What Happened A Day Before Malaika-Arbaaz Divorce

Arbaaz Khan and Maliaka Arora - Sakshi Post

It was an unexpected news for the film buffs when Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora announced their decision to go separate ways. Their divorce was finalized in May 2017. The former couple, who were married for 18 years, have a 16-year-old son Arhaan together.

While they have continued to remain friends even post their divorce, both Arbaaz and Malaika have refrained from making public statements in this context.

In a first, Malaika opened about her divorce on Kareena Kapoor Khan's radio show What Women Want, which airs on Ishq 104.8 FM. Revealing that her friends and family had asked to reconsider her decision, Malaika said, "I think everyone's first advice would be not to go through with it. No one would say, to go ahead and get divorced. That's the first thing, they always suggest to take the decision after considering every aspect. I went through the same thing."

She even shared that her family had even asked her to think again on the night before her divorce hearing. Malaika said, "Even the night before I got divorced, I had my family sit with me and ask me yet again, 'Are you sure? Are you 100 per cent about your decision?' So I think that was something I heard all along and rightly so. These are the people who worry and care so they will definitely say that."

The actress, however, got support from her family and friends once they realized she was certain about the decision to end her marriage with Arbaaz. She revealed, "Everybody said, 'If this is the decision that you're making, then we're really proud of you and in our eyes, you are a strong woman.' So for me, that kind of gave me that extra strength that I needed."

While Malaika managed to get through this tough phase of her life, the actress has found love again with actor Arjun Kapoor. Reports suggest that the couple are planning to get hitched soon.
