All this while, Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoorwere being spotted together at dinner dates, parties and what not. But the duo never went on-record to confirm that the couple is dating. Arjun did mention that he was dating someone when he appeared on Koffee With Karan 6 with Janhvi Kapoor but did not reveal the name. The tease was enough to drive gossip mongers crazy. However, the two stars still kept it under the wraps. While the duo was still to make any confirmation about their relationship status, Karan Johar went ahead and declared it on national television that the two are indeed dating.
In the recent episode of Koffee With Karan 6 featuring cricketers KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya, the host began discussing about Rahul’s celebrity crushes. The cricketer was asked about his biggest crush and he revealed that he had a thing for Malaika. However, it faded away. The filmmaker quizzed him about why he no longer has a crush on Malaika and asked him if it was because she was now dating Arjun. The talk show host accidentally confirmed that the duo is in a relationship.
