Reflecting on Beachside Memories with Salman Khan’s Beloved Canine My Jaan


In a nostalgic trip down memory lane, Bollywood actress Preity Zinta brought smiles to her fans’ faces as she shared a cherished memory involving the beloved former pet of Salman Khan, My Jaan. The adorable canine companion, who sadly crossed the rainbow bridge in 2009, was the focal point of a day filled with sun, surf, and sand that Preity recounted in a recent social media post.

Sharing an endearing image on Instagram of her joyful time with My Jaan on a Goa beach, Preity wrote, “One of my favourite photos and memory. This was taken in Goa… #Myjaan n me on the beach. She made sure no one came near me. I thought I would take her for a walk, but it was definitely the other way around. @beingsalmankhan warned me that she might drag me all over the beach, but I was determined. My arm didn’t feel like it was attached to my body anymore but it was soooo much fun! I’m so happy the moment was captured in this photo.”

Preity’s recount of the spirited day underscored the strong bond between humans and their four-legged friends, emphasizing the unique and irreplaceable place they hold in our lives. My Jaan was not just a pet; she was a part of the close-knit Bollywood community and enjoyed a loving relationship with many in the industry, including Preity.

Salman Khan himself is well-known for his deep affection for dogs. The actor’s love for his pets is evident in the names he affectionately bestows upon them; apart from My Jaan, he has cared for dogs named Saint, Mowgli, and Veer, though the latter also passed away in 2015. Unfortunately, Salman has faced the loss of other cherished dogs, with My Son passing away the same year as My Jaan and My Love departing from this world in 2018.

The Indian film industry has long celebrated the warmth and loyalty of canine companions, often featuring them in poignant roles on the silver screen. The absence of such beloved animals is always keenly felt by their owners and friends, as evidenced by the emotion in Preity’s reflective post.

On a positive note, for those who have been longing to see Preity Zinta grace the big screen again, there’s exciting news. The actress is set to star alongside Sunny Deol in Rajkumar Santoshi’s upcoming film, ‘Lahore 1947’. This historical drama has generated considerable buzz as it reunites the actors after their previous successful collaborations. Rajkumar Santoshi, a seasoned director with a portfolio of notable films, has lauded Preity’s dedication and naturality in front of the camera. “Preity Zinta is again playing a very important role for the silver screen with Lahore 1947. She totally invests herself in every character she plays and makes the audience believe she is made for that role,” Santoshi remarked.

Produced by Aamir Khan Productions, ‘Lahore 1947’ marks the 17th milestone production under the esteemed banner and promises to bring together the celebrated trio: Preity Zinta, Sunny Deol, and filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi, accompanied by the production expertise of Aamir Khan. This partnership rekindles the magic of their earlier filmography, which included hits like ‘The Hero: Love Story of a Spy’, ‘Farz’, and ‘Bhaiaji Superhit’.

As Preity Zinta revisits fond memories with her furry friend, she concurrently looks forward to creating new ones with her anticipated return to cinema. Her heartfelt tribute to My Jaan continues to resonate with pet lovers everywhere, reminding us all of the timeless bond between humans and animals, a theme that often intertwines beautifully with the art of storytelling on film.
