After months of speculations actor Arjun Kapoor has finally confirmed that he is in a relationship with Malaika Arora. The couple made their relationship official as they walked hand in hand as they attended the screenings of his film India’s ‘Most Wanted’. 

Talking to Filmfare in an interview, Arjun has now said that he doesn’t want people to believe that they are still hiding.

“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 things... there hasn’t been any of that,” he said.

However, he said he is not getting married. 

“I’m not getting married. I understand why there are speculations. Because in my own house people would ask ‘tu shaadi kab kar raha hai’? It’s a very organic Indian question. If you’re with someone for even three days, the marriage question pops up. ‘Shaadi karlo, tumhari umar ho gayi hai, abhi kitna sochoge?’ 33, for most people in India, is great age to get married, but not for me. I still have time. If I’ve not hidden my relationship, why will I hide my marriage yaar?,” he added.

Arjun Kapoor’s movie ‘India’s Most Wanted’ failed to do well at the box-office. But the actor has received appreciation for his performance in the movie. Talking about choosing the film Arjun has said the film pulled him out of his comfort zone and claims it is a “desi film” about middle class people.

“It certainly took me out of my comfort zone. Maybe more than Finding Fanny (2014) and Aurangzeb (2013). So yeah, I’ve tried it in the past without being too scared. But yes at this stage, I could’ve said that I want an extra action scene or I want the hero to have a song. It’s actually a film that is devoid of heroes in the Bollywood sense. It is actually the opposite. The film’s journey makes my character come across a certain way which was challenging but when I read it I realised there’s no other way to tell this story,” the actor said.

Arjun Kapoor is currently busy shooting for his next movie ‘Panipat’.
