Malaika Arora Has a Message for People who Troll Her for Dating Much Younger Arjun Kapoor
When asked whether the 11-year age gap makes their relationship different, Malaika Arora said that it doesn't bother her and Arjun Kapoor, but there is no dearth of naysayers in society.
Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor have finally gone public with their relationship after keeping it under wraps for a long time. While their fans couldn't be happier to see this Bollywood couple enjoying the company of each other, there is no dearth of naysayers who have a problem with the fact that Arjun is 11 years younger than Malaika.
The Munni Badnam star, in a recent interview, said that when her marriage with Arbaaz Khan ended, she wasn't sure if she 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," Malaika told HT Brunch.
When asked whether the age gap between the two makes their relationship different, Malaika said that it doesn't bother her and Arjun, but the society is a different matter altogether. "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'. For people who think like this, I have just one line: Take a flying f***."
The 45-year-old diva has a teenage son Arhaan with ex-husband Arbaaz. She says that she has had a conversation with him as well as her near and dear ones about her relationship with Arjun, and that everyone is in a much happier and more honest space today.
The couple is in New York currently, on a vacation to celebrate Arjun's 34th birthday. They have been sharing photos of mushy moments with each other on Instagram.
