"Somewhere, it was an example of sorts for a lot of other women. It never was a hindrance. I'm proof of that. Not in any way has it come in the choices that I've made. Being married, or when I was married, or when I decided to have a child, I don't think any of it had any bearing on my professional life. People around me had a lot more to say, but it didn't have any bearing on my professional life."
Malaika shares a beautiful bond with her son, Arhaan and her pooch, Casper. In an interview with Neha Dhupia for her show, No Filter Neha, she had adorably revealed her feelings. She shared that if you are an animal lover, they become your family, and her family is her baby, Casper. She had added that her son always says that you love their pooch more than me. Malaika had also said:
"He keeps asking me, 'Mumma you love Casper or me?' I say I have two boys and its both of you and I love you both equally. He keeps saying that 'Mom, can you not be diplomatic and choose me and say no. You're my number 1.' I'm like I can't say that. Arhaan is everything but my Casper is also my everything. The kind of unconditional love that. I can't believe we're sitting and talking about my pet here, but yeah it's just unconditional love."
