Malaika is dating Arjun Kapoor while Arbaaz Khan is in a relationship with Giorgia Andriani since their split. The two continue to co-parent their son Arhaan Khan, 19. Malaika recently said that she and Arbaaz have a much better equation after they decided to call it quits.

Asked if she continues to be friends with Arbaaz Khan, Malaika told Masala magazine, "We have a better equation now. We are far more mature. We’re just happier, calmer people. He’s a wonderful man, I only wish him the best in life. Sometimes, people are wonderful but they just aren’t great together. That’s just how it is. I would always wish him well."

She added about her decision to end the marriage, "I think I made my choice and I put myself first. And I think by doing that, I am a much better person today. I have a better relationship with my son; he sees that I am much happier. I have a much better relationship with my ex-husband. I’m happy I made these decisions and I stood up for myself. So, for women out there, don’t be scared. Don’t be afraid to follow your heart. Yes, you will ruffle feathers but life is not easy. You can’t make everyone happy."

Malaika was last seen on TV as one of the judges on India's Best Dancer. Arbaaz will be next seen in Sony LIV's show Tanaav, an adaptation of the Israeli show Fauda. He stars alongside Satyadeep Mishra, Manav Vij, Arslan Goni, Rajat Kapoor, Zarina Wahab, Shashank Arora, and Ekta Kaul among others in the tense political drama.
