After almost 19 years of togetherness, Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan decided to end their marriage. They share a 16-year-old son Arhaan Khan, however, even he could not be a reason for them to be together. For so long, nobody knew what went wrong and why did they sign up for a divorce in 2017. Now, after almost two years, Malaika has broken her silence on the separation and revealed the reason behind their split. Unlike speculations, neither infidelity nor money was the reason behind this decision. Malaika states that it was a mature decision made by two people who were unhappy together.
"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," said Malaika on her bestie Kareena Kapoor's chat show What Women Want.

Malaika also spoke about how her family reacted and what happened the night before the divorce. She said, "Nobody really encourages you to go right ahead. Even the night before the divorce, I had my family sit with me and ask me, are you sure? I heard this all along and perhaps rightly so because these are people who worry and care for you."
Before the divorce, Malaika and Arbaaz were said to be power couple but destiny had something else planned. Now, Malaika is rumoured to be dating Arjun Kapoor while Arbaaz is in a relationship with Italian model Giorgia Andriani.
