Arbaaz opens up about ringing in New Year with ex-wife Malaika

Arbaaz Khan splits with wife Malaika Arora after 18 years of marriage. They have filed for divorce and will get officially divorced in May this year. Though separated, Maliaka and Arbaaz maintained a cordial relationship. They rang in New Year together with Malaika and her family in Goa and had a blast with the gang.

Many stories are being surfaced on media when Arbaaz and Malaika were captured in one frame. It was buzzed that the couple are thinking to give their relationship a last chance and would get back together. However, Arbaaz cleared the air of their patch-up. He said that since they separated cordially, they are quite good with each other.

Arbaaz added that he had a son with Malaika and they have a responsibility towards their teenager son, Arhaan.  

Arbaaz told Deccan Chronicle that they are comfortable with each other since they parted ways amicably. He said, "Just because we're separating, doesn't mean we have to be worried about each other's equations. I have a child with her, so we have to have a cordial and a great relationship. We're very amicable with the split we had. I'm close to her side of the family, something that you can all see. My association with her family has been that of over 21 years, which is almost like a lifetime. I have a growing up child, so there's a lot of parenting responsibilities and duties we have to do and it can only happen if the atmosphere between the two of us is very conducive and normal. We both are extremely mature and can handle this."

Arbaaz and Malaika announced separation last year. They got married in 1997, and have a 14-year-old son, Arhaan.
