Actors Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora Khan have been formally granted divorce by a family court in Bandra on Thursday. The two parted ways through mutual consent after 17 years of marriage.

The couple’s lawyers, advocates Kranti Sathe and Amrita Sathe Pathak told HT that Malaika had not sought any alimony from Arbaaz Khan.

The actors announced their separation early this year and applied for divorce by mutual consent. As per the law, six months of counselling sessions are mandatory to decide if the couple wants to reconcile before the court grants a divorce.

Shortly before announcing their separation, Malaika moved out of the house she shared with Arbaaz and took her son, Arhaan, along with her. But despite their differences, they have been spotted together at various occasions, the most recent one being their son’s birthday party, with Arbaaz’s entire family in attendance.

They had appeared for their first session of mandatory counselling before the family court judge.
