It was in August 2018 that Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora made their first public appearance together at a fashion show. And since then, a lot has changed for this couple. From vacationing together to social-media PDA to making their relationship official, a lot has happened in the last 10 months.
Malaika, who is on a vacation with Arjun Kapoor in New York, revealed the most attractive trait about her boyfriend. In an interview with Times of India, Malaika said, “It’s very difficult to find someone who understands you. Arjun understands me. He makes me smile and laugh and he knows me inside out. I guess that just makes everything work.”
While Malaika is in a happy space, the couple has been trolled for their age gap. It is no secret that Malaika is older to Arjun, and often becomes a target of trolls for being in a relationship with a younger guy.
However, the diva is unfazed by all the toxicity. “I don’t usually pay attention to trolls because if I do that, I will live a sad, pathetic and toxic life. A man dating a younger woman makes him a dude. But if a woman dates a younger man, people say, ‘What the hell is she thinking’. This kind of disparity has been there forever. It’s sad and I hope that this changes. A lot is changing, but it will take a while for us to get there,” added Malaika.
“I don’t listen to what people have to say about me. I just care for what my son, my family, my partner and my friends think. I was working, and taking care of Arhaan then, and I am doing that even now. The only difference is that, back then, I was married, and now I am not. What is the hoopla all about?,” asked Malaika.
On the work front, Arjun Kapoor is currently busy with Ashutosh Gowariker’s historical drama Panipat, which also stars Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon in pivotal roles.
