For those who know Salman Khan and his anger, you know he is not the one who easily forgives and forgets. Unless, you are Shah Rukh Khan, of course. Salman Khan has bones to pick with many of his Bollywood peers and he refuses to acknowledge them even when they meet him in public. His rivalry with Vivek Oberoi is well-known, and so is his recent anger with Priyanka Chopra, after the latter walked of Bharat giving marriage as an excuse. And not many know this, but he also doesn't like Arjun Kapoor very much. Even though Salman is quite close to the Kapoor family, including Arjun's dad Boney Kapoor, sources claim that Bhai has been vindictive of Arjun.
We had recently reported about how Parineeti Chopra might promote her new movie, Namaste England, on Bigg Boss 12. But what about the movie's male lead, Arjun Kapoor? Why is he not coming on the show? As per a source close to the actor, Salman Khan, who is currently hosting the 12th season of Bigg Boss, has reportedly put his foot down on Arjun coming to the show. An insider told us, "Salman won't allow Arjun anywhere near the show till he is hosting it. The team even tried to convince him that Arjun and Parineeti won't come to his stage to avoid any confrontation, and they will go directly inside the house to interact with the inmates. However, Bhai outrightly rejected that idea."
For the uninitiated, Arjun Kapoor used to date Salman's sister Arpita (now married to Aayush Sharma) before he made his Bollywood debut. Salman was reportedly pissed off with Arjun when the latter broke off with her. Also, there are rumours that Arjun is dating Malaika Arora, who was earlier married to Salman's brother, Arbaaz. This also has not gone down well with the Tiger Zinda Hai star. Anyway, when Parineeti comes to promote her film on the show, we are curious to see if Salman Khan even bothers to mention Arjun at all.
Interestingly, Arjun had come on Bigg Boss in its eighth season to promote his film, Tevar, and Salman was hosting the show then. So we believe that it has more to do with the Malaika rumours that explain Bhai's current animosity.
