After years of togetherness, one of the most admired couples of Bollywood – Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora – parted ways. The two are parents to a 16-year-old Arhaan, who, unfortunately, couldn’t stop them from ending their marriage. Fast forward to now, both Malaika and Arbaaz have moved on in their respective lives. While Malaika has found love in Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, Arbaaz is head over heels for his ladylove and Italian model, Giorgia Adriani. The two, however, continue to maintain a cordial relationship.
Malaika Arora, in a recent interview with Pinkvilla, revealed that her separation with Arbaaz, in no way, will affect the kind of bond he shares with the Arora family. Expressing her point of view, Malaika asserted, “Relationships aren't built overnight, they are built over time. They are very, very special and personal to everybody. You can't just snap ties. It (Arbaaz' bond with Amrita) is independent of whatever may have transpired between two adults. That's independent and they continue to have it. I think my parents have always said it...My sister has maintained it, my brother-in-law has maintained.”
Further, Malaika opened up on her family’s current equation with Arbaaz, “Arbaaz is not just somebody that they just know. He's like a son to them, he's like a friend to them, he is family. At the end of the day, he's my child's father you know. So certain things can never ever be neglected or overlooked and I think that's how it should be.”
In the past, Arbaaz Khan, too, confessed how divorce hasn’t affected their cordial relationship and that they don’t hate each other.
