His brief cameo in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2008) won him wide acclaim but it was Dabangg as a producer and Dabangg 2 as director that brought out the star in Arbaaz Khan.

Salman Khan would bully Arbaaz Khan in his childhood

Arbaaz Khan is younger to Salman Khan and Sohail Khan is the youngest of the lot.


All three brothers studied at India’s most oldest and premium Scindia Boarding school in Gwalior. The brothers had a lot of fun in childhood. But all three had great respect for their father eminent script writer Salim Khan.

Since Arbaaz was younger to Salman hence Salman would bully him. Arbaaz recollects that many times Salman would beat him. Once when they were studying for their school exam, Salman, who was not much interested in studies, mistakenly learned History instead of Geography, which was suppose to be the exam next day.

The commercial made much headline in media and gave more publicity to Arbaaz and Malika.


Meanwhile after performing the ‘intimate commercial’ both Arbaaz and Malaika came close and started dating which lasted 5 years and in December 12,1998, the two tied the nuptial knot.

Since the movie was a rehash of Hollywood film ‘Sleeping with the enemy’ and had already been made in Bollywood twice as Rishi Kapoor’s Yaraana (1995) and Nana Patekar’s Agni Sakshi (1996) hence Daraar could not create miracles at box office.
