The rumours may just be true on this one. Looks like Malaika Arora Khan has indeed filed for divorce from her husband of 17 years, producer-actor Arbaaz Khan.
Malaika is not ready to reconsider her decision even on brother-in-law and superstar Salman Khan’s request, suggests a report in Mumbai Mirror.
The two recently hosted a TV reality show, Power Couple on Sony Entertainment Television, together. However, Arbaaz was often left on his own as Malaika would repeatedly leave to tend to other commitments.
They appeared together in just three episodes but after much persuasion, agreed to shoot together. However, they would always reach the sets or leave for home in separate cars and stay in separate hotel rooms.
This is the last photo he posted of her on Instagram, on Diwali 2015:
Rumours first started flying in January when entertainment portal spotboye.com reported that Malaika moved out of their Bandra home recently and shifted to an apartment in Khar, along with her 14-year-old son Arhaan. This apartment is in the same building in which her sister actor Amrita Arora Ladak’s in-laws stay. Buzz is that Malaika is in a relationship with a British businessman.
Reacting to rumours, Arbaaz posted a Dubsmash video on his Instagram account in February. He lip-synced to the famous Kishore Kumar song, Kuch To Log Kahenge from Rajesh Khanna-Sharmila Tagore-starrer Amar Prem (1972). “Some people need to mind their business, stop talking and writing bullshit and concentrate on their own miserable lives,” he wrote in the post.
We don’t how much truth there was in his words but we do hope they sort out their differences and stay happy.
