Arjun Kapoor is making headlines and is even trending on social media for his befitting reply to a reporter who asked his opinions on pre-marital sex. The Ishaqzaade actor on Thursday attended the launch event of MTV's new show Nishedh Season 2 where he shared his views on a diverse range of topics like abortion, tuberculosis, Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD), and others. During the press conference, one journalist asked Arjun about his thoughts on pre-marital sex and having multiple partners before marriage.
While reciting Shah Rukh Khan's dialogue, the journalist asked Arjun, “Our country’s identity, our country’s strong culture — where one should not have s*x before marriage — why do you think before or after the wedding, there should be multiple partners or have open s*x because India’s identity is one man one woman. We live once, we die once, and we marry also only once.” ALSO READ: ‘Shah Rukh Khan Hindustan Ki Identity Nahi Hai’ Arjun Kapoor BLASTS Reporter Who Asked Him About Premarital Sex-See VIDEO
Shutting down the reporter, the 37-year-old actor asked the journalist who has created this identity and he took Shah Rukh’s name. Arjun then asked him, “Shah Rukh Khan is not India’s identity?” He further explained, “In a person’s life, there are many highs and lows. You meet lots of people, you explore a lot of relationships. When you decide to get married, it is a bigger deal than perhaps not being married. Being in a relationship is a bigger deal but not as big as marriage. There are processes to reach that stage. Many times you think it is true love but later you realise you want to focus on your career or we cannot live up to this relationship because there are a few things that are not working out. That's allowed, why is that not allowed? When you ask questions such as 'multiple partners', this is not a video game. So change your question, the answer is logical.”
Talking about Arjun’s personal front, the actor is in a relationship with Malaika Arora and they have a nearly 12-year-age gap. The lovebirds are very vocal about their relationship in public and are often spotted spending time together.
