Bollywood’s Arjun Kapoor has Indian media on his radar after reports of his actor-girlfriend Malaika Arora being pregnant started circulating online. Taking to his Instagram stories, Kapoor condemned the fake reports and warned the media not to “play” with their personal lives.

Sharing a screenshot of a now deleted news post by Pinkvilla, Kapoor tagged the publication and the author Nikita Dalvi and wrote, “This is the lowest that you could have gone and you have done it by being casual, insensitive and absolutely unethical in carrying garbage news. This journalist has been writing such pieces regularly and getting away with it because we tend to ignore these fake gossip articles while they spread across media and become the truth. This is not done. Don’t dare to play with our personal lives.”

The initial report by Pinkvilla claimed that the couple was expecting their first child together and credited it to a ‘source’. The source told the publication that Arora and Kapoor announced the news to their close friends and family during their trip to London earlier this year. The couple was in London in October according to photos shared by them on Instagram.

Earlier, the Indian media also reported that the couple has gotten engaged as Arora shared a photo of herself with the caption, “I said YES.” However, that was for her OTT debut, Moving In with Malaika for Disneyplus Hotstar.

Arora and Arjun went public with their relationship in 2019 after years of dating in secret, according to the Hindustan Times. Arora, who rose to fame after her dance to ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ in Dil Se (1998), was earlier married to Arbaaz Khan and in 2017, they were officially divorced. They have a 20-year-old son together, named Arhaan Khan.
