Malaika Arora: For people to point fingers and insinuate is very unfair

Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor are the new talk of tinsel town, especially now that Arora and Kapoor have made it official by posting pictures on Instagram on and since Kapoor’s birthday. While speaking to a leading daily earlier, Arora had said, “It feels amazing! When my marriage ended, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be in another relationship and was scared of being heartbroken. But I also wanted to be in love, nurture a relationship, and this new me gave me the confidence to put myself out there and take a chance. I am so glad I did!”

Recently, when another leading daily asked Arora about her divorce with Arbaaz Khan and their son, Arhaan, she said, “What transpires between two people is very personal and sacred. The two people who decide to part ways are the only ones who will know the real reasons for it. For people to point fingers and insinuate is very unfair. It’s wrong to judge. Arbaaz and I have moved on, amicably. We have to be sensitive to our child (Arhaan) and his needs. When we parted ways, I felt vulnerable, though I am not a vulnerable person. I didn’t know which direction I wanted to move into. I was just sure that I have to give my child a stable environment, and to date, it has been my number one priority.”

She further said, “Gradually, one thing led to another and now, things are how you see them today. I have to give my son a lot of credit for that. He has been very understanding and supportive of me. That was essential for me. My happiness matters the most to him and his happiness, to me. He has been instrumental in shaping my life. There were really no plans of being in another relationship, but things happened organically. We’re now in a phase of our life where we need to give our relationship that respectability by acknowledging each other’s presence.”

“I don’t listen to what people have to say about me. I just care for what my son, my family, my partner and my friends think. I was working, and taking care of Arhaan then, and I am doing that even now. The only difference is that, back then, I was married, and now I am not. What is the hoopla all about? It’s great for people who have had long-standing marriages. But I look at things differently. Something didn’t work out, but now I have a second chance at love and companionship. Second chances are hard to come by and the most amazing opportunities in life. So, why shouldn’t I or millions of other women like me take that chance?” Arora added.
