It was not less for Malaika Arora who was made fun of on social media for dating Arjun Kapoor whose 11 years younger than her. She had come out in the open confidently to talk about the age gap-related buzz. Talking to Bombay Times about being trolled for the age difference with Arjun, Malaika said she remembers Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas finding themselves in the same situation. The Bollywood celeb was all praise for the new couple for the way they silenced all the wagging tongues.
Malaika said,“It’s unfair to judge relationships. Can’t a woman find love in a man younger than her? If someone makes you happy and enriches your life, what’s the harm? I am 45 that doesn’t make me dead or someone who’s over the hill. I enjoy my life and feel happy about having such a special equation with a man younger than me. You have to forget the barriers and nurture relationships.”
Priyanka and Nick had got married in a traditional ceremony at Jodhpur in December. In one of the previous interviews with HT Brunch Malaika was asked if the age difference with Arjun makes her relationship different. She said,” The age difference doesn’t really pop up when you are in a relationship. It is about two minds and hearts connecting. Unfortunately, we live in a society that refuses to progress with time. An older man romancing a younger girl is hailed everywhere, but when the woman is older, she’s called ‘desperate’ and a ‘buddhi’. For people who think like this, I have just one line: Take a flying f***.
