A troll decided to take on actor Arjun Kapoor and shame him for dating Malaika Arora. However, the Ishaqzaade actor had the perfect reply. Just a day after Arjun officially revealed that he is dating Malaika, a troll tweeted to him shaming the actor for dating a woman elder to him. The troll further claimed that Arjun had hated his dad Boney Kapoor, in the past, for marrying Sridevi who was younger to him.

Arjun tweeted a calm yet solid response. “I don’t hate anyone Kusum. We kept a dignified distance, If I did I wouldn’t have been there for my dad Janhvi & Khushi at a sensitive time... it’s easy to type & judge, think a little. Your @Varun_dvn s fan so I feel I should tell u don’t spread negativity with his face on ur DP,” he tweeted to the troll, who goes by the name Kusumbhutani. 

The user responded by deleting the controversial tweet and sending out an apology to both Arjun and Malaika. “I apologise if I have hurt anyone’s sentiments. I meant to do no harm. Extremely sorry to all @arjunk26 Fans.... Please Forgive me . It was just my opinion. Have nothing against @arjunk26 Sir or #MalaikaArora Ma’am. . SORRY SIR @arjunk26,” the user wrote. Arjun, was gracious in accepting the apology and wrote back, “It’s ok kusum... spread love... the street dancer is watching you.”

A day before Arjun’s latest outing — India’s Most Wanted — hit theatres, the makers held a special screening in Mumbai where Arjun and Malaika posed as a couple and talked about their relationship. Arjun had earlier said in an interview, “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.”
