Earlier this year, Arbaaz opened up in an interview with DNA and said that there was no chance of them getting back together. He said, “I guess if that was to happen it would have happened in the first six months, or one year. It didn’t and it’s been almost three years now.”
He added, “I wouldn’t want to speak for her. I kept my option open despite us parting ways, and I gave it a little time, whether it was a year or two years before I moved on in certain ways. Even as far as dating somebody is concerned.”
