Ishqzaade actor Arjun Kapoor has made it abundantly clear, over several occasions that he is lucky to have Bhaijaan Salman's support and guidance in his life but apparently, Arjun's growing closeness with bhai's ex sister-in-law, Malaika Khan is creating a rift between the two actors.
Arbaaz Khan and Malaika separated in 2016
According to sources, Arjun is the reason behind Malaika's divorce with Arbaaz Khan but the ex-couple have not commented about it. Although, it has been evident that Arjun is ignoring Salman Khan at events and maintained a distance from him.
If the reports are to be believed, Arjun is now, trying to sort everything out and has been in constant touch with Salman's sister, Arpita Khan Sharma and Alvira Agnihotri, ever since he was convicted in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case, and find out about Salman's welfare.
"Salman has been informed about Arjun's concern, but it's not known yet if the former will reciprocate the gesture. Salman Khan isn't telling anybody not to work with Arjun Kapoor. He doesn't need to. But a lot of filmmakers are avoiding Arjun Kapoor because they don't want to offend Salman Khan," a source revealed.
In 2005, when Arjun's father and Bollywood's prominent producer, Boney Kapoor was having a hard time in making ends meet, Salman had offered to work in his film No Entry for free! Due to which, daddy Boney has also advised his darling son Arjun to maintain his distance from Malaika Arora.
On a related note, Arjun is currently busy with Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Namastey England, co-starring Parineeti Chopra.
