Media’s spotlight has suddenly shifted to actor Arjun Kapoor after a year that saw several high profile weddings involving Bollywood stars. Among those who tied knots in 2018 also included Arjun’s cousin Sonam Kapoor. With Arjun’s reported romance with Malaika Arora out in the open, the actor has become quite a favourite among Mumbai’s paparazzi.
Arjun has lately been spotted in the company of Malaika on a regular basis. Malaika has chosen to avoid any questions on her reported affair with Arjun. When asked, she had recently told a newspaper that she did not wish to comment on her personal life.
Arjun, for his part, has reportedly told Karan Johar on his chat show that he was ready for marriage. He reportedly said, “Yes, now I am. Earlier, I wasn’t.” This was after he candidly admitted on his relationship status. He said, “No, I’m not single.”
He also told Karana Johar that he had informed his family about his romance. When Karan asked him when he planned to inform his family about his current girlfriend (read Malaika), he looked at his half-sister Janhvi Kapoor and said, “Clearly, it has just happened.”
What this meant was that Arjun had confided in Janhvi about Malaika. Janhvi cheekily replied, “Yeah, it has been introduced on this show.”
Arjun was right since the Kapoor clan was spotted on Friday night partying with Malaika and Karan Johar in Juhu. Karan is currently judging the reality TV show India’s Got Talent with Malaika. On Friday night, Arjun was joined by uncle Sanjay Kapoor, aunt Maheep Kapoor and Malaika.
Anticipating media’s presence outside, Arjun decided to cover his face with handkerchief while leaving the building. Arjun had his hands firmly placed on his handkerchief to ensure it didn’t come off.
No amount of persuasion from reporters would make Arjun reveal his face. Some media reports said that this was not to avoid media in presence of Malaika, but to keep his new look for his next film secret.
