Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor sort of made it official that he is dating Malaika Arora. The two were seen back to back at the screenings of Kapoor's recently released movie India's Most Wanted. Eyebrows were raised when the duo also held hands while posing in front of the shutterbugs. The actor also spoke about the same for the first time in an interview with Filmfare. The 33-year-old confessed that the two were comfortable "coming out before the media" as they were given "dignity." In the interview, Arjun was quoted, "We've come out because we feel the media has given us dignity. There's a certain understanding the media has... they've been respectful, kind, honest and decent about it. That is why I felt comfortable."

The two have never spoken directly about each other and therefore, Arjun sort of making it official is a big thing.

He further added, "You recoil when there's a certain 'gandhagi' that comes with the territory. When purposely people irk you by saying, writing or asking things... there hasn't been any of that. Where the paps are concerned, we give them photos when walking in and out of a place. It is normal. We talk to them. There's a certain ease."
The two have often come out in the past together and have been clicked by the shutterbugs.
Further talking about his equation with the paparazzi, Arjun said, "I told them don't sit under the house just because it looks like we're hiding, when we're not. Let it be natural. Let it be normal. I don't want my neighbours being disturbed, I don't want her neighbours being disturbed. We're not doing anything wrong. I don't want that story being conveyed that we're still hiding, when we're not. They understood that."
Arjun's recent release was Rajkumar Gupta's India's Most Wanted which didn't perform well at the box office.
