Koffee With Karan 7: Arjun Kapoor reveals why he took time before making his relationship public with Malaika Arora, says 'she has had a life, she has a child'


Kapoor cousins Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Arjun Kapoor graced Karan Johar's Koffee With Karan 7 in last night's episode and it was one hell of an episode. From making fun of each other to being supportive of one another's relationships, Sonam and Arjun really shelled out sibling goals. In the episode, Arjun even spoke about his ladylove Malaika Arora and what took them so long to make their relationship public. 

Arjun was then asked by Karan why he took so long to reveal his relationship with Malaika to the public. The actor answered saying, "I think I've lived a life being on the other side of the spectrum. I grew up in a disjointed family, and it was not easy to see what was going on, and still had to accept everything. I can't just jump on her (Malaika). The first reaction could be 'What do you mean?' If you ease people in, they'll understand."

"I will always think about everyone first. It is my choice to be with her, but I cannot expect everyone to understand. It has to be allowed to grow. I cannot expect everyone to understand easily. Darja dena padta hai, and I had to ease everyone into it including the public eye. It's not that we didn't talk about it as a couple. But there are baby steps. There is a basic understanding that she has had a life, she has a child, and I'm coming from a past that is aware of that. The moral compass of the country you cannot dictate", Arjun explained.

When questioned about their future wedding, Arjun responded that it is not yet planned. "No, because it's been two years of Covid, I want to focus on my career. I want to see where I am going. I am a realistic person. I'm not hiding anything and neither am I coy. I want to be more stable, not just financially. If I am happy, only then I can make my partner happy, and a lot of happiness comes from my work," he said.
