Malaika Arora recently spoke about her separation from Arbaaz Khan in 2016 and their eventual divorce in 2017. She called it the ‘lowest phase of her life’ and added that yoga helped her deal with the ‘upheavel.’
Malaika said a lot of thoughts were going through her mind, including how society would react and how her 19-year-old son Arhaan would react to her split from his father, Arbaaz. She said that she realized very soon that she had to be firm and clear in her decision as it would impact others around her.
She said, “Thoughts went through my head. I think that probably for me was my lowest in life because it was such a huge upheaval in my life and such a change for me to deal with. It was not just me personally, there was family involved, there was my kid involved, there were so many other aspects involved.”
Malaika said that she realized that her decision will impact the lives of the people whom she loves so there was no room for indecisiveness or ‘wavering’. “I can’t be like that because like I said, my decision was going to impact all the lives around me,” the actress said.
She further said that the decision to separate was a mutual one. “As a couple, as husband and wife, we together decided that this was what was best. But yes, it was definitely the most difficult, the lowest phase in my life where I probably did turn to a lot of aspects.”
