Kareena and Saif are often asked about the age difference between them. Talking about the age gap, in a post by Humans of Bombay, Kareena had said, “He’s 10 years older than me and has two children. But for me, he was just Saif – he helped me heal and made me fall in love with myself.”
Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora
Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor had everyone speculating about their relationship for the longest time until one day they went public about it. Malaika and Arjun have an age gap of 9 years that have been the hot topic of discussion. In an interview with Bombay Times, Malaika opened up about her relationship and said, “Can’t a woman find love in a man younger than her? If someone makes you happy and enriches your life, what’s the harm? I am 45 that doesn’t make me dead or someone who’s over the hill. I enjoy my life and feel happy about having such a special equation with a man younger than me. You have to forget the barriers and nurture relationships.”
Yes, when it comes to love then age, class, religion, culture – nothing matters at all. And even we totally agree with the philosophy – “Age is just a number”.
