Actor Arbaaz Khan and his wife Malaika Arora separated after 18 years of marriage and the two remained reconciled with each other. Meanwhile, speculations and assumptions were made about their split.
 
Speculations were rife that Malaika’s extra marital relationship with actor Arjun Kapoor led to their split, but the news turned out to be untrue. There were also rumours of Arbaaz dating a foreigner, but the actor never confirmed any news of it. Amid everything, Arbaaz kept his personal life hidden from the prying eyes of the media.
 
Now, the actor has finally broken his silence. In an interview to a leading daily, Arbaaz spoke about his relationship but did not reveal the details about his new girlfriend . “I am dating, yes. But we are not… As of now, there is still a long way to go,” the Dabangg actor said on being asked about his relationship status. When inquired whether he was dating the woman in his Instagram pictures, the actor said, “Which one? If you are talking about the one in Yellow, she is just a friend. She is somebody who I meet when I go to Goa. She owns a restaurant.” Is she a Romanian? “No, that’s another girl — Alexandria. That’s my friend,” Arbaaz confirmed.
 
Arbaaz shares a cordial relationship with his estranged wife Malaika. Recently, the duo were spotted at Malaika’s mother’s birthday party. When asked to comment on it, the actor said, “My association with Malaika’s family is as long as my association with Malaika. We have a child together, and there are the grandparents, uncles and aunts. And whatever the reasons for our parting, they have never influenced our equations with the families. They have kept it to themselves as this is the personal decision between the two of us. They have not asked us to get back together."
