When a news portal broke the news of Arjun Kapoor’s wedding and if it isn’t true then why didn’t Arjun or his intended bride Malaika Arora immediately deny the rumour? The unpalatable truth is; many stars in relationships enjoy creating an aura of ambivalence around their relationship status. Let them keep guessing! It keeps their fans titillated and the stars remain committed or half-committed without having to admit it. This works to the benefit of those couples who are in an open relationship. For example, Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha never admitted to being in a relationship, so they never broke up, right?
What is baffling is when young single people with no baggage of guilt decide to not go public with their relationship. What sense does that make, except to tease, provoke and tantalize their fans?
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone were in a committed-for-life relationship for nearly five years. Even when they announced their wedding they didn’t really come out publicly about their relationship. For all we know, they plunged into marriage without being in a relationship. And never mind if they were seen together everywhere from airports to movie theatres. Luckily this couple spared us the “we-are-just-good-friends” nonsense.
Now we have Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora who are, to everyone’s knowledge, a couple. You have to be blind to miss their togetherness. They go out to dinners together, hold hands in public, and attend family functions together. They cannot claim their relationship to be private.
Because it isn’t.
They show the world they are in love. But they won’t say they are. They are getting married? They are not getting married? They won’t admit or deny the reports. Does this make any sense? If the rumours of their impending wedding are not true why are they not denying it? If the rumours are true why are they not admitting it?
