Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan have finally ended their 18-year marriage. The legal proceedings are all over, and the Bandra family court granted Malaika and Arbaaz a divorce on May 11. Coming to a dead end, Malaika no longer wants to be called a Khan. Well, we have proof.
Recently, the actress invited as a chief guest at an event in Vadodara. During this, her seat had the name plate with her full name – Malaika Arora Khan.
But looks like Malaika wasn’t happy seeing ‘Khan’ there. A few moments after the actor arrived at the venue, the ‘Khan’ was torn off from the paper and it only read ‘Malaika Arora’.
According to reports, Malaika asked the organizers to write only Malaika Arora on the name plate. However, Malaika has not yet removed her surname officially.
Though interestingly, her Instagram profile still reads as ‘MalaikaAroraKhanofficial’.
The couple, who married in 1998, had filed for divorce on mutual consent last November(2016). Where many expected the couple might reconcile over time considering they even attended the Justin Bieber concert together with their son Arhaan. However, they are maintaining this cordial relationship only so that their divorce doesn’t affect their relationship with their son.
Malaika and Arbaaz will continue to co-parent their son. While Malaika has been given his custody, Arbaaz is free to visit him whenever he wishes.
