Salman Khan breaks his silence over Arbaaz Khan’s IPL betting scandal

Bollywood actor and filmmaker Arbaaz Khan admitted to police that he used to place bets during Indian Premier League or IPL matches. He also went up on saying his habit of betting was one of the major reasons which led to his divorce with Malaika. Around the same time Salman Khan’s Race 3 was on its verge of its release, hence actor was busy attending press conference. Even at press conference he avoided question related to his brother. But now, a month after the scandal, Salman Khan has finally opened up about his brother’s case.

In an recent interview to Filmfare, Salman expressed what he was going through when Arbaaz was summoned by the police. Salman told the film magazine, “When Arbaaz (Khan) was summoned (IPL betting case), I had to attend the Race 3 press conference. You can’t show what you’re going through. People, who’ve taken time out to watch you on TV or on social media, are there to enjoy. You can’t be depressed while promoting a film. That’s a battle that one will always have to fight. Personally, you could be down and out but you can’t ever show it.”

Salman Khan further added, “That can also go against you. Like some judge or a public prosecutor or some people will judge you saying, his verdict is coming up but he’s busy laughing and joking. But this is my job. I have to do this no matter what my parents, my family, my friends and I are going through.”

On work front, Salman’s Race 3 grossed over ₹285.88 crore till now. Right now Salman is busy with Dabangg Reloaded tour with Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Daisy Shah, Jacqueline Fernandez and Manish Paul. Soon he will start the shoot of Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat and Prabhudheva’s Dabangg 3.
