Arbaaz Khan was feverishly addicted to gambling and did not realise that he was draining himself, wife and family of a massive amount of earnings and savings.
Reportedly, no money changed hands between the bookie Sonu Jalan and him for Arbaaz's bets in IPL matches. Whether it did or not, Arbaaz was in the red at almost every given point.
What happened next?
Arre yaar aur paise lagata hoon... itna, utna... main is baar zaroor jeet jaunga--- that was the story as it is in every gambler's house.
Now, it has come to light that recently Arbaaz
tried to distance himself from Jalan, following which Jalan became rather
aggressive in blackmailing the actor into attending public events.
Talking to Times Of India, inspector Pradeep Sharma, senior police inspector from Thane anti extortion cell, has confirmed, "After this, Jalan started harassing Arbaaz to accompany him to various public functions like local Ganesh mandals and Holi festivities so that he could flaunt his Bollywood connections and gather more clients."
For those who've come in late, we brought you an EXCLUSIVE chat with Salim Khan last night wherein he raised a few points, in the wake of Arbaaz's name cropping up from Jalan's diary.
