As per sources, Arjun who shared a close relationship with his mom said she spoke about how close she was to Salman Khan. He also spoke about his closeness to Salman.
“Salman Bhai was my friend, my father-figure, older brother, everything at that point. He was an older brother I never had and he made me realise how important it is to have an elder brother. The last call my mother made from the hospital bed was to Salman bhai. She knew about her condition by then. She thanked him for me having become an actor because of him. He told her that he would take her abroad but within a week, she passed away. He came to the funeral. Till he had come, the media was standing almost on top of the pyre. But he came and ensured I got some privacy. When he came home that day, it was the tightest hug I have ever given him,” he said.
Truly a friend you can depend on in times of need, is our Salman Khan.
