Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor are open about their relationship. But there was a time when they wanted to keep their affair a secret
Since New Year's Eve, Malaika and Arjun were seen flaunting their love for each other on the beach, with the diva’s lips against Arjun's cheek to stepping out for romantic dinner holding hands while the paparazzi lens is following them to many places.
The couple often faces heavy criticism mainly for their age gap, but it looks like Arjun and Malaika are ready to take their relationship to the next level. Arjun has even bonded well with Malaika's family and her 17-year-old son Arhaan.
But there was a time when Arjun and Malaika wanted to keep their affair a hush-hush and used to hide from prying eyes.
Their proximity to each other has been a significant matter of speculation ever since Malaika ended her 21-year-old marriage with the actor-producer Arbaaz Khan.
This has reportedly not only left Arbaaz, his family unhappy, but has also upset Salman Khan. Even Arjun's father Boney Kapoor is not quite pleased with it.
Last year, on the fourth day of Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai, Arjun and Malaika were seen sitting beside each other along with Janhvi Kapoor in the front row. The duo was there for designer Kunal Rawal's show.
According to reports, the constant media speculations, gossips and paparazzi have led the rumoured couple to put an end to their relationship.
Many reports claim that Salman, who was Arjun’s mentor and was very close to him, started ignoring the actor over his closeness with his former sister-in-law Malaika.
Sources also said Salman was reportedly telling filmmakers not to offer any work to Arjun. However, Boney, a close friend of Salman, had apparently advised his son to stay away from Malaika as it affected their friendship.
