The 'Munni' of Tinseltown, Malaika Arora had tied the nuptial knot with actor, Arbaaz Khan, on December 12, 1998. However, after enjoying marital bliss for 18 years, the couple decided to part their ways and got divorced in 2017. Together, Malaika and her ex-husband, Arbaaz are blessed with a son, Arhaan Khan, who has been living with his mommy, ever since their divorce.
Talking about Arbaaz and Malaika's relationship, they were one of the most-loved couples in Tinseltown. The two were always vocal about their love for one another, and they inspired many people out there. However, there were rumours about Arbaaz dating another woman, before and after their divorce, and time and again, him and Malaika addressed and rubbished those baseless rumours.
During their appearance on Sajid Khan’s chat show, Sajid’s Superstar, Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan opened up about the ‘other woman’ rumours. When Sajid asked them if the accusations about ‘dusri aurat’ were true, Arbaaz said that the news was filtered. He also shared that he and his then-wife, Malaika wished to get re-married when they would complete 25 years of marital bliss. He was heard saying:
“When we will complete 25 years of marriage, we are going to get re-married. We had plans we will go to some exotic locations like Vegas and all and tie the knot and within 12 hours, the news was filtered and it was presumed that I was going to get married, there’s another woman in his life, he was going to leave the house.”
However, no matter how many times the couple faced those rumours, they kept their cool and never let it affect their marriage. Further, in the show, Arbaaz went on to add that he and Malaika had built a reputation for so many years and said that they were not going to tarnish their bond over one stupid incident. In his words:
“We have built a reputation together for these many years, not for it to be tarnished by one stupid incident.”
On the other hand, Malaika agreed to the same and revealed that at times, she feels that these disturbing rumours are the price that they have to pay for being a celebrity. However, she added that it hurt her when the media accused her and Arbaaz irresponsible and said:
"The saddest part is media accused us very irresponsibly and like Arbaaz said, we have built a life and reputation together for these many years. That is what hurts. At times we feel that this is the price we have to pay for being a celebrity."
Meanwhile, Malaika Arora is currently dating actor, Arjun Kapoor, and Arbaaz Khan is in a happy relationship with model, Giorgia Andriani.
