As we all know that Bollywood Arbaaz Khan has worked for over 30 years in the industry. Film Daraar actor has opened up on how he feels being labeled as Salim Khan's son, Salman Khan's brother, and Malaika Arora's ex-husband. He further emphasized that there is no point in changing people’s mindsets and further highlighted that these labels do make him feel exhausted and taxed up mentally.
In a media chat, Arbaaz Khan disclosed whether he felt the need to stand out and create his own identity as an artist and not let other labels define him. He revealed, “There was a time when I was a little conscious and worried about that. Now that I look back, it came for no reason and it didn't make sense. And that used to bother me at times when I was called Salim Khan’s son, Salman Khan's brother, or probably at one time, Malaika Arora’s husband for that matter.”
“But, you know, I guess there are things that you can’t change. There’s no point in changing people’s mindsets. All you have to do is just restrain yourself. I’ve realized that I don’t have to prove anything to anybody. I mean, the exercise of proving things to people is such a futile exercise. It's exhausting and taxing,” the Dabangg actor told.
Arbaaz Khan emphasized that the day one learns to seek validation from himself/herself, one will be genuinely happy about their existence and will learn to celebrate achievements.
On the work front, Arbaz Khan was seen in the web series Tanaav along with actors Danish Husain, Ekta Kaul, Manav Vij, M. K. Raina, Rajat Kapoor, Satyadeep Mishra, Shashank Arora, Sumit Kaul, Sukhmani Sadana, Waluscha De Sousa and Zarina Wahab. It premiered on SonyLIV on 11 November 2022.
