New Delhi: Actress Malaika Arora was the star of a brunch party on Saturday, which was held to celebrate the birthday of Preeta Sukhtankar, the founder of The Label Life, an online portal whose part Malaika is. Accompanying Malaika at the party was Arjun Kapoor, who has been rumoured to be dating the Dabangg actress. Malaika, who is separated from Arbaaz Khan and has filed for divorce last year, had earlier addressed rumours about her acquaintance with the Half Girlfriend actor and told DNA: "Arjun is a very good friend of mine. But people give a very different meaning to it which isn't true."

At the party, Malaika looked ravishing in blue and white separates designed by Deme by Gabriella while Arjun wore black and denims.
Sussanne, Aditi and Maria were pretty in shades of pastel while Karan arrived with a bouquet of flowers.
