Arjun Kapoor Reveals How His Family Reacted When He Told Them About Girlfriend Malaika Arora
Arjun Kapoor shared his family has been supportive of his life decisions. He also revealed what enabled him and Malaika to not be afraid of making their relationship public.
There’s no denying that Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora’s relationship has been making waves after waves this year. From their Instagram posts dedicated to each other to vacationing in NYC, the paparazzi have a strict eye on the love birds and their everyday happenings. The star couple put all rumours surrounding their romance to rest on the occasion of Arjun’s birthday in June this year. While Malaika wrote, "Happy birthday my crazy, insanely funny and amazing Arjun. Love n happiness always", Arjun got the world talking when he posted the caption, “She has my heart… (literally)!” This public display of affection was enough to confirm their budding romance.
In an interview with a leading portal, Arjun revealed the reaction he got from the Kapoor clan when he told them about Malaika and his relationship. Stating his family has been supportive of his life decisions, the Ki & Ka actor said, “They are happy. That's the reason I have been able to come out. There is genuine happiness for me. I have been through hell. I have been through a roller-coaster... from the age of 10 till 33. My parents got separated when I was around 11 years old. Today I have some stability in my life and if someone gives me happiness, my family won't be against it. I am genuinely happy. That is why a Friday at the box office doesn't decide my life. Three years back, I had have been like, I am dying! What's gonna happen? But today, I am relaxed.”
Arjun also shared what enabled him and Malaika to not be afraid of making their relationship public. “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. You recoil when there's a certain ‘gandhagi’ (dirt) that comes with the territory. When purposely people irk you by saying, writing or asking things. There hasn't been any of that. Where the paps are concerned, we give them photos when walking in and out of a place. It is normal. We talk to them. There's a certain 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,” he concluded.
