Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khanâ€™s announcement to part ways in 2017 after being married for 18 years came as a shocker for all of us. Itâ€™s been two years since their split and it seems the two have moved on and found love again. If Malaika is in a relationship with Arjun Kapoor, Arbaaz is painting the town red with girlfriend Giorgia Andriani.
Malaika recently appeared on Anupama Chopraâ€™s web show where she was asked about the split. "Divorce is a huge step and it gave me a sense of freedom because of the sense of being able to make a choice in life. A choice which is not applauded by too many people. People look down at you asking 'Why are you doing this?' 'Think about the consequences',â€™â€™ she said.

Malaika added that she was happy with the choice she made. "I could make a choice which I stand by. I was not under any duress. I am happy about the fact that it does give you that freedom to move on, to make new choices, to make new decisions, to go out in the world with your head held high without feeling the past baggage that was there. Eventually, everyone probably wants to be in a relationship or move on or find love again. Nobody wants to be alone and single for the rest of their life. Irrespective of what everyone said around me, I am glad that I made this choice on my own," she added.
Arbaaz also recently opened up on the recent conflicts in his life post-divorce. Talking about the same, he had said, "There was a time when I needed to be worried and now it's over. Whether you forget or forgive, whatever scenario you may choose, you have to move on. Look, if you forget then you have forgiven as well. But, if you forgive, you may have not forgotten it but at least you have forgiven. Choose whatever works for you."
On the work front, Arbaaz is returning with Dabangg 3. The film is set to go on floors soon.
