There was a time when Arjun Kapoor’s closeness with Malaika Arora hadn’t gone down too well with his father Boney Kapoor
Even before Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan’s marriage hit rock bottom, some rumours of Arjun Kapoor playing a part in their relationship was in the air.
Many reports claimed that Arjun’s supposed affair with Malaika was the reason for the divorce.
According to a report in The Times of India, the Khan family was certainly unhappy with their friendship. The media report also mentioned that Arjun’s father, filmmaker Boney Kapoor, was also not happy with his son’s relationship.
Boney had asked Arjun to maintain distance from Malaika as he thought it might affect his Bollywood career. The main reason presumably was that the junior actor cannot afford to take on Salman Khan and rest of his ‘Khandan’.
Later, Arbaaz and Malaika issued a joint statement in March 2016 saying that they had a mutual separation.
