Arjun Kapoor confesses dating Salman’s sister Arpita
The ‘Ishaqzaade’ actor Arjun Kapoor reveals his love story with Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan. Lots might have been said and written about his love relationship with Alia Bhatt but he confessed that his "first and only serious relationship so far" was with Arpita Khan, Salman’s little sister. He said that he dated Arpita when he was very young and it lasted for only two years.
Arjun said that he was 18 then and was scared and nervous about
telling the star about the relationship, "I was scared of Salman bhai and
went and told him and the entire family as I wanted them to know from me first.
They were very kind about it. He was taken aback, but he respects people and
relationships. In fact, he was partial in that relationship where he would
always take my side."
Even after breaking up with Arpita, Arjun and Salman Khan were in good relationship, "I was 140 kgs, was assisting Nikhil Advani in Salaam-E-Ishq and had a girlfriend, would party and felt my life was headed in the right direction and felt sorted and thought that I would direct my film by 22, till she broke up with me and suddenly I was confused about what my future held for me. Even after breaking up, I would hang out with him. He was my friend, my father-figure, older brother, everything at that point. He was an older brother I never had and he made me realise how important it is to have an older brother."
It was Salman Khan who made him realise his Bollywood dream and boosts up his confidence to shed extra flab and take up acting.
Arjun Kapoor is looking forward to the release of ‘2 States’ with Alia Bhatt.
