Malaika Arora shared a note on Friday about normalizing falling in love in your 40s. The post comes a few days after her boyfriend, Arjun Kapoor, shared a picture with her, putting a full stop to their breakup rumours.
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). "
Malaika's boyfriend, Arjun, also shared the note on his Instagram Stories on Friday.
Earlier, Arjun posted a picture of himself with Malaika on Instagram, after rumours about their breakup started doing the rounds. Sharing a monochrome photo, Arjun wrote, "There is no place for shady rumours. Stay safe. Stay blessed. I wish well for people. Love y'all. "
Malaika commented on the picture and dropped a heart emoji in the comments section. Actor Tara Sutaria wrote, "YES! You guys." While Malaika's sister Amrita Arora commented, "You tell them Joon."
Arjun and Malaika have been in a relationship for a few years now. Last month, the couple shared several videos and photos from their romantic trip to the Maldives.
Arjun (36) and Malaika (48) are often trolled for their age difference on social media. Recently, in an interview with Masala.com 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 recognized, the rest is all just a lot of noise. Plus, you can’t be 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.
