Some of the couples in the industry are considered solid together and when we find out they are going their separate ways, it comes as a shock. That was precisely the case when the news of Malaika Arora Khan and Arbaaz Khan’s separation came out.
After 18 years of marriage, the couple opened up about separation in March and since then, there has been a lot of speculation regarding the reason behind their split. Reports suggested that the budding relationship between Arjun Kapoor and Malaika led to the rift.
The actors have been spotted together every now and then. Arjun is often seen leaving Malaika’s flat at Tuscany Heights in Mumbai late at night. Malaika has been living in the apartment since her separation from Arbaaz. However, after staying mum on the issue for a long time, Malaika during an interview to a magazine has finally opened up about the rumours.
A report in DNA quotes Malaika as saying that friendship is often misconstrued, “Arjun is a very good friend of mine. But people give a very different meaning to it, which isn’t true.” Even while filing their mutual separation in March, the couple had agreed that their decision is not because of a third person.
