Arjun Kapoor and Arpita Khan who is the adopted sister of Salman Khan may have gone their separate ways and are with other people now but they were once madly in love with each other. Their relationship lasted for two years but had a real impact on Arjun Kapoor.
Throwback to the 2014 interview of Arjun Kapoor in which he admitted that Arpita was his first and only serious relationship. He further revealed that he was scared to tell Salman Khan and the rest of her family about their relationship.
Arjun said about their relationship, "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", added Arjun.
Arjun Kapoor further revealed that it was Arpita who broke up with him. He said, "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 and 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. 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", said Arjun.
