Malaika Arora revealed that when she told her family about her decision to divorce with Arbaaz Khan, everyone appealed to her not to do so. In 2016, Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora announced their separation and gave a shock to the film industry. Soon after, many types of theories started coming up.
This includes everything from their extramarital affair to their lifestyle. He was forced to refute all these things by issuing a statement describing them as ‘wrong and malicious information’.
They divorced in May 2017. Although Arbaaz and Malaika have not given many details of their divorce, she surprisingly spoke openly on the subject when she appeared on Kareena Kapoor Khan’s radio show What Women Want. He revealed that his family had requested him to reconsider and think about things even on the first night of divorce.
Explaining this, Malaika Arora said, ‘I think everyone’s first reaction was that don’t do it. Nobody will say to you that yes, please go ahead and do it. I went through the same thing. ‘ Malaika further said, ‘Even a day before the divorce, my family made me sit together and asked me again, are you sure? Are you 100 percent adamant about your decision? These are people who worry and care so they definitely say so. ‘
Malaika further said, ‘I got’ extra strength ‘from my friends and family, once they understood that I am firm in my decision to end my marriage with Arbaaz, they supported me.’
