Love that doesn’t see any age gap, any religion hindrance or gender bias, is how we term as one true love! In the same regards, Bollywood stars often fall prey to harsh criticisms are they are always sought after and are under the public scanner. We still live in a society where if a man dates a woman twice his age, we all are completely cool about it, but when a woman dates a guy twice as much younger to her, she becomes a subject to harsh criticisms. But Bollywood celebs such as Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor are exemplars of how to shun baseless thoughts and not care about trolls pertaining to their age gap.

Arjun Kapoor and his muse, Malaika Arora are the latest ‘IT’ couple of the Tinseltown. From openly expressing their love towards one another and giving it back to all haters, these two are pure goals. While there’s was mostly an open secret relationship, it was on Arjun Kapoor’s 34th birthday on June 26 when the former made his debut on his girlfriend, Malaika’s Instagram handle. While an array of Kapoors’ had wished their wittiest member in the most amazing way, all that we were eyeing on was Malaika’s wish for her beau. And thus, it popped up on our Instagram feeds where the couple had looked so much in love! Sharing the picture, Malaika had written, “Happy birthday my crazy, insanely funny and amazing @arjunkapoor. love and happiness always."
In a latest interview with the Hindustan Times, Malaika Arora opened her heart out about her thoughts governing her 12-year age gap with boyfriend, Arjun Kapoor. Talking about it and further giving a message to all haters, Bollywood’s Chaiyya Chaiyya girl shared, “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***. "
Malaika Arora also revealed her son, Arhaan Khan’s reaction when she broke the news about her dating Arjun Kapoor. She shared, “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."

Malaika Arora also shared how it felt to fall in love all over again, “It feels amazing! When my marriage ended, I wasn’t sure if I 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!" Reports were rife that Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora are all set to tie the knot in April. But that did not happen. When asked about her marriage plans, Malaika shared, “That, I am not going to answer. It’s really personal."
Malaika Arora is not the only one to talk about bridging the age gap in a relationship. In an interview with the Bombay Times, Arjun Kapoor too had spoken about him being 12 years younger than Malaika. He had stated, “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.”
Arjun Kapoor had then, spoken about making his relationship official with Malaika Arora. The Panipat actor 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.” And looks like the time did come!
