Once madly in love, this Bollywood Jodi has decided to call it quits. The popular item girl of Bollywood and once a model, Malaika Arora and actor, director and producer Arbaaz Khan have decided to legally parts ways. Reportedly, the divorce application is by mutual consent.
Today was the first hearing after they filed for a divorce petition in Bandra Family Court. The two arrived at the family court around 11 in the morning for the first session of mandatory counseling which will go on for a period of 6 months.
Malaika and Arbaaz have been married for over 17 years and have 13 years old son, Arhaan.
The news of tensions and rifts between them started making the rounds among members of Bollywood fraternity all of a sudden. Despite several efforts by Salman Khan to get his brother and sister in law together, it had hit the rock bottom for Malaika and she decided to separate from Arbaaz and soon filed for a divorce plea.
The reason for separation has never been openly spoken about. But there were rumours of all kinds speculating the cause of the rift between the two. One of the reasons was that she was unhappy with Arbaaz’s financial stability and she has been single-handedly looking after her son’s expenses and is also paying for his exorbitant school fees. The other reason stated was the apparent closeness of Malaika with Arjun Kapoor.
There has been no confirmation on the reason, but the only confirmation is that the two have decided to call it end their marriage for good.
