Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora's wedding has become the talk of the town ever since the duo has come clean about their relationship in public. It was rumoured that the lovebirds will tie the knot in April, however, that turned out to be untrue. Many of their Bollywood friends including Parineeti Chopra also spoke about their rumoured wedding, denying it happening in the near future. Now, the man in question, Arjun Kapoor has spoken up himself on the wedding rumours with Malaika Arora. He says that he doesn't have time right now to get married.
Speaking to PTI, Arjun Kapoor said, "I am not getting married. If I am getting married I will speak about it openly. There is no reason for me to hide it. It is not something I can hide from people. If I am not hiding anything now, why will I hide my marriage?"

"I am working now, I am not in the zone to get married. I don't care about what the world has to say. I think jumping the gun is silly," he added.
The 33-year-old actor says he is aware of the constant public scrutiny on his personal life but that does not bother him much.
"Even if I say something, it is not necessary that people will stop writing. Speculation is a part of the profession. I have signed up for this and it comes with the territory. My personal life is not personal, it is public.
"Media has been gracious and respectful, including paparazzi. There is a certain dignity and sanity being maintained and I would like to keep it that way."
Arjun says he has learnt to deal with the attention around his personal life.
"I am a public figure and I understand media has some mandates (to ask about my personal life). Some ask respectfully, while others ask to irritate you. You have to be prepared as an actor. There will be good and bad days," he adds.
He further says he fully respects the opinion people have about his personal life.
"What people say on social media, the trolls and all is their opinion and I respect that. I don't need to agree or care about it. Now, I am in a place that it doesn't bother me. Maybe five years ago, I would have been bothered. Today, I accept what is happening."
Arjun and Malaika, 45, initially kept their relationship under wraps, but are more open now. Malaika was married to actor-director-producer Arbaaz Khan but got divorced in 2017. Arjun is currently promoting India's Most Wanted. He will next be seen in Yash Raj Films' Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, directed by Dibakar Banerjee, and Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama, Panipat.
