Salman has responded to comments about the quality of his acting, the fact that he has stolen his fans’ money, and how he invariably gets bogged down in controversies he has nothing to do with.
Shooting or having fun, it’s the same with ‘Bade Bhaiya’ on the sets!

In the promo Arbaaz introduced Salman as “the always Chulbul and my commanded bhaiya, Salman Khan”. As the two brothers begin to chat, Arbaaz reads hate speech about Salman, and the Bharat actor responds to them like a professional while remaining calm and composed.
The video shows Salman saying he doesn’t check the likes or comments on his posts after sharing them. Arbaaz read out a comment in which a social media user claims that Salman is “well settled” by taking their money and demanding it back. Salman says, “Paisa nahi churaya, shayad dil churaye honge (I have not stolen money, I must have stolen hearts).”
Another claims that Salman is a pro at ‘dikhawa wala acting (showboating)’. “Theek hai, monkey bhi kar lo. Dikhawe wale acts mein bhi na ek bohot bada seena aur bohot bada gurda chahiye hota hai (Okay, then you do it. Even to show off, you need a big heart and courage),” Salman replied.
Salman also says that not everyone can use social media and many people think it makes them anonymous, but the cybercrime team can track down perpetrators in a ‘second’. He also said that no matter how good an actor is, they can’t hide their true personality forever.
Salman also spoke about how, as a celebrity, even saying “no comment” gets blown up. “People make such a fuss about that ‘no comment’ and say he doesn’t want to speak, even though others are willing to talk about it,” he says.
Salman also noted that he is the one who is stuck with controversies he has nothing to do with, adding that his family is also being sucked in by this.
Arbaaz also shared a teaser of the show featuring his star-studded guest list, which featured Anil Kapoor, Kiara Advani, Ayushmann Khurrana, Farah Khan, Farhan Akhtar, Rajkumar Rao, Tiger Shroff and more. The teaser of Pinch 2 shows all these stars opening up and reacting to the trolls that occasionally attack them online.
Pinch Season 2 will stream from July 21.
