Malaika Arora finally opens up about her divorce with Arbaaz Khan and how difficult decision it was for her. Malaika was on Kareena Kapoor Khan’s radio show where she revealed many things about her life and what was the reason behind the divorce. 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”.
She further went on to reveal that her family was by her side and gave her strength. “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,” she added.
However, she decided to go through with the divorce as she and Arbaaz were in an unhappy marriage. “We did think about a lot of things and weighed every single pro and con. And then we decided, it’s better off that we move our separate ways because we’d just be better people. Because we were two people in a situation making each other extremely unhappy which was impacting everybody else’s life around us,” she said.
Malaika and Arbaaz divorced in 2017 after almost 19 years of marriage; they have a 16-year-old son, Arhaan.
