For some years now, even when Malaika Arora was a Khan (married to Salman ’s brother Arbaaz) she was said to be very close to Arjun Kapoor.
After years of speculation on the nature of their relationship, it seems the couple is all set to go public. The last few weeks have seen them appear together in public and on national television on more than one occasion. Their ‘together’ appearance on a musical reality show where Arjun walked on stage hand-in-hand with Malaika and shook a leg with her was no spontaneous gesture.
According to sources close to the development the couple plans to be more open about their relationship. “After Malaika’s divorce, the matter became less complicated. The couple no longer had to think of what the world would think. Additionally, Arbaaz has found a new love (he is dating Italian Giorgia Andriani, a foreigner) and is likely to marry her soon. While Arjun and Malaika are not thinking marriage — not yet anyway - they are most certainly comfortable in public together,” says a source.
A few weeks ago, Arjun joined Malaika in Milan for her 40th birthday. They then were spotted at the Milan airport hand in hand. After which they were seen at some Diwali parties. Reports circulating in the media suggest that they are planning to tie the knot in 2019 and these public appearances might just be a way to slowly become more and more open as a couple.
