It was in 2016 when the 'IT' couple of the glamour world, Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora Khan had announced the news of their separation after 18 years of togetherness. Malaika had dropped 'Khan' from her surname, and the duo was granted divorce in 2017. After the divorce, Malaika was given custody of their son, Arhaan Khan.
Even after their separation, Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan share a cordial relationship with each other. The duo has moved on in their lives as Malaika is dating actor, Arjun Kapoor while Arbaaz is in a steady relationship with actress, Giorgia Andriani. In a recent interview, Arbaaz shared why he doesn't like Giorgia being called his 'girlfriend' or 'bae'.
Talking to Bollywood Bubble, the handsome actor, Arbaaz, stated that Giorgia has her own identity and people should stop referring to her as his girlfriend. In his words, "First and foremost, she should be treated as an individual. It's very unfortunate, and I'm not going to name those influencers who constantly write 'Arbaaz Khan's bae'. She has an identity."
Arbaaz further compared the situation with him being referred to as Salim Khan's son or Salman Khan's brother and stated, "You can't keep calling her 'Arbaaz Khan's girlfriend' or 'Arbaaz Khan's bae'. You shouldn't be doing that. That isn't her 'claim to fame'. She just happens to be presently in my life, and fair enough, but that's not her identity. It's like when you write about me and call me 'Salim Khan's son' or 'Salman Khan's brother'. Why? Why would you do that beyond a point? Everybody has to be given their own space and identity. And she would like that."
Despite ending their long marriage and moving on in their lives, Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan have never washed their dirty linen in public. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Arbaaz had revealed the reason behind his divorce from Malaika. Talking about why he felt that divorce was the only solution, Arbaaz had stated that when a couple has a child, divorce is a very difficult but necessary step. Arbaaz and Malaika’s relationship had come to a point where the divorce was the only way to go about making their equation as okay as possible.
In 2020, there were speculations about Arbaaz and Giorgia's wedding, and in an interview with the Mumbai Mirror, the actor had addressed the same. Throwing light on his wedding rumours, Arbaaz had stated, "There has been a lot of buzz around his personal life, with reports suggesting that girlfriend and he will tie the knot next year? "Who says that? My driver? My aunt? My brother? My girlfriend? My best friend? I won’t respond to questions based on hearsay. When I get engaged or married, dhol peet ke bolunga."
