Just last week, Bollywood star couple Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora made their relationship official...well at least on Instagram, (but that’s what counts right?). Arjun Kapoor whisked his lady love to New York for a romantic getaway for his birthday and the two have been sharing glimpses of their time together on social media. They often make appearance together in public but have always remained mum about their relationship, until now. Malika was previously married to Arbaaz Khan and after a rough divorce, found love in the Ki and Ka actor. Arjun Kapoor also happens to be 10 years younger than her.
When asked about her divorce and finding love in Arjun, Malaika said, “It feels amazing! When my marriage ended, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be in another relationship and was scared of being heartbroken. But I also wanted to be in love, nurture a relationship, and this new me gave me the confidence to put myself out there and take a chance. I am so glad I did!”
Often bearing the brunt of social media trolling for dating a man who is 10 years her junior, Malaika finally opened up on Arjun’s age and their relationship. She was asked about whether the age difference impacted her she said, “The age difference doesn’t really pop up when you are in a relationship. It is about two minds and hearts connecting. Unfortunately, we live in a society that refuses to progress with time. An older man romancing a younger girl is hailed everywhere, but when the woman is older, she’s called ‘desperate’ and a ‘buddhi’.”
It was on Arjun’s birthday that Malaika took to Instagram and share a picture of them.
“Happy bday my crazy,insanely funny n amazing @arjunkapoor ... love n happiness always,” she captioned the picture in which they can be seen holding hands. Arjun followed suit and posted a picture of Malaika hiding her face with a heart shaped YSL bag which he titled, “She has my heart.” It is nice to see that the couple has finally opened up about their relationship and it could be very soon that we hear wedding bells ringing for the two!
