Bollywood’s handsome hunk Arjun Kapoor is currently in a happy relationship with Malaika Arora. The duo has been dating each other for quite some time now. However, Malaika isn’t Arjun Kapoor’s first love. Before finding love in Malaika, Arjun was in a relationship with Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan.
Well, it happened more than a decade ago. Though Arjun is a very private person who doesn’t often talk about his personal life, but once he opened up about his affair with Arpita. He told a news portal, “My first and only serious relationship so far was with Arpita Khan. We started seeing each other when I was 18 and it lasted for two years. I was also already attached to Salman bhai, but it was during the shooting of ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya’ that our relationship started. I was scared of Salman bhai and went and told him and the entire family as I wanted them to know from me first. They were very kind about it. He was taken aback, but he respects people and relationships. In fact, he was partial in that relationship where he would always take my side.”
It was Arpita who decided to end their relationship. Talking about the same, Arjun told, “I was 140 kgs, was assisting Nikhil Advani in ‘Salaam-E-Ishq’ and had a girlfriend, would party and felt my life was headed in the right direction. I felt sorted and thought that I would direct my film by 22, till she broke up with me and suddenly I was confused about what my future held for me. Even after breaking up, I would hang out with him (Salman Khan). He was my friend, my father-figure, older brother, everything at that point. He was an older brother I never had and he made me realise how important it is to have an older brother.”
Well, both Arjun and Arpita have moved on for good. While Arjun is planning his future with Malaika, Arpita recently celebrated her 6th wedding anniversary with Aayush Sharma. Arpita and Aayush are parents of two beautiful kids.
