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 told a leading daily.
