Who did Salman Khan arm wrestle at IIFA?

IIFA 2016 saw a competitive side of Bhaijaan when he said that no one could beat him at arm wrestling. When Maniesh Paul tried to challenge this, Salman showed us who the real G.O.A.T. is


Paul started his crowd work with Neha Dhupia, dancing with her on the song Senorita before going on to Salman Khan. The audience loved them, and their performance won a lot of cheers from everyone.


Maniesh Paul started by greeting Bhai with a famous dialogue from his film, Dabangg, setting the tone for the rest of the conversation. He went down on his knees and proposed Bhai to an irresistible challenge. He chimed that he had heard Salman was unbeatable at arm wrestling, to which Bhai replied, “Correct.” 


But the real fun started when they put their words into action. The two were clearly in the mood for some banter and amusement as they took up a decent amount of time to joke around and eventually play a friendly arm wrestling game. 


The whole thing was funnier when Maniesh Paul discovered that Salman Khan is a lefty and eventually changed his hands for a fair fighting chance. Things were also dramatised and made more humorous by Paul’s running commentary. The audience loved the duo and applauded their shenanigans.  


Maniesh Paul ended the segment with Sonakshi Sinha and made her act out two lines, which the crowd loved. 


What do you think about this?

Would you ever challenge the unshakeable Bhaijaan to a match of arm wrestling?
