Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora have been one of the most talked about couples in the town. The couple had been under the radar for a while but only confirmed their relationship back in 2019. As expected, eyebrows were raised and many slammed the power couple over the huge age gap between them, while Kapoor is 36, Arora is 48. The Ishaqzaade star is often trolled over their age gap. However, during a recent interview, when Arjun was quizzed about these trolls, he made the stand clear and emphasised that his personal life is his prerogative.
Speaking to Masala. com, the actor stated, “Firstly, I think that the media is the one who goes through the comments from people. We don’t even look at 90% of it so the trolling cannot be given so much importance, because it’s all fake. Those same people will be dying to take a selfie with me when they meet me, so you cannot believe that narrative.”
Arjun called it a ‘silly thought process’ to ‘contextualise a relationship’ on the parameters of age. All that he wants is his work to speak for him! “What I do in my personal life is my prerogative. As long as my work is being recognised, the rest is all just a lot of noise. Plus, you can’t be so bothered about whose age is what, so we should just live, let live and move on. I think it’s a silly thought process to look at age and contextualise a relationship,” he added.
Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora have been in a relationship for a few years now. To wish fans on New Year, he shared an unseen picture with her from a beach vacation. “As the dust settles on 2021 (clearly the virus refuses to so something must), we just wanna wish all of you a happy & very pouty 2022 ahead!!! (sic),” he wrote in his caption.
On the work front, Arjun will next be seen in Mohit Suri’s ‘Ek Villain Returns’ along with John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria in lead roles. Apart from this, he also has ‘Kuttey’ co-starring Naseeruddin Shah, Tabu, Konkona Sensharma, and Radhika Madan. The film is directed by Vishal Bhardwaj’s son Aasmaan Bhardwaj.
Last week, Kapoor tested positive for COVID-19 along with sister Anshula, It was the second time he was infected. In September 2020 both Arjun and Malaika had caught the virus.
