Malaika Arora, who has ended her 18 years old marriage with Arbaaz and still uses ‘Khan’ after her name, has never really bothered to talk about her divorce with the media. Remember how a troll called Malaika a “shit woman” for using her husband ‘s money? The actress gave a bang on reply to the troll.
Malaika never spoke about her relationship issues and this made people make up their own stories. Putting all the rumors and stories to end, Malaika has finally opened about her divorce with Arbaaz Khan. In her latest interview, the actress shared how her life has changed,
It has changed a lot. But except with a few friends, I don’t discuss my life. My sister often asks me: Does your shadow know what you are doing? But that’s me. Earlier, I would push issues [I had to deal with] away. Only now have I begun to confront them. After a very long time, I can say that I feel peaceful.
Referring to the problems that occurred in her relationship, Malaika said,
Yes. I didn’t feel the need to talk about what’s happened the last few years because the people who need to know, already do. Life has a way of making things fall into place, teaching you and making you stronger. One day you are sitting in your bed and thinking, sh** man! What am I going to do? Everything is just falling apart! You feel like there is no hope and you’ve reached the end of the road. But then life challenges you. It pushes and tests you, but also prepares you for whatever lies ahead. I definitely feel stronger.
Recalling that the separation was tough for them, the actress said,
Yes, of course. Arbaaz and I have known each other all our lives. It was emotionally difficult, but we haven’t really talked about it because we are private individuals. He is very important to me. No matter what happens or where life takes us, Arbaaz will always be integral to my life.
We have often seen the two together even after their divorce. Talking about those times, Malaika said,
Arbaaz is a part of my family, the father of my child. Certain equations don’t change overnight. The things that happened should remain between us. It’s personal. We don’t have to prove anything to anybody. Meeting Arbaaz makes my son happy, and that makes me happy. Come on! For Amu (sister Amrita Arora), he’s like a brother, and he is a son to my parents. What happened is between us.
Time never heals anything, it just teaches us ways to bear the pain.
