During the conversation, Malaika mentioned how her family never wanted her to go ahead with her decision to get a divorce from Arbaaz. Elaborating more on it, she mentioned:

“I think, sab ki pehli yehi raai hai ki mat karna. Koi aapko nahi kahega ki, ‘Haan, haan, please jayiye, kariye.’ That’s the first thing, ki aap soch samajh ke yeh decision lena. I went through the same thing.”

Further,  Malaika recalled how her family asked her about her decision even the night before her divorce from Arbaaz. However, the fashionista mentioned that her family always felt proud after she firmly made her decision and called her a 'strong woman', giving her immense strength to be adamant about her decision. She added:

“Even the night before I got divorced, I had my family sit with me and ask me yet again, ‘Are you sure? Are you 100 per cent about your decision?’ These are the people who worry and care so they will definitely say that. Everybody said, ‘If this is the decision that you’re making, then we’re really proud of you and in our eyes, you are a strong woman.’ So for me, that kind of gave me that extra strength that I needed.”

He said, “The nation wants to know when are you getting married mother? I want an exact date, a venue, a destination and to whom.” However, refusing to reveal her wedding plans, Malaika said, “I’m better off eating a mirchi. I can’t answer that. I don’t know have an answer to it. I think I’m living my best life now.” Well, netizens are joining the dots to speculate that it was Malaika's probable hint about her breakup with Arjun.
