What Attracts Bollywood Guys To Older Women

Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora To Go Public?

Priyanka Chopra  and Nick Jonas have company.  Older women in love with younger  guys seems to be a trend  taking hold of  the  entertainment industry. There is  a lot in common  between  the two  newly ‘outed’ couples  in the entertainment industry, Arjun  Kapoor-Malaika Arora amd Harshvardhan Rane-Kim Sharma.

Both the  men are  at least 10  years  junior to the woman with whom they have chosen to spend  the  rest of their lives.

And let’s not beat around the bush: Arjun-Malaika, Harshvardhan-Kim  intend to stay together  and  are planning a matrimonial togetherness in the near future. Can’t say exactly when since both need to sort of the  clutter caused by  earlier relationships.

There is one  more trait in common between  the two couples. They have both decided to throw  all caution to the winds. On more than one occasion recently both couples were seen indulging in  PDA without a care  in the world.

But hang on.They won’t make any formal announcement  on their relationship  status. Does that  make  any sense  ?Not really.  It’s like  a milking  a cow that’s  in gestation.

I did manage to  speak to one-half of one  of  the couples who says, “What is there to announce? We are not together to make news. We just want to be together. If  the public is  watching we are okay with that. If they weren’t watching we’d still  be okay with that.”

Be as it might,   both Arjun-Malaika and Harshvardhan-Kim have ceased to worry about how their  relationship  looks  to the  outside world. Perhaps Priyanka Chopra’s khullam khulla  association with Nick  Jonas has helped other women with young lovers to shed their inhibitions.

Interestingly Bollywood  has a long history  of  younger men marrying  older women. Matinee idol Shashi Kapoor  was  a good 10 years junior  to his wife Jennifer . They shared one  of   the most  successful marriages  in the history  of Indian cinema. She looked after every  aspect of his  life, When she passed away, Shashi fell apart.

Saif Ali Khan married Amrita Singh who was 12 years  her junior. Their marriage  was annulled  many years  ago on a very bitter note. Arjun Rampal and Farhan Akhtar were  married to women quite a  few years  older. They  both had  two daughters each from their wives and have  quit the marital alliance and have moved on in life.

Abhishek Bachchan whose wife the beauteous  Aishwarya Rai is some years his senior, says  age  is never  a factor to define  a marriage. Love is.

Amen to that.
