Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora are not keeping their relationship under wraps. They are going around and soon will tie a nuptial knot. If a newspaper report is anything to go by, Arjun and Malaika are planning to exchange marital vows in April.
A source close to the couple revealed that they will get hitched in a traditional Christian ceremony. “Malaika and Arjun have decided to get married in April, in a church wedding,” the insider said.
Recently, Karan Johar asked Kareena Kapoor Khan on Koffee With Karan if she would be one of Malaika’s bridesmaids. Kareena chose to neither confirm nor deny. When Arjun came on Karan’s show, he revealed that he was open to the idea of marriage. “Yes, now I am. Earlier, I wasn’t,” he confessed.
Malaika was previously married to Arbaaz Khan. The former couple, who have a 16-year-old son Arhaan together, have remained on cordial terms even after their divorce. On Kareena’s radio show What Women Want, which airs on Ishq 104.8 FM, Malaika opened up about how her relationship with Arbaaz ended. She revealed that when she initially told her friends and family members about her decision, they asked her to give it a second thought.
“I think sab ki pehli yehi raai hai ki mat karna. Koi aapko nahi kahega ki, ‘Haan, haan, please jayiye, kariye.’ That’s the first thing, ki aap soch samajh ke yeh decision lena. I went through the same thing,” she said.
Malaika revealed that her family asked her to think things through even on the night before her divorce hearing. However, once her friends and family realised that she was certain that she wanted to end her marriage with Arbaaz, they stood by her.
“Everybody said, ‘If this is the decision that you’re making, then we’re really proud of you and in our eyes, you are a strong woman.’ So for me, that kind of gave me that extra strength that I needed,” the actress said.
