Arjun Kapoor has had quite a history with the ladies of Khan-daan and we must acknowledge that it's highly controversial. Arjun was allegedly dating Salman Khan's sister Arpita Khan, who is now married to Aayush Sharma, before he entered Bollywood. During his initial days in the industry, Salman Khan was helping him train at the gym before his debut movie. Even though Arpita and Arjun had broken up, honestly, the credit of Arjun's transformation was completely given to Salman. The actor considered Bhai his who he treated as an older brother and father-figure.
After a while rumours of Arbaaz Khan's separation with wife Malaika Arora Khan started making headlines and after multiple attempts of the couple trying to make it work, they separated. Another rumour about Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora Khan's close friendship started hitting the news and some suggested that Arjun is one of the reasons for Malaika and Arbaaz's separation, even though no official statement came from the alleged couple.
According to Spotboye reports, Arjun's father Boney Kapoor had warned Arjun about the consequences. Boney Kapoor had asked his son to maintain his distance from Malaika. He was worried that Arjun's career might be in danger in Bollywood if he gets on Salman's wrong side.
For obvious reason, the circumstances have caused a rift in Arjun's friendship with Salman as the latter believes that Arjun is the reason behind Malaika's divorce with Arbaaz.
Reportedly, Arjun had been avoiding Salman at events and maintaining a distance from him. Although, the latest report suggests that Arjun is trying really hard to make peace with him. Arjun has constantly been in touch with Salman's sisters, Arpita Khan Sharma and Alvira Agnihotri, ever since he was convicted in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case to find out about Salman's welfare.
An insider said, "Salman has been informed about Arjun's concern, but it's not known yet if the former will reciprocate the gesture. Salman Khan isn't telling anybody not to work with Arjun Kapoor. He doesn't need to. But a lot of filmmakers are avoiding Arjun Kapoor because they don't want to offend Salman Khan."
Earlier when Boney Kapoor was struggling with financial problems, Salman had offered to work in his film, No Entry, without charging a single penny.
Reportedly, after hearing the rumours about a relationship brewing between Arjun and Malaika, Salman confronted Arjun and the latter denied it but now the rumours are catching fire again.
Let's wait and watch if Bhai will be the bigger person here and forgive Arjun for his alleged transgressions.
Arjun is currently shooting for Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Namastey England.
