Entertainment Desk: It was in 2017 that Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan divorced. And two years since, the ex-couple has moved on in their respective lives. If Arbaaz has found love in Giorgia Andriani, Malaika is happy painting the town red with Arjun Kapoor.
Almost two years after the divorce, Malaika for the first time opened up on the topic on bestie Kareena Kapoor Khan's radio show. From talking about her unhappy marriage to taking the big decision of moving out to finally ending the 18-year-long marriage, Malaika spilled the beans on her divorce with Arbaaz Khan.
The 45-year-old diva also opened up on her son Arhaan Khan's reaction to their divorce.
"I would want to see my child in a happy environment than be subjected to an environment that is completely disruptive. With time, my child is far more accepting and far more happy. He can see that we both as individuals are far more happy than what we were in our marriage," revealed Malaika.
She added, "He did actually turn around one day and he did say that to me, 'Mom, it's good to see you happy and smiling'."
Malaika won the custody of Arhaan post the divorce, and her son is staying with her.
Malaika also said that her own happiness and the happiness of those around her was of utmost importance to her. "We 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," said the diva.
