Salman Khan Breaks His Silence Over Arbaaz Khan's IPL Betting Scandal

After not speaking up about his brother Arbaaz Khan's involvement in the IPL betting scam, Salman Khan has finally broken his silence on the same. Here's what the Race 3 star has to say...

Finally, speaking to a section of the media about the reason of him staying quiet, Salman said, "When Arbaaz (Khan) was summoned (IPL betting case), I had to attend the Race 3 press conference. You can’t show what you’re going through. You can’t be depressed while promoting a film. I have to do this no matter what my parents, my family, my friends and I are going through. That’s a battle that one will always have to fight.”

So is this always a price one pays for being famous? “(It is) something which is a challenge, not just for me but any other actor. Even though you’re going through trouble, you have to be out there promoting your film, romancing your heroines. No matter how down you are, how messed up you are, that shot has to be done right. You have to make people laugh on the show even though you could be going through so much.”

For those who've come in late, Arbaaz’s name came up during the interrogation sessions when cops arrested bookie Sonu Jalan in connection with the IPL betting racket. However, reports suggest that Arbaaz was made a witness in the case later.
