Recently, in an interview with ETimes, Arbaaz Khan opened up about being called Salman Khan's brother or Malaika Arora's husband. Talking about the same, the Fashion actor revealed that there was a time when he was worried about being known because of his family's label. Arbaaz mentioned:

"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."


Further, in the same interview, Arbaaz even revealed that with time, he realised that he did not need to prove anything to anyone. He even said that he understood that there is no point in changing people's mindsets. Elaborating on the same, Arbaaz mentioned that seeking validation from yourself is more important. In his words:

"You know, I guess there are things that you can't change. There's no point changing people's mindset. All you have to do is just restrain yourself. I've realised 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 day you learn to seek validation from yourself, you will be genuinely happy about your existence and you will learn to celebrate achievements."

"We have a better equation now. We are far more mature. We’re just happier, calmer people. He’s a wonderful man, I only wish him the best in life. Sometimes, people are wonderful but they just aren’t great together. That’s just how it is. I would always wish him well."
