Arbaaz Khan’s confession of betting in the IPL matches has not only shocked a lot of people but also his brother, Salman Khan and his entire family. The actor confessed before the Thane police that he was involved in betting in the league’s matches for the last six years, and also had links with the underworld. Not only that, he further stated that he lost approx. 3 crores in the betting.
A friend of Arbaaz, regarding the controversy, said, “I don’t think anyone in the family knew about this (Arbaaz’s IPL betting). Arbaaz didn’t share this with anyone. Salman and the family came to know about it only when he was summoned to be interrogated. Now they’re waiting for Arbaaz to tell them details of what happened. No one in the family will persuade Arbaaz to talk. The family lives together. But each member is given space to what he wants.”
He adds, “They don’t know what hit them. I think neither Salim Saab nor Salman has interfered with Arbaaz’s life. The very public breakup with his wife Malaika Arora and his subsequent association with another woman….I don’t think anyone in the family was happy with this. Now this latest controversy is quite a setback.” The Khan family is yet to comment on the issue.
