The couple has been dating for the past several years. While Arjun Kapoor is 36, Malaika Arora is 48.
“We don’t even look at 90 percent of it so the trolling cannot be given so much importance, because it’s all fake. Those same people will be dying to take a selfie with me when they meet me, so you can not believe that narrative, Kapoor.
“What I do in my personal life is my prerogative. As long as my work is being recognized, the rest is all just a lot of noise.”
He said he went public with his relationship to avoid unnecessary speculation in the future.
On New Year's Day, the actor posted a photo with Arora. "As the dust settles on 2021 (clearly the virus refuses to so something must) We just wanna wish all of you a happy & very pouty 2022 ahead," he wrote. Arora posted the same photo with a mushy caption.
Last week, Kapoor tested positive for COVID-19 along with sister Anshula, It was the second time he was infected. In September 2020, he and Arora had caught the virus.
