Actor Arjun Kapoor had a strained relationship with Salman Khan for a while now. However, a recent gesture by Arjun has refuted all the unverified media reports claiming that the actors were not on speaking terms. Kapoor was spotted at a Mumbai cinema on Monday, catching a screening of Salman Khan’s latest action thriller, ‘Tiger 3’. Despite reports of a strained relationship between the two actors, Arjun seemed to be enjoying the film alongside director Siddharth Anand. Sporting a low-profile look, he wore a black sweatshirt, matching pants, and a cap. While the cause of the rumored tension between Arjun and Salman remains unknown, it’s worth noting that Arjun is currently in a relationship with Malaika Arora, who was previously married to Salman Khan’s brother, Arbaaz Khan.
Arjun has remained tight-lipped about any past discord with Salman in the public eye. However, a 2020 interview with Arjun’s father, Boney Kapoor, shed light on their unique relationship. Boney Kapoor revealed that Salman Khan played a pivotal role in inspiring Arjun to embark on a career in acting. The elder Kapoor explained, “Arjun’s original aspiration was to become a director, so there were no initial plans to introduce him as an actor. But one day, Salman reached out to me and suggested that Arjun should explore acting, as he believed Arjun had the potential for it.” This pivotal moment in Arjun’s life, when Salman recognized his latent talent and encouraged him to explore it, marked the beginning of a mentorship that would significantly shape Arjun’s acting journey.
