Though Salman Khan was taken aback initially, he supported their relationship and had always taken his side in the relationship.
The relationship went on for 2 years and the actor claims this was his first and only serious relationship that he has ever been in.
Break Up With Arpita
He said, "I was 140 kgs, was assisting Nikhil advani in Salaam-E-Ishq, had girlfriend, would party and felt my life is headed in the right direction and thought would direct my first film by 22, till she broke up with me and suddenly I was confused about my future."
Even after break up, Arjun turned to Salman Khan for help. He said, "Even after breaking up I would hangout with Salman. He was my friend, my father-figure, older brother, everything at that point."
Arjun’s First Meet With Salman

Salman Made Arjun An Actor
He added, "It took Salman four years to embed in me how to become a professional actor. When I met casting director of Ishaqzaade, Shanoo Sharma, she said I looked like shit even though I had come down to 97 kilos.
Mom’s Last Call To Salman
When he informed his mom about the debut, she started crying. Sadly she passed soon after that. He said, "The last call my mother made from the hospital bed was to Salman Bhai. She knew about her condition by then. She thanked him for making me an actor. He told her he would take her abroad but within a week she passed away. He came to the funeral. Till he had come, the media was standing almost on top of the pyre. But he came and ensured I got some space privacy. When he came home that day, it was the tightest hug I have ever given him."
