Mumbai: Arjun Kapoor and Malaika have been linked up for two years. They have been spotted at parties and dinners together but never spoken about their relationship.

When Arjun was asked about how the two felt comfortable about coming out and speaking on their equation, Arjun said to Filmfare, “We’ve come out because we feel the media has given us dignity. There’s a certain understanding the media has, they’ve been respectful, kind, honest and decent about it. That is why I feel comfortable.”

The actor said that he appreciated that the media respected their personal values and didn’t write or ask anything about their relationship.

He added, “Where the paps are concerned, we give them photos when walking in and out of a place. It is normal. There’s certain ease. I told them don’t sit under the house just because it looks like we’re hiding, when we’re not. Let it be natural. Let it be normal. I don’t want my neighbours being disturbed, I don’t want her neighbours being disturbed. We’re not doing anything wrong. I don’t want that story being conveyed that we’re still hiding, when we’re not. They understood that,” he added.”

When Arjun was asked about his wedding plans, he said “I still have time. If I've not hidden my relationship, why will I hide my marriage? I understand why there are speculations. Because in my own house people would ask ‘Tu shaadi kab kar raha hai?’ (When are you getting married?) It’s a very organic Indian question. If you’re with someone for even three days, the marriage question pops up. Thirty-three for most people in India is a great age to get married, but not for me. I still have time,” Arjun concluded.

Arjun recently released his film, India’s Most Wanted where he received good reviews by celebs and audience. His upcoming movies are Panipat and Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
