MUMBAI: Actor-producer Arbaaz Khan says his brother and superstar Salman Khan, who has turned 50, is very precious to him and that their bond is very strong.
“He [Salman] is very precious to me... our family is such that we are ready to die for each other. We are always together. We lead our lives individually and don’t interfere in each other’s matters but in the hour of need we stand together,” Arbaaz said, responding to a question about his connect with the older brother.
