Just like a barrage of Bollywood celebrities like Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Daisy Shah, Himesh Reshammiya, we could go on till tomorrow, even Arjun Kapoor admits of being indebted to Salman Khan for his professional career. Once shamed for being an obese, Salman encouraged him to work tirelessly, shed those extra kilos, be in shape and prepare to be an actor. When he bagged his debut film, Ishaqzaade in 2012, the actor thanked Salman Khan as much as he did his mom, the late Mona Shourie Kapoor.
However, this is Bollywood, and relationships can be smoothed or wrecked overnight. This is exactly what happened between Salman Khan and Arjun Kapoor. At the AIB Knockout in 2015, that ignited a major controversy because of usage of expletives and adult humor, one of the members of the team apparently cracked a joke on Salman Khan’s adoptive sister, Arpita Khan. Arjun Kapoor, who was one of the people being roasted, had to keep a straight face because of his proximity with Salman. When this news reached Salman’s ears, all hell broke lose and the actor cut-off all ties with the Tevar actor.
Three years later, Arjun Kapoor has extended his hand of friendship to the Khan family again. A report suggests when Salman was convicted in Jodhpur, the actor was in touch was all his sisters. Now, both Arjun Kapoor and we have to wait for Bhai’s approval. As for Arjun, he’s trying his best to make sure Salman Khan includes him in his list of friends and well-wishers again. After all, he’s Salman Ka Fan.
