No in­ter­fer­ence from Sal­man bhai in my work, says Ar­baaz

Ac­tor-producer Ar­baaz Khan has rub­bished re­ports that said his older brother, su­per­star Sal­man Khan, was help­ing him choose films. “They are just myths… not true at all,” says Ar­baaz. “Sal­man doesn’t even know half the time what I’m work­ing on. Some­times, he only gets to know about a film of mine when the re­lease date is close. We don’t sit down and dis­cuss our pro­fes­sional lives with each other.”

The 49-year-old Ar­baaz had bhai Sal­man as co-star in sev­eral films, in­clud­ing Hello Brother and the two su­per­hit Da­bangg movies that Ar­baaz also pro­duced. The re­ports in ques­tion claimed that Sal­man had a say in what choices Ar­baaz made both as ac­tor and producer. Not true, em­pha­sises Ar­baaz.

“[Sal­man’s] work is easy to fol­low be­cause he doesn’t do so much work,” says Ar­baaz. “[About] my work, he might have an idea that I’m busy with some­thing, but he wouldn’t know the de­tails.”

It’s dif­fer­ent when Sal­man and Ar­baaz work to­gether — not that bhai in­ter­feres, but he def­i­nitely wants de­tails.

The ru­mours might ran­kle, but Ar­baaz prefers to brush them off. “We’re very close and we re­spect each other,” says Ar­baaz. “Sal­man has achieved far more, and we’re re­ally happy with that. As long as we do what­ever we like, it doesn’t bother us.”
