Without taking names, Salman took a dig at the shouting machine that is Arnab Goswami. He mocked his routine yelling on new channels and also took a dig at Arnab’s famous ‘Nation Wants To Know’ punch line.
While talking to Contestant Rubina, Salman reminded her that he is not a contestant and he is not shouting.
In an obvious jibe at the news anchor, Salman said,“The level at which you can raise your voice, I will bring my level lower than that. I tend to discuss specific points…Because I believe that you don’t convey your points across by simply yelling. It doesn’t happen at all.”
Arnab has been constantly provoking Salman Khan by bringing up his name in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. His bone of contention seems to be Salman’s apparent silence on the matter. Arnab routinely brought his name up and after being called out on it, he got personal in his attacks.
What Provoked Salman Khan
In his now infamous broadcast Goswami had yelled at Salman by asking, “Where’s that Salman, who used to talk so much? Where is he hiding? Why does he not raise a single voice against the drugs mafia? … I am asking this question by naming Salman Khan. Where are you, Salman Khan? Not a single statement or tweet. Why are you silent on the entire episode of Disha Salian? Why are you silent on the murder of Sushant (Singh Rajput)? Which city are you in Salman? Which country are you in Salman? You are a person, who speaks against the pulse of the nation. You will read the dialogues of Bigg Boss when they are written for you by others.”
Salman Khan seems to have had enough of his questions. In an indirect jibe to Goswami’s personal favorite punchline, Salman told contestant Jann Kumar Sanu,“I don’t want to say ‘this wants to know, that wants to know.’ What’s your relationship with Nikki Tamboli?”
This is the second time that Salman took a shot at Arnab Goswami. Last week he had said,
“Ham Sab ko TRP chahiye. But, us keliye, you will have to play the right game. Ye nahi ki TRP aap kuch bhi karke le ke aayein. Wo aap khelo, sachcha game khelo. Be honest to yourself….. Bahut achcha ja rahe ho tum log. I have never seen the response you are getting. To make it bigger and better, be honest and real. Not by ki yaar yeh bakwas kar raha hai, jhoot bol raha hai, chilla raha hai. Khwah Makhwah! Point hi nahi hai. Woh aapke channel ko bandh kar denge.”
(While we all want TRP, it only fair to play the right game. Play honestly, play the right game. Be it Bigg Boss or any other show, you have to play the right game. You can’t do anything for TRP. I have never seen the response you are getting. Be honest and real to win big. Not by speaking nonsense, lying and shouting unnecessarily. This is pointless. They will shut down your channel.)”
