Arjun Kapoor might be one of the hottest guys in town now, but there was a time when he was far from what he looks like now. Forget about dating; he would be so nervous talking to a girl. Well, that was when Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan was dating him. And beware, it wasn’t just another relationship; both were seriously involved. But something went horribly wrong and the actor was dumped, which he later confessed in an interview after becoming a star.
The world knows that Arjun is currently in a relationship with Malaika Arora, and the two may soon be married. But did you know that the Tevar actor was almost broken after Arpita dumped him, and that it was none other than Salman who helped him get out of that phase?
Conversely, Arjun Kapoor had started dating Arpita Khan when he was only 18 and weighed nearly 140 kg. The relationship lasted almost two years. In a return interview with the Bombay Times, Arjun had revealed details of his relationship with Khan and how Salman Khan was biased towards him and sided with him.
Arjun Kapoor said: “My first and only serious relationship to date 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 filming of Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya that our relationship began. I was afraid of Salman Bhai and I went to tell him and the whole family what I wanted them to know first. They were very nice about it. He was surprised, but he respects people and relationships. In fact, he was biased in this relationship where he would always take my side.
Arjun almost went into depression after Arpita Khan broke up with him. Speaking about this, he said: “I was 140 kg, I was attending Nikhil Advani at Salaam-E-Ishq and I had a girlfriend, I would party and I felt my life was going in the right direction and I felt sorted and thought I would direct my movie. at 22, until she broke up with me and suddenly I didn’t know what my future had in store for me. Even after I broke up, I dated Salman Bhai. It was my friend, my father figure, my older brother, everything at that time. He was an older brother that I never had and he made me realize how important it is to have an older brother.
We love the way Salman Khan supported Arjun Kapoor despite his love for Arpita Khan. What do you think?
