Speaking to Kareena Kapoor, Malaika Arora stated that everyone’s first response was "Don’t do it." No one would come up to her and ask her to go ahead and finalise the divorce. The first thing everyone told her was to think things through before coming to a final decision. 

Malaika Arora then revealed 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 Arora added that their questions were well-intentioned, as they were people who worried and cared about her. However, Malaika Arora revealed that she got extra strength from her friends and family after they understood her point and supported her.
