EXCLUSIVE: Arbaaz Khan on how Salman Khan deals with trolls: He’s a big star, people do that to get his attention
Salman Khan is one of the biggest superstars in Bollywood. He is the heartthrob of the industry who has ruled for a long time with characters like Prem, Chulbul Pandey, Tiger and many more. But with all the love and support also comes a dark side which is trolling. It was done on paper in the earlier days and now it is done by faceless anonymous users on social media what we call the dark web. In an exclusive chat with us, actor-producer and Salman Khan’s brother Arbaaz khan opened up about how the Dabanng star deals with trolls. Arbaaz revealed that Salman is quite unaffected by the trolls as people only do it because he is a big star and they want his attention.
Arbaaz told Bollywood Bubble, “We have on one end a very senior actor who has been around for like so many years. Salman, who is 30 plus years. Seen the no social media days and enjoyed that part. Negativity was not so much coming from the outside world, it probably came from some segments of the media when your work was not liked. You knew who they were, so if it was newspaper or journalist, you knew who was not writing good things about you. Now you don’t know who is not writing good things about you, there are millions of people, faceless people who are writing who don’t have any kind of limit to saying what they want to say.”
When asked if Salman is only trolled as people want to get his attention because they don’t know him that well, “Salman is such a big star people do that to draw his attention. Sometimes you know writing good about him may go unnoticed, but you say something bad about him so there is a good chance that he will probably notice it or somebody around him will bring it to his notice.”
