After keeping their relationship under wraps for a long time, Arjun Kapoor has finally made his relationship official with Malaika Arora. Arjun walked hand-in-hand with the actress at India's Most Wanted screening and also posed with her.
Arjun and Malaika posing together wasn't a surprise as they have been often snapped together in the past, adding fuel to rumours of them dating. And now, in a recent interview with a leading magazine, Arjun has accepted that he is dating Malaika. He also said that he felt comfortable making it official with Malaika at India's Most Wanted screening as the media treated them with dignity and respect.
"We've come out because we feel the media has given us dignity. There's a certain understanding the media has. They've been respectful, kind, honest and decent about it. That is why I felt comfortable. When purposely people irk you by saying, writing or asking things. There hasn't been any of that. Where the paparazzi are concerned, we give them photos when walking in and out of a place. It is normal. We talk to them."
He added, "There is a certain amount of ease. I told them don't sit under the house just because it looks like we're hiding when we're not. Let it be natural. Let it be normal. I don't want my neighbours being disturbed, I don't want her neighbours being disturbed. We're not doing anything wrong. I don't want that story being conveyed that we're still hiding when we're not. They understood that."
Malaika Arora was married to Arbaaz Khan for 18 years before divorcing the actor in 2017. The two have a 16-year-old son together, Arhaan Khan.
After breaking off with Arbaaz, Malaika started dating Arjun Kapoor. From parties to evening outings to quiet dinners, both Arjun and Malika have often been snapped together. They also took off to Maldives to spend some quality time together.
On the work front, Arjun Kapoor's India's Most Wanted has just released and he is currently busy with Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Panipat.
