Actress Malaika Arora has finally opened up on her divorce with actor Arbaaz Khan. The two were in a happy marriage until they decided to get separated in the year 2017. The duo announced that there were irreconcilable differences between the two, therefore, they decided to part ways. They have a son named Arhaan Khan.
Now, on a chat show, hosted by her good friend and actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, Malaika answered what really led her to end her 19 years of marriage with Arbaaz. Getting candid, Malaika explained that they weren’t able to keep each other happy and often ended up upsetting people around them. She said, “We eventually did think about a lot of things and weighed every single pro and con. And then we decided, it’s better off that we move our separate ways because we’d just be better people. Because we were two people in a situation making each other extremely unhappy which was impacting everybody else’s life around us.”
Malaika then went to reveal how life gets difficult for a woman after divorce. She told Kareena, “It’s the biggest disparity there is among all the other disparities there are which women have to face.”
