Arjun Kapoor opened up about the criticism directed towards him and his girlfriend Malaika Arora for their 12-year age difference. He said that as long as people notice his work, everything else is ‘just a lot of noise’.

While Arjun is 36, Malaika is 48. He called it a ‘silly thought process’ to ‘contextualise a relationship’ on the basis of age.

Speaking to Masala.com, Arjun said, “Firstly, I think that the media is the one who goes through the comments from people. We don’t even look at 90% 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 cannot believe that narrative.”


“What I do in my personal life is my prerogative. As long as my work is being recognised, the rest is all just a lot of noise. Plus, you can’t be so bothered about whose age is what, so we should just live, let live and move on. I think it’s a silly thought process to look at age and contextualise a relationship,” he added.

Arjun and Malaika have been in a relationship for a few years now. To wish fans on New Year, he shared an unseen picture with her from a beach vacation. “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 in his caption.
