Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora are one of the most loved celeb jodis of B-town. The duo has often been spotted spending time together and their respected social media handles are filled with their drool-worthy pictures. Even after a huge age gap, Malaika and Arjun are the most sought-after celeb couple.
For the unversed, Malaika Arora was earlier married to actor, Arbaaz Khan. After 18 years of togetherness, in 2016, Malaika announced her separation from him and the couple was granted divorce in 2017. Malaika and Arbaaz have a son, Arhaan, who is currently pursuing his higher studies in abroad.
In the recent episode of Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan, Arjun Kapoor talked about his relationship with Malaika Arora at length. When Karan quipped Arjun on taking baby steps in his relationship, the actor revealed being considerate about people around him. In his words:
“I think somewhere, I have lived the life being on the other end of the spectrum. I grew up in a disjointed or dysfunctional situation where things were not the easiest being a son, having to see what was going on around and having an understanding of it, but still having to respect it and accept it. So somewhere there was an understanding in my head about how I should try and ease everybody into it, including the first people around us. I can't just jump on her."
In the same conversation, Arjun also revealed that he wanted the relationship to grow with the understanding that Malaika has a child. Talking about how he let everybody understand and accept their relationship, Arjun retorted:
“It is my choice to be with her but I cannot expect everybody to understand it and accept it easily. It has to be allowed to grow. I have to give regard to the relationship and the people around and ease everybody into it. It's not that we didn't talk about it as a couple, but there are baby steps. There is a basic understanding you need to have, that she has had a life, she has a child, I am somebody who is coming from a past that is aware of that."
After keeping their relationship under wraps for a long time, it was on Arjun’s 34th birthday, when Malaika had made their relationship official by sharing their first picture together. She had captioned it as:
“Happy birthday my crazy, insanely funny and amazing @arjunkapoor love and happiness always".
