Slowly and steadily, after taking their own sweet time, Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora are finally making it to the list of the ‘IT’ couples from the Tinseltown. After a lot of speculations making the rounds around their name being called together, Malaika and Arjun finally made it official by posing hand-in-hand for the first time at the screening of his film, India's Most Wanted. It was the first time when they had come in open and were seen getting comfortable being clicked together as a couple.
Soon after that, there was a series of interviews and statements made by them. And then came June 26, 2019, which was Arjun’s birthday. This was the day when he had officially made a debut on Malaika’s Instagram handle as she had wished him with lovely words.

As many of you might know, Arjun and Malaika were currently in Melbourne for the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IIFM). Yesterday, on August 12, 2019, the duo was clicked at the airport as they were back in town. When they were being papped at the airport, the two were mobbed by fans for pictures. And that was the time, when the protective boyfriend, Arjun acted as a shield for his ladylove. Don’t believe us? Here, take a look at the video:
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Malaika had talked about her 12-year age gap with Arjun for the first time. The Chaiyya Chaiyya star was quoted as saying, “The age difference doesn’t really pop up when you are in a relationship. It is about two minds and hearts connecting. 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***. " (Checkout: Chhavi Mittal's Inspiring Post-Pregnancy Weight Loss Journey, Reveals The 2 Things She Had To Avoid)
In the same chat, she had also revealed how her son, Arhaan Khan had reacted to her relationship with Arjun. Malaika was quoted as saying, “I believe the best way to approach any situation is with honesty. It’s important to tell your near and dear ones what’s happening in your life and then give them time and space to understand and process things. We have had that conversation and I am so glad that everyone is in a much happier and more honest space today."
On the other hand, Arjun Kapoor too, had spoken about their age-gap with the Bombay Times. He had said that it doesn’t matter to him at all, “I wouldn’t even want to speak about this and give it importance. It doesn’t matter to me, so I don’t want to justify anything.” Arjun had further added, “I respect the fact that the media has been so respectful about our relationship. We are not hiding anything either. I am in a good personal and professional space. I hope it continues this way. I don't want to go into the details right now.”
Further he had also revealed his marriage plans with Malaika and had shared, “There has to be dignity in the way you conduct yourself in a relationship, and I want to maintain that. I would like to talk about it as time unfolds rather than jumping the gun. We have opened the doors to the world to know that we are together. When the time is right, I will go into details and speak about it.” (Do Read: Ranbir Kapoor Has Asked Alia Bhatt's Hand For Marriage From Mahesh Bhatt For Their 2020 Wedding?)
