Flashback Friday: When Arjun Kapoor opened up about dating Arpita Khan and his equation with Salman Khan | Hindi Movie News

Arjun Kapoor is one of the leading actors in Bollywood who had started his career behind the camera. His first job in the industry was as an assistant director for Nikhil Advani’s ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ in 2003. While he has several times talked about his professional life publicly, when it comes to his personal affairs, Arjun likes to keep it away from the spotlight, until one time when he revealed his experience of dating Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan and the reason behind their breakup.

During an interview with Bombay Times, Arjun had shared, “My first and only serious relationship so far was with Arpita Khan. We started seeing each other when I was 18 and it lasted for two years. I was also already attached to Salman bhai, but it was during the shooting of ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya’ that our relationship started. 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.”

Explaining how Arpita broke up with him for better, Arjun further added, “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. I 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 (Salman Khan). 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.”

However, this is all past. Arjun Kapoor is currently happily dating his ladylove Malaika Arora while Arpita Khan recently celebrated her 6th wedding anniversary with actor Aayush Sharma.
