Love is all about being together and it doesn’t need any validation from law or society. If two people are in love and are happy with the way things are, they don’t need a stamp to be together. And that’s what Arjun Kapoor and his girlfriend Malaika Arora believe right now. The two have been dating for some time and despite so many rumors of them having married, they two are committed yet very much unmarried. While their fans couldn’t be happier to see this Bollywood couple enjoying the company of each other, a section of netizens have a problem with the fact that Arjun is 11 years younger than Malaika.
In an old interview, Malaika had 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 had said that it didn’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***.”
