New Delhi: After keeping their relationship under wraps for quite some time, Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora walked hand-in-hand at the special screening of ‘India’s Next Wanted’. The couple posed together for the shutterbugs for the very first time, thus confirming the rumours of them dating each other.
Earlier, the two lovebirds were often snapped together but they didn’t talk about their relationship. Now, Arjun has finally accepted that he is dating Malaika in his recent interaction with a leading magazine.
The ‘Namastey England’ actor said that he doesn’t want people to believe that they are still hiding. He added that the media gave them space and didn’t irk them with questions.
“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,” Arjun told Filmfare.
“Where the paps are concerned, we give them photos when walking in and out of a place. It is normal. We talk to them. There’s a certain ease. I told them don’t sit under the house just because it looks like we’re hiding, when we’re not. Let it be natural. Let it be normal. I don’t want my neighbours being disturbed, I don’t want her neighbours being disturbed. We’re not doing anything wrong. I don’t want that story being conveyed that we’re still hiding, when we’re not. They understood that,’’ Arjun further told the magazine.
Arjun and Malaika’s wedding rumours became the talk of the town and it was said they would get hitched this year. When asked about their wedding plans, the 33-year-old actor said that he is not getting married right now.
“I still have time. If I’ve not hidden my relationship, why will I hide my marriage?,” he added.
Arjun Kapoor’s ‘India’s Most Wanted’, which released on May 24, has collected Rs. 8.66 crore in its first weekend at the box office.
On the professional front, Arjun Kapoor has ‘Panipat’ and ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ in his kitty.
