Malaika Arora has been making quite a lot of headlines for her relationship with actor Arjun Kapoor. The duo is caught on dinner dates and family events together, which suggest that their romance is on its peak right now. Malaika Arora divorced her ex-husband Arbaaz Khan in 2017. Though their marriage has called its end, they continue to remain good friends and co-parenting their 16-year-old kid Arhaan. Recently, on Kareena Kapoor Khan’s radio show, Malaika spilled beans on her divorce.
She revealed that when she told her family and friends about her decision, they asked her to think about it again.
"I think sab ki pehli yehi raai hai ki mat karna. Koi aapko nahi kahega ki, 'Haan, haan, please jayiye, kariye.' That's the first thing, ki aap soch samajh ke yeh decision lena. I went through the same thing,” she said.
Malaika Arora revealed that her family asked her to rethink her decision about divorcing Arbaaz Khan even the night before the divorce hearing. She further 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.”
However, later when they realised that divorce is what Malaika wanted, they stood by her.
“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.
Malaika Arora got second time lucky in love when she found Arjun Kapoor. According to the rumour mills, they are planning to take their relationship to the next level.
