"This one was my first blind date but it was a good one."
Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor has been caught on a “blind date” with another woman while still being in a relationship with his girlfriend Malaika Arora.
Arjun and Malaika’s relationship captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide. However, it received negative reactions from many people who condemned their 12-year age gap.
Despite many considering their love to be rather unconventional, the two lovebirds have continued to go from strength to strength.
The couple often make headlines for their PDA (public display of affection) moments as they paint the town red with their love for one another.
Now, it seems Arjun is in the spotlight for his “blind date” leading many people to question his relationship with Malaika Arora.
Yet worry not, Arjun’s “blind date” was, in fact, a part of Netflix’s latest reality show, What The Love! with Karan Johar (2020). The dating reality show is hosted by the man himself, filmmaker Karan Johar.
With the help of celebrity guests and a styling team, the show aims to help singletons revamp themselves to set them on the road to finding true love.
It also helps people face the realities of love allowing them to get ready to pursue it.
Arjun Kapoor took to Instagram to share a video from behind the scenes of What The Love! with Karan Johar (2020).
Arjun captioned the post saying: “What The Love! – Behind The Scenes. This one was my first blind date but it was a good one. What The Love! Now streaming on Netflix.”
Matchmaker Karan Johar set contestant Ashi up with Arjun Kapoor. The duo ate pizza and chatted away.
Arjun even asked Ashi about her ideal guy and pretended to behave accordingly to hold her attention. It appears Arjun and Ashi had a lovely and comfortable first date.
Speaking to Karan about his first blind date experience with Ashi, Arjun explained:
“It’s my first blind date. Actually, my first ‘date’ really especially since I’ve become an actor so it was surprisingly fun.
“I was nervous but it was nice, Ashi is a fun girl.”
“She’s filmy and she’s got a silly, goofy sense of humour. She has a lot of layers to peel off but I guess that’s something that’ll happen in due course but I enjoyed myself. It’s a nice memory to hold on to.”
In season one of What The Love! with Karan Johar, filmmaker Karan Johar mentors six individuals through their personal battles as they seek love.
We look forward to the reality dating show coming to Netflix soon.
