Bollywood couple Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan divorced in 2017, and it has been two years since and the duo has moved on with their respective lives. While Arbaaz Khan has found love again in model Giorgia Andriani, Malaika is painting the town red with Arjun Kapoor.
Recently, Arbaaz Khan opened up about his equation with ex-wife Malaika and said that their 16-year-old son Arhaan Khan has kept them 'bonded' post the split. The 'Dabangg 3' actor said that they have mutual respect for each other and their families. The pair who has been married for about 20 years shares a cordial relationship, and are connected by their Arhaan.
Previously, when Malaika Arora appeared in Kareena Kapoor's talk show 'What Women Want', she opened up about her broken marriage and said the same thing. When asked about how tough it is to take the decision, she said, "Well 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 have to point fingers at someone because of its general human nature to go about things... but for me happiness is more important, it's not just me but happiness of everybody around."
"We were just two people in a situation where we were making each other extremely unhappy which was impacting everybody else's life. So it means that I have to make it or take such a major decision in my life," she added.
Talking about having a child in a broken marriage, she said, "I would rather like to see my child in an environment which is happy rather than one which is completely disruptive. He can see that we as individuals are far more happy than what we were in that marriage."
She was then asked about her views on being friends with her ex-husband, to which she replied, "That's a tricky one because some manage to strike that balance, some never. I think it's more when you have a child involved; it's essential to continue having some sort of a cordial relationship."
"I wouldn't say that I and Arbaaz are best of friends or something like that, but I think we are cordial, we have a very healthy relationship and of course, our child is the most important factor in our life," she said.
Meanwhile, Malaika Arora who is dating Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor recently made their relationship official. On Arjun Kapoor's birthday last month she updated a love-filled post announcing the same.
On the other hand, Arbaaz Khan's has instigated wedding rumors with girlfriend Giorgia Andriani. Speaking about how he has not lost faith in the institution of marriage following his divorce with Malaika, he reportedly said that there’s a good chance that it might happen again in his life.
While answering the question if he will marry again, “Maybe I will....Let’s see whenever that opportunity or the person or the scenario arises but I have not gone disillusioned or bitter by that now.”
