Now that Arjun Kapoor has made his relationship with Malaika Arora official –well, almost, now that he’s not denying it—for people interested in knowing why the couple won’t marry this year as expected, here is the answer for someone very close to the Kapoor family. It's a question everyone has been asking and it's a question that is finally answered.
“Arjun and Malaika are both ready to take the plunge. It is Arjun who wants to put wedding plans on hold, and for a very good reason. He wants his sister Anshula to be married first. He can’t move out of the home they share together until she is well-settled in matrimony with whoever she marries,” says the source in the know.
But why can’t Arjun and Malaika marry and live together with Anshula until she finds someone to spend the rest of her life with?
This is where matters get complicated.
“It’s not that simple. Ever since Arjun and Anshula’s mother passed away the siblings have stood by each other rock-solid. Arjun has vowed to himself not to get married before his sister,” says the well-informed source.
This leaves the Arjun-Malaika wedding in a state of complete indecisiveness. And that’s just fine with the couple. Neither is in a hurry to run up the altar. And the fact that Arjun has put his sister’s life ahead of his is truly commendable. Arjun’s world revolves around Anshula. Even when he reached out to his father Boney Kapoor’s daughters from his second marriage he made sure his sister was okay with it.
