Actors Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora Khan have decided to part ways after 17 years of marriage. They appeared before the Bandra family court through their advocates Swati Sathe and Amruta Sathe, respectively, for their divorce proceedings on Tuesday (November 29). They had filed for divorce by mutual consent earlier this month, and on Tuesday, they appeared for their first session of mandatory counselling before the family court judge.
The actors announced their separation early this year and applied for divorce by mutual content. 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.
