Salman’s sister Alvira and brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri and even stepped outside to pose together for the gathered paparazzi,” adds the source.
