When Arbaaz Khan split up with Malaika Arora, his wife of 18 years, people reacted with shock and awe. But since then, he has been grabbing headlines for a different reason, and a good one at that. Arbaaz and Malaika have been teaching us how to be friends with your ex. In a recent interview with Deccan Chronicle, Arbaaz acknowledged that the former couple has been able to keep things smooth because they are friends first.“We are friends. We have lived together for more than 18 years. Malaika is like family to us even after separation. We have a son together. We are responsible for him," the Tera Intezaar director said.
Arbaaz was recently spotted partying with a mysterious girl in Goa, giving rise to rumours of a relationship. Asked if he has plans of walking down the aisle again, Arbaaz said he is too busy currently with his professional commitments to think of marriage. "No, not really. I am busy producing films, which is making me happy. As a producer, I have been successful with Dabangg and Dolly Ki Doli. Next year, Dabangg 3 will go on floors. I have no time to think about a second marriage at all," he said.
So, do all these link-up rumours bother him? “Yaar, she is a very old friend of mine. I have no romantic inclinations towards her. I am sure you will get to hear more such stories about me," he signed off with a laugh.
