Arbaaz Khan started trending on Twitter for probably the first time in his life on Saturday, after news of his alleged involvement in IPL bets broke out. As per reports, the actor had placed bets for about Rs 2.80 crore through a bookie named Sonu Jalan, who has been in judicial custody since 2012.
Khan was called in for questioning by Thane police on Friday, and the actor-producer admitted that he had been placing bets for the last six years. Khan, along with a few other high-profile betters were named by Jalan during interrogation. Police said they have photographic and electronic evidence of Arbaaz and Jalan being in touch.
Twitter has been quick to observe that Arbaaz, who is more famous for being Salman Khan’s brother, is suddenly making news for something he himself has done.
Here are a few reactions:
According to sources, Thane Police has stopped all investigations on #ArbaazKhan after seeing his bank statements. In fact constable Patil gave him Rs 100 with a bidi and said “yeh le, minimum balance to maintain kiya kar, fine lag jaayega…”

Won’t blame @arbaazSkhan for betting. After producing movies like Dabangg 2 and Dolly ki Doli one will obviously look to make money.#ArbaazKhan

I think, Khan brothers compete with each other for taking law in their hands. Earlier Salman and now Arbaz. Anyways nothing will happen for sure this time as well.@BeingSalmanKhan
