If we say ‘Malaika Arora is a vampire’, it wouldn’t be technically wrong. Vampires don’t age, they look and stay the same for ages no matter what. And so does Malaika Arora. At 45 years old, she’s fit, fabulous, glowing, has the paparazzi clicking her almost everyday. Needless to say she’s barely fighting wrinkles. Rather, she’s fighting to keep her upcoming wedding a secret affair.
And we’re afraid if that’s even possible. Especially as despite trying their best, the latest ‘it’ couple are dropping hints to the media and we’re picking them up like bread crumbs being unintentionally dropped on the floor.
Inside gossip is bulging out that both Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora have sent out huge diktats to their respective teams to keep their upcoming April wedding a supremely private affair, and also to keep themselves free on the said dates.
As per goss, since Malaika Arora’s mother is a Christian, she believes in Christian rituals, their wedding will be a white Christian wedding, to take place roughly in the first week of April. Post walking the aisle in a private place, the couple plans to host a reception for all their Bollywood friends.
Here’s how their efforts to keep the wedding affair a national secret are probably not working the way they should
1 THE WOULD BE DULHAN AND BURI NAZAR
Recently, at the big fat and opulent wedding of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta, Malaika was spotted wearing an evil eye on her wrist. Was that a style statement or she was following the age-old Indian tradition of the bride wearing a kaala dhaaga / red dhaaga / evil eye to ward off any troubles that might come her way in the run up to her D-day.
2 BESTIE HAS SPILLED ALL THE BEANS!
One of Malaika Arora’s BFFs (Best Friends Forever) Karan Johar, who is also a reputed insider of the film industry, has openly spoken about Malaika Arora Arjun Kapoor April wedding on his famous show ‘Koffee With Karan’ more times than one. The first time he spilled the beans when Malaika made a guest appearance. He said that very soon you are going to walk the aisle. The second time Karan Johar, confidently told Kareena Kapoor Khan that he knows she is going to be one of the bridesmaids at the upcoming wedding. It is to be noted that neither Malaika nor Kareena denied what he said. They just did not add anything to what he already revealed and rather laughed it off.
3 THEY HAVE BOUGHT A HOUSE
As per multiple reports, Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor have recently bought a flat in a plush society near Mumbai’s Lokhandwala complex. It’s a joint purchase — which means both might have invested approximately equal amount. This indicates marriage or at the least, a live-in.
4 FAMILY BONDING
Earlier this month, at Rhea Kapoor’s birthday, Malaika Arora was seen bonding with Arjun Kapoor’s family. It was Rhea Kapoor’s birthday and the two were seen bonding with other couples — Natasha Poonawala with husband Adar, Sonam and Anand Ahuja, Rhea Kapoor with beau Karan Boolani and Malaika -Arjun. Evidently, the two are making efforts to mingle with each other’s respective family and friends to make it a smooth sail in the coming days.
There’s something about Malaika that her charm fails to fade away. She’s a single mother, a style icon, a yoga trainer, a fashion designer, a celebrity who walks the ramp, judges reality shows and makes public appearances.
Malaika’s aura seems to be somewhat like a zen monk. It’s almost like beneath all the glamour, shimmer and oomph, the Pradas and the Guccis, lies a woman who has her head clearly on top of her heels, an exceptionally calm mind, and a heart that brings warmth to all those around her.
No wonder then that not just Arjun Kapoor, anyone would like to not just spend some time, but rather, wake up next to her every morning. This girl’s quite a catch.
