Indian actor, director and film producer, Arbaaz Khan keeps making it to the headlines for one or the other reason. Not his professional life but his personal life has more been the talk of the town. Arbaaz Khan was married to famous Bollywood diva, Malaika Arora Khan and their divorce after 18 years of a blissful nuptial bond was an utter shock to everyone. Neither Arbaaz nor Malaika ever spoke about the reason behind their split but the buzz is that they might have fallen apart after all these years.

As per the latest buzz, Arbaaz is apparently dating an Italian model, Giorgia Andriani. The alleged lovebirds are often spotted together on dinner dates, family get-togethers and even on vacations. Their relationship seems to be going strong so much so that he invited her on Ganesh Chaturthi at sister, Arpita Khan’s house. The ‘so-called’ couple has been painting the town red and reached at the Ganpati celebrations together. And something very interesting happened on the occasion.
At the celebrations, Arbaaz Khan’s ex-wife, Malaika Arora Khan was also present, and this was the ladies' first face off. People would have expected Malaika to behave weird and awkward, but guys nothing like this happened. It seems Malaika is genuinely happy for her ex-husband Arbaaz, to have moved on in life. To everyone’s surprise, Malaika and Georgia were very cordial and warm with each other.
As per the reports, it was neither Arbaaz nor Arpita, but Malaika’s own baby sister, Amrita Arora, introduced them to each other. For the ones who don’t know, Amrita shares a friendly bond with Georgia and was even seen enjoying a short trip with her to an unknown location. They were just together got clicked at the airport.

Ever since his divorce with Malaika, Arbaaz has been linked with a lot of other girls. At first, he was snapped with a lookalike of Malaika in Goa having a fun vacation with her whose name was Yellow. He later clarified and said, “If you are talking about Yellow, she is just a friend. She is somebody who I meet when I go to Goa. She owns a restaurant.” And then, he was linked to a Romanian girl, Alexandria, but he dismissed all those rumours.
In an interview with DNA, Arbaaz opened up about his personal life. He said, "I am in a good space at this point in time. Everybody has their scenarios, challenges, ups and downs, happiness and disappointments... I am not saying that any of those are completely washed away. There will always be a sense of things you want to achieve, where you want to be, a sense of disappointment, a few regrets here and there. Those are always going to linger. How you cope with them and how you move on is what your life is about. Right now, I am in a better space because I am able to cope with whatever challenges are thrown at me."

He also talked about Malaika in the same interview and went on to add, “I do depend on people. I am dependent and I don’t know anybody who is not, but people like to believe they do not need anybody for anything, it’s not true. Everybody needs somebody for some reason. Coming back to my relationship, I had come to a stage where I needed Malaika in my life.”
When asked if she became his habit, he remarked, “No, not in a negative way. Needed her in a way like you need water. It’s not whether you like it or not, you need it, like air. If I don’t get it, I’ll die. So, there comes a point in your life that somebody in your life — your parent, brother, sister or colleague — you need them like that and you should never look at anyone like that. You give someone the importance that they become so valuable in your life. Imagine somebody taking water or oxygen away from you, how would you feel? That’s almost what I felt for a while. Of course, you get used to it. Life goes on, you move on, and you have to make sense of what’s happened and you somehow find that. You cannot always get answers."

And further continued, "I look back and see 22 years of togetherness — five years of courtship and 17 years of marriage and a child. And I wonder why this and why that and what could have been corrected. And if there were mistakes from my end or her side. We just couldn’t work around it. We did our bit of counselling... What I am saying is that you should never be embarrassed when you say you are dependent on somebody. I am talking about a genuine need where you feel good/bad/ugly, I cannot do without you. If the air is bad, will you not breathe it? If the water is dirty, will you not drink it? Somebody creates a scenario; you try and live with that. I was in that space where Malaika was somebody I couldn’t live without, under any circumstances. You know, I can never completely deal with it.”
He also shared his views on love and giving marriage a second chance. Arbaaz gushed, “I feel there is a time and an age for sowing your wild oats. I had that phase before I was 26 when I met Malaika. Before that, I was playing the field. I was not in committed relationships, I had a number of girlfriends. When I met Malaika, I felt the need to get married and after four years of dating, we got married when I was 30. I really don’t know whether I have it in me at this point to go through the entire scenario of commitment and giving it everything. The mindset right now, is that if somebody comes into my life, I will see it then…. Maybe even let it go on the way it is, rather than making any promises or commitments.”
Well, all we can say is Malaika and Georgia proved to be mature ladies and they both handled the situation quite well. What do you guys have to say on this? Do let us know in the comments section below!
