It is not the first love that teaches us life lessons, it is the second love that shows us all the reason why we can still be loved. Second love demands nothing but to be with you in all your happy moments. With patience, it understands your mood swings, it gives you all the reason to take the leap of faith and fall in love again. And an exactly similar thing happened with Bollywood diva, Malaika Arora when she met Arjun Kapoor.

Malaika Arora had left everyone shocked when she had announced her divorce with ex-husband, Arbaaz Khan after 18-years of living together. While the world had their own version of her divorce, the gorgeous starlet had simply stated that it was better to live alone on your own terms and conditions than living in an unhappy marriage. And as we say love attracts those who have the courage to fall again, and Malaika felt the butterflies again when she fell in love with the Bollywood heartthrob, Arjun Kapoor.
In an interview with the IANS, Malaika talked about falling in love again, and how in India second chances for a woman is a big no-no. The diva shared, "It is a taboo is because there are a lot of situations and issues that need to be tackled in our country, though I think the issue needs to be looked at with an open mind. A little more sensitivity (is needed), as opposed to being harsh and callous and negative towards things. I think it is important to be inclusive. When I talk of second chances, I'm thinking of making the most of second chances. I think everybody should be given a second chance."

She also talked about being in the public eye and her being under the scanner, "It is part of being in the public eye, of being in this business. I think the sooner you make peace with it, the better things work out for you. Also, I feel we are all quite comfortable with it right now."
Malaika opened up about the trollers and said, "No one should give importance to trolls, because if you pay heed to them you just fuel trolling. At the end of the day, we have something called the media to project everything that needs to be out there. I do not give trolling or negativity any importance."
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Malaika had talked about giving love another chance after divorce, and had shared, "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!"
Talking about the age difference, Malaika had stated, "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." She had further added, "An older man romancing a younger girl is hailed everywhere, but when the woman is older, she’s called ‘desperate’ and a buddhi (old). For people who think like this, I have just one line: Take a flying f***."
In another interview with Filmfare, Arjun had spilled the beans about his relationship with Malaika. He had shared, "I don't have anything to discuss. I have nothing to hide. What the world is seeing, they are seeing. However, I have no desire to justify my personal life beyond a point. It is important to have good people around me and I feel fortunate that I have such individuals in my life."
Arjun had also opened up about his bond with Malaika, and had shared, "We’ve come out because we feel the media has given us dignity. There’s a certain understanding the media has… they’ve been respectful, kind, honest and decent about it. That is why I felt comfortable. You recoil when there’s a certain “gandhagi” that comes with the territory. When purposely people irk you by saying, writing or asking a thing, there hasn’t been any of that. Where the paps are concerned, we give them photos when walking in and out of a place. It is normal."
