Really? Wimbledon 2017 finalist Roger Federer has something in common with Arbaaz Khan!


We all know that famous Bollywood scriptwriter Salim Khan has three sons- Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan, and Sohail Khan and is also a father of two daughters-Alvira Agnihotri and Arpita Khan Sharma- his adopted daughter. But the story of his adopted son Rajesh Khan is going viral on WhatsApp. Yes! Dabangg Salman has another brother who is a twin of Arbaaz Khan.

The picture of the so-called twin brother of Arbaaz named Rajesh Khan is none other than that of tennis great, Roger Federer! According to the message doing rounds on WhatsApp, “Salim Khan had 4 sons: Salman, Sohail, Arbaaz and Rajesh. (Arbaaz and Rajesh were twins) Salim wanted all of them to join the film industry. However, Rajesh refused to become an actor because of his love and passion for tennis. When thrown out of the house for not obeying his father, he moved to Switzerland and changed his name from Rajesh to Roger and pursued his career in tennis. Today he is one of the greatest players to have played the sport.” The dim-witted funny WhatsApp forward ends with a motivational message- Determination and passion can take you places.


If this message of Swiss Maestro Roger Federer being Salman Khan’s brother has given you a bout of laughter and make you gag, then we are sorry. Time and again, fans have compared the similarities between these two stars. The two bear an uncanny resemblance in the looks but the two of them being long-separated twins is entirely a different story.

Now to clear the air for once and all, Roger Federer and Arbaaz Khan can be each other’s doppelgangers but are definitely not twins! And Salim Khan is still a father of five and not six with any Rajesh being part of a big family. As for Federer, he was born in Basel, Switzerland on August 8, 1981.
