Malaika Arora tied the knot with Arbaaz Khan in 1998. The duo shocked everyone when they announced the news of their separation in 2016. It was in 2017 that they were granted a divorce and two years from then, both, Malaika and Arbaaz seem to have moved on with their lives. On one hand, where Malaika Arora is reportedly in a relationship with Arjun Kapoor, Arbaaz Khan is happy in the company of Giorgia Andriani.
Malaika opened up about her divorce with Arbaaz and her family's reaction
In a chat show hosted by Kareena Kapoor, Malaika opened up about her divorce with Arbaaz and her family's reaction. Throwing light about it, she said, “I think everyone's first response was 'Don't do it'. No one will tell you, 'Yes, please go ahead and do it'. That's the first thing everyone says, to think things through before coming to a decision.” She further said that even the night before she got divorced, her family sat down with her and asked her if she was a hundred per cent sure about her decision.
Malaika and Arbaaz weighed every single pro and con before arriving at the decision to end their marriage
The 46-year-old star shared that she and Arbaaz "weighed every single pro and con" before arriving at the decision to end their marriage. Arbaaz and Malaika have a 17-year-old son, Arhaan. Malaika also said in that chat show, “I would much rather see my child in a happy environment than be subjected to an environment that is completely disruptive. With time, my child is far more accepting. He can see that we both as individuals are far more happy than we were in our marriage.”
