Arbaaz Khan hasn’t invited brother Salman Khan on his show and he has a solid reason
The concept of a celebrity-oriented talk shows has been a successful trend in Bollywood. After Karan Johar, Neha Dhupia and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan is all set to make his debut as a chat show host. The Dabangg actor is coming up with his talk show called the ‘Pinch,’ which will be graced by several A-listers. What makes it different from all the other talk shows is the fact that all the celebrity guests will be voicing out their opinions about online trolls and how it affects their personal life.
Arbaaz Khan’s Pinch will be graced by B-townies like Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and others. However, his own brother and superstar Salman Khan will be giving it a miss. But, why so? Well, at its launch event, Arbaaz Khan was quizzed about the same and he had a very sensible reply. Arbaaz feels that he shouldn’t always rely on Salman Khan and at times he has to do to things that prove that he is good on his own.

The actor said, “My brother (Salman Khan) is a superstar, I love him and he has done a lot for me, my family and everybody. I, as an individual, have done more than 65 films and however good or bad they have been, people know me and I work hard. So, there are times when you want to do things and you want to prove things that you are good on your own.” On the brighter side, Arbaaz revealed that while Salman won’t be seen in the first season of his chat show, chances are that will appear in the next season, if it’s a success.
“I have my own relationship with Bhai Salman and it shouldn’t be like every time I go up to him and ask that ‘I am coming up with a show and either you appear at the beginning or end it.’ In fact, such has happened that I have done it and showed him a few episodes and Salman said, ‘Why don’t you have me on your show?’ to which I replied, ‘Salman, I would love to have you on the show but if I do the second season. Let me do this one season without you.’ And this was just to feel good about me. Salman was proud of me and he said that if I do the next season, he will definitely come,” added Arbaaz.
Meanwhile, Arbaaz Khan will be producing the third instalment of Salman Khan's Dabangg series.
