“There’s a coward in Bollywood, who is a bhai."
The raging war of words between Bollywood actor Salman Khan and TV anchor Arnab Goswami has taken a nasty turn.
Salman Khan enjoys a large fan base in India and across the globe. However, while many people adore him, there are also people who do not.
Amongst those who are not big fans of Salman, is Arnab Goswami. He has called out the actor for staying quiet on the ongoing Sushant Singh Rajput controversy.
The late actor reportedly committed suicide on 14 June 2020. His untimely death sparked outrage in India and abroad.
Sushant’s death also lifted the lid off many of Bollywood’s dark secrets.
He also brought up Salman’s silence over Disha Salian’s death. Not only that, but Goswami also questioned Salman’s role in the drug case in Bollywood.
Stars like Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh and more were questioned in relation to consuming and procuring drugs.
Surprisingly, the big stars in Bollywood like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan have remained quiet.
This has caused many fans and the media to question their relation to Bollywood’s drug nexus.
Currently, Salman Khan is hosting the popular Indian reality show, Bigg Boss 14.
On the show, Salman indirectly made a sarcastic remark about Arnab Goswami last weekend during an episode. Salman said:
“Be it Bigg Boss or any other show, you have to play the right game. You can’t do anything for TRP.
“You all are going good. I have never seen the response you are getting. To make it bigger and better, be honest and real.
“Don’t say nonsense, lie or shout. That’s not the point. They would shut your channel.”
In response to Salman Khan’s comment, Arnab Goswami slammed the actor as a coward and even referred to his age. He said:
“There’s a coward in Bollywood, who is a bhai. Bhai says, ‘main ishaaron se baat karta hoon, channel band ho jaayega, channel band karwa denge.’
“This fake, cowardly, elderly bahi, who’s now a senior citizen, he does not dare to take my name.”
He also added that Salman Khan was going around to politicians seeking help in registering a case against India’s Republic channel according to IBTimes.
As of yet, Salman Khan has not publicly responded to Arnab Goswami’s jibe against him.
