The ever-so-gorgeous, Malaika Arora tied the knot with actor, Arbaaz Khan in the year 1998, but the duo parted ways in 2016 after 18 years of marital bliss. They are blessed with a son, Arhaan Khan, whom they co-parent. In the first episode of her reality show, Moving In With Malaika, Malaika Arora opened up about her divorce from her ex-hubby, Arbaaz Khan, and her current relationship with her actor-boyfriend, Arjun Kapoor.
When Malaika's close friend, Farah Khan asked the actress about her future plans with Arjun Kapoor and enquired if she is planning to tie the knot again and have more kids, Malaika shared that she doesn't know what the future holds for her. However, she heaped praises on her boyfriend and shared that they often discuss the same with each other. Adding that Arjun keeps her happy, she said:
“I don’t know what the future holds for me. Humne iss baare mein baat ki hai. Aap apne partner se aisi cheezon ke baare mein baat karte hai. Aaj jo insaan meri zindagi mein hai, woh mujhe khush rakhta hai. I don't care iske baare mein duniya kya sochti hai."
Further in the conversation, Malaika also mentioned that she does not feel insecure about getting married again because of her previous marriage. She also shared that she has a better person in this relationship, who makes her happy. Stating that she made every decision in her life to be happy, the actress said:
“I don’t feel insecure. Just because I have been through a divorce or something, I am not bitter. I have a lot to feel, and I think I have a better person in a relationship. Whatever choices or decisions I made, I made it to purely be happy, and at the end of the day, this man in my life makes me happy."
Talking about her equation with her boyfriend, Arjun Kapoor, Malaika revealed that she's a hardcore romantic and that she's in a happy relationship. Sharing that she and Arjun make each other happy, she added that they are growing and enjoying their relationship together. She called Arjun her friend and biggest critic and added:
“I am a hardcore romantic. I just want to be in a relationship where I can make my partner happy and where we can be happy together, where we can actually grow together and enjoy life together. He is my friend. He is my biggest critic, my partner."
When Farah asked Malaika how she deals with times when people talk about her relationship, Malaika responded that it is not an easy task for her. Talking about the hypocrisy of the world, the actress added that even her close ones don't miss a chance to throw dirt on her. In her words:
“It's not been easy, and face a lot of it on daily basis, this old thing about older women. A man on the other hand dating a 20-year-old, a 30-year-old woman is applauded. He's made to feel that he is the king of the world...A lot of it I've also got from my own near and dear ones. Forget the outer circle because at the end of the day they are just privy to a ringside view.”
