A video of a journalist Arnab Goswami is making a splash on social media platforms. In the clip, which has been viewed by millions, he is deriding and challenging Bollywood superstar Salman Khan in a hysterical manner.
"Where is Salman Khan? In which country is he hiding? Why is he not speaking a word on drug mafia in Bollywood?," the journalist can be seen hollering at the top of his voice during a programme on his Hindi television channel 'Republic Bharat'.
Goswami continued his tirade against the 'Dabangg' actor with exaggerated hand movements: "There is not a single tweet on the matter of Disha Salian. Why are you silent on the murder of Sushant Singh Rajput? In which city are you living, Salman?"

The anchor even accused Salman of being a man who speaks against the pulse of the nation.

Arnab's diatribe elicited a volley of responses. While a lot of people had fun, making sardonic comments on his frenzied style, a few posted an old interview in which he is confessing that he's a 'total fan' of Salman.

"People should do their PhD thesis on you. There will be books written on you. You are a subject of academic research. Sociologists are trying to deconstruct your phenomenon & impact on the society. I'm a total fan" @BeingSalmanKhan 🤣🤐😬 https://t.co/e2qjdDOPjt pic.twitter.com/MK3s46Pq6O
