She then said, “And unfortunately not only am I old, I am also dating a younger man. I mean I have guts. I mean I am ruining his life, right? I am not ruining his life. It’s not like he was going to school and he couldn’t focus on studies and I told him to come with me. I mean, every time we are on a date, it’s not like he is bunking classes. I didn’t catch him on the street while he was catching Pokemon.” Also Read – Amid break up rumours, Malaika Arora shares cryptic note on Arjun Kapoor’s birthday; says ‘I like people that I can trust’

Malaika then put her foot down and said that Arjun is a goddam grown up man. They are two consenting adults and can make their own life decisions. She also used a popular expression to explain how older women are judged for dating younger men. “If an older man dates a younger girl, he is a player. But if an older woman dates a younger man, she is a cougar. This is not fair,” she said.

During the show, Arjun also sent Malaika a video message to encourage her for her stand-up comic act and reminded her that first people will laugh at you, then they will laugh with you. He also called her the funniest person around since she laughs at all of his jokes. He also told her that she has already won the battle when she wanted to do this, despite her insecurities about cracking jokes in public or on stage. He concluded his message saying, “But you got this.”
