Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora announced their separation three years ago and eventually got divorced in 2017. They had time and again clamed that they took the decision because of being unhappy and just like every couple, they had put in many thoughts before opting for divorce. Now two years later, both of them have moved on in their personal lives as Arbaaz is dating Giorgia Andriani and Malaika is with Arjun Kapoor. But despite that, the two often come together to be with their son Arhaan Khan, who is 17 years of age.
In an interview with a portal, Arbaaz talked about his divorce with Malaika and revealed their son Arhaan's reaction to it. "When you have a child, it is a very difficult but a necessary step. It had come to a point where this was the only way to go about it to make this equation as okay as possible." Arbaaz also said, "My boy was almost 12 at that time, he had a fair understanding. He was aware of what was happening. There wasn’t much to explain to him," he added.
Stating the reason he did not fight for Arhaan's custody, Arbaaz pointed out, "I am there for him. She has the custody of my child and didn’t want to even fight for custody because I felt when the child is younger, he needs his mother. Now he is 17, he will soon to be 18, he will make up his mind where he wants to be… he is a lovely boy."
Well, indeed true!
Work wise, Arbaaz recently reprised his role of Makhanchand Pandey in Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 3.
