Malaika Arora wrote a statement on Friday on how it’s okay to fall in love in your 40s. The tweet comes just days after her boyfriend Arjun Kapoor uploaded a photo with her, effectively putting an end to rumours of their breakup.
The note shared by Malaika on her Instagram Stories read, “No but seriously. Normalize finding love in your ‘40s. Normalize discovering and chasing new dreams in your 30’s. Normalize finding yourself and your purpose in your 50’s. Life doesn’t end at 25. Let’s stop acting like it does (sic).”
On Friday, Malaika’s boyfriend Arjun published the note on his Instagram Stories. After rumours of their breakup began to circulate, Arjun shared a photo of himself with Malaika on Instagram.
Arjun (36) and Malaika (48) are often trolled for their age difference on social media. Recently in an interview, Arjun talked about it and 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.
