Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora have been a couple worth looking upto for many years. The duo have been married for 18 years till the time they mutually decided to call it quits..
While many speculated from one end that Malaika’s growing proximity with Arjun Kapoor then (her current boyfriend) was the reason behind the split, Arbaaz too was spotted on numerous occasions hanging around with designer Giorgia Andriani.
While both never felt like opening up on their divorce before, Malaika for the first time decided to come out clear on her divorce and the attached ramifications to it on Kareena Kapoor’s radio show ‘What Women Want’ on 104.8 FM Ishq.
Malaika opened up on the show and we quote –
“It’s never ever easy like no other major decision in your life and at the end of the day, someone has to be blamed. You always have to point fingers at someone. I think that’s the general human nature to go about things. It’s never easy, but the person that I am, for me happiness is the most important. And it’s not just me is the happiness for everybody around. So even if it means that I have to make or take such a major decision in my life, of course, I didn’t do it alone. There are two people involved. And I think we eventually did think about a lot of things, we weighed every single pros and cons and then we decided that I think it’s better off that we go our separate ways because I think we’ll just be better people.”
She even shared that best advice that people gave. “The best advice I think everybody said, If this is a decision you’re making then we are really proud of you and in our eyes, you are a strong woman. So, I think for me that really .. it gave me that extra strength that I needed. I have never spoken about this. And I’ve probably never been so vociferous about something.”
However she maintained that despite the divorce, she shares a very healthy relationship with Arbaaz and their son is primarily the reason behind it.
Well now that the duo have parted ways, they are happy in their individual lives because that’s all that matters at the end of the day.
