Don't think they make men like that anymore, says Malaika Arora about Arjun Kapoortext_fields
Mumbai: Bollywood actress Malaika Arora recently spoke up about her relationship with her boyfriend Arjun Kapoor. The duo was ruthlessly trolled by netizens in the early days of their relationship for the 12-year age gap.
Speaking about Arjun being younger than her, she said it has never been an issue for them because he is wise for his age. The 49-year-old said, "Our world is so obsessed with tags… There is an age difference, but it has never been an issue between us. I think he is insanely wise for his age, and that he has a very deep and strong soul. He is someone who’s very liberated and extremely caring. I don’t think they make men like that anymore."
She does not know when, but the couple is ready for marriage. Malaika added that she would love to set up a home with Arjun and take the relationship to the next level.
She added that Arjun is "her person" and she feels lucky to have "found true love". "I might have had wrong notions about love all my life, but when I met him, I connected with him and just fell in love. I now know what love is about…to love someone so purely is truly fascinating."
Even after her first marriage not working, Malaika said she still believes in the institution of marriage and is ready to take the plunge. "People think that I might be cynical about getting married again, but that’s far from true. I believe in the institution, I believe in love and companionship…all of it. I can’t answer when I will get married again, because I believe in leaving some aspects of one’s life as a surprise and not planning too much. Planning things constantly sucks the joy out of life."
Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor made their relationship official in 2019. She was earlier married to Arbaaz Khan and got divorced in 2017.
Last month, she said that she is enjoying the "pre-honeymoon phase" of her relationship with Arjun. "Marriage is something which is discussed between two people. If we have to take that plunge, we will think about it and we will decide and we will talk about it. In this moment, we are just loving life. We are enjoying our pre-honeymoon phase."
