Bollywood's 'Bhai' Salman Khan recently made an appearance on brother Arbaaz Khan's chat show 'Pinch' Season 2, where he was asked about the people he is following on social media. Arbaaz mentioned that while the actor has 42.2 million followers on Instagram, he follows only 27 people.

He gave Salman three options – Katrina Kaif, Sangeeta Bijlani, and Athiya Shetty, and asked him to guess which of the three he wasn't following on Instagram. While Salman guessed Sangeeta, Arbaaz let him know it was actually Athiya. Sallu went on to apologise to the actress with folded hands and said he will follow her from then on.

While the actress herself is yet to react to the segment, her father and actor Suniel Shetty found the gesture cute. Speaking to a daily, Suniel said, “Salman is family. Whatever he does he does from his heart. When he said sorry to Athiya on screen, it is the cutest thing to happen. They have a beautiful relationship. As for me, I cherish my relationship with him. And, it takes a man to say sorry. Fantastic!”

The show featured a segment where Salman was told about the comments people left for him online. He was also shown a comment that called him an expert at “dikhawa wala acting” (showboating). He responded, “Theek hai, aap bhi kar lo. Dikhawe wale acting mein bhi na ek bohot bada seena aur bohot bada gurda chahiye hota hai (Okay, then you do it too. Even to show off, you need a big heart and courage).”
