'My relationship with Salman is strained now'

One relationship in B-town which not only became the talk of the town instantly but also shocked everyone is Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor's. Soon after divorce with Arbaaz Khan, Malaika made sure to not stay single and went on to fall for Arjun Kapoor, who is way more younger than her. On the other hand, Arjun is considered as one of the handsome young lads in B-town whom people thought he would date younger and unmarried girls like Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra.

But, the news of dating Malaika came out of nowhere, leaving his fans pondered. Arjun's father and producer, Boney Kapoor recently spoke about his son in one of the interviews. When interviewer asked Boney on why he did not launch his son Arjun as an actor, Boney said that "Arjun always wanted to become a film director and that is why I had no plan to launch him as an actor. But one day, I got a call from Salman saying Arjun should try his hand in acting because he has the potential to become one. So, Salman took Arjun as his responsibility and groomed him".

But since Arjun Kapoor is now dating Malakia, ex-wife of Salman's brother, Arbaaz, "Unfortunately, my relationship with Salman is strained now," said Boney. However, he added that "initially Salman encouraged Arjun to get into acting. So, I owe this to Salman". Later, Boney was also asked on who his favourite child is among the four to which he answered, "As a father, all my children are my favourites, but Khushi is the apple of my eyes. She is after all the youngest, isn't it? ". Khushi is presently abroad for her higher studies.
