Actor Arbaaz Khan on Wednesday told Aaj Tak that Aishwarya Rai may have something to do with fellow actor Vivek Oberoi's outburst against Salman Khan.
Vivek had on Tuesday alleged that Salman had telephoned him 41 times in a single night and warned him to keep away from actresses Aishwarya Rai, Rani Mukherjee and Somi Ali, or else he would kill him.
Salman left for London early on Wednesday, but before leaving denied Vivek's allegation and said he would issue a detailed denial on his return.
Arbaaz denied that his elder brother had threatened Oberoi and dismissed his allegations as 'false and baseless'.
"Salman is a bigger star than Vivek. To become a star everyone in the industry is targetting Salman," Arbaaz told reporters in Mumbai.
He said that Vivek might be in love with Rai, a former Miss World, who was earlier close to Salman.
