MUMBAI: Post divorce and break ups, ex-couples are always in a conundrum whether to remain friends or not.
Bollywood ex-couples Hrithik Roshan-Sussanne Khan and Arbaaz Khan-Malaika Arora surely fall in the ‘let’s be friends’ bracket.
The recently divorced couple, Malaika and Arbaaz are often spotted spending time together with family and friends. The two are seen going out on lunch and dinners along their mutual social circles reports
The ex-couple seems to be dealing with their divorce quite maturely. Arbaaz had many times spoken his heart out about his broken marriage with Malaika. Now, for the first time, the Chaiyya Chaiyya diva speaks up about the split and how spending time with ex-husband Arbaaz Khan keeps their son happy.
“Arbaaz is a part of my family, the father of my child. Certain equations don’t change overnight,” says Malaika.
“Things that happened should remain between us. It’s personal. We don’t have to prove anything to anybody,” the actor reasons.
“(Meeting Arbaaz) makes my son happy, and that makes me happy. Come on! For Amu (sister Amrita Arora Ladak), he’s like a brother, and he is a son to my parents. What happened is between us,” she adds during a recent interview.
Malaika also opens up about her divorce and why she still uses ‘Khan’ as her surname on Instagram for the first time. During an interview with Mid-Day, Malaika was asked about why she still uses the suname Khan and if she even feels single, to which the actor replies:
“Yes, I do use Khan (laughs). God, I haven’t thought about it (being single). Honestly, it hasn’t been a conscious decision. What has to happen will happen organically. Let’s see where life takes me.”
The actor went on to share the tough separation process. “Arbaaz and I have known each other all our lives. It was emotionally difficult, but we haven’t really talked about it because we are private individuals. He is very important to me. No matter what happens or where life takes us, Arbaaz will always be integral to my life,” she said.
