It was a heart breaking moment when Bollywood’s most beloved couple Arbaaz and Malaika Arora Khan issued a joint statement announcing their separation, earlier this year.
Now reports are doing the rounds that the estranged couple have reportedly filed for divorce in Bandra family court in Mumbai.
As reported by Mid-day, both Arbaaz and Malaika reached the Bandra family court with their respective lawyers.
Malaika and Arbaaz have been married for 17 years and soon after their separation, Malaika had moved out of Khan house with their son Arhaan.
Despite their separation, the couple has often been spotted together at various occasions.
The couple recently celebrated their son Arhaan’s birthday together. Refuting all the rumors, the couple issued a statement, calling for privacy.
“We have maintained a dignified silence till now but it is causing us too much confusion and is disturbing for our families," they said. "To put all of the speculation to rest, we are giving out this statement. People claiming to be our friends and sources have been speaking on our behalf giving out wrong, malicious information. They have maligned us for long and we have kept quiet and not said a word as it's a personal matter between us. We have got a child and our families are involved, but just because we have not said anything till now, it doesn't give anybody the license to speculate on any rubbish about us.”
