Here's what Malaika Arora Khan has to say about her rumoured link up with Arjun Kapoor!

The linkup rumours started to surface when Arjun Kapoor was spotted visiting Malaika Arora Khan soon after her separation from husband Arbaaz Khan

In March this year, Malaika Arora Khan and Arbaaz Khan stunned everybody when they announced their mutual separation after 18 years of marriage.

They released a statement that stated, "The truth is, we have taken a break, but that doesn't mean people can presume, assume and speculate things of such malicious nature. We are taking out time to figure out our lives... Yes, it's true that we are separated, but where our lives go and what transpires between us, it is for us to decide. Wherever it goes from here, we will talk about it when we are ready to."

"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," it read.

They also slammed those who speculated that a third person's involvement led to their separation.

"We are not separated because of a third random person, like there were stories of a friendship between a businessman and Malaika. Nor was it about his family disapproving of her lifestyle, nor does she feel that her husband is not financially stable. She is not crying on her brother-in-law Salman's shoulders, asking him to help. They are our family, so please don't talk about them like that," they clarified.

But that was old news.

Addition of a plus one?

New developments in their saga reveal some shocking details and the addition of a someone special in Malaika's life! Yes, that's correct.

Soon after the news of their separation hit the stands, actor and close friend of the Khan'daan' Arjun Kapoor was reportedly spotted visiting Malaika at her Tuscany Heights apartments.

Khan's concentrating on co-parenting

Well, they say there is no smoke without fire, but only time will tell the reality of this controversial tale. Meanwhile, Malaika and Arbaaz are both working hard on their roles as parents, and involving themselves in their son Arhaan's life.

A recent example was when the duo decided to put their differences at bay and got together to celebrate their son's 14th birthday. In fact, the occasion saw the entire Khan family except Salman in attendance.

This was not a one off incident when the couple came together. It has been speculated that the two might actually be giving their marriage a second chance due to family pressure. No wonder then, Malaika has been seen celebrating many of the prominent festivals with her in-laws.

Well, this only goes to show that the couple are treading cautiously and working towards maintaining a cordial relationship with each other. This is, in fact, one of the best ways to move on in life after a separation.

3 ways to deal with separation

Whether a couple is going through a temporary separation or a permanent one, they are bound to feel lost, depressed and even disoriented. However, by taking time for your own self and identifying your own happiness and connecting with friends and family, one can get over a tough separation.

  • Take time to grieve: It is essential that a separated couple take sometime out to grieve the end of what may be an era for them. Regardless of the strength of your relationship, its end will lead to a sense of loss, especially during the beginning. Your heartbreak is certainly real and you must work on getting a closure by acknowledging your feelings. You may even experience physical changes like loss of appetite or excessive hunger or even pain, but it is all part of the process.
  • Take care of yourself: Remind yourself to take care of your own body by being regular with your meals and exercising and meditating. When you take care of your body and keep it healthy, it reciprocates by increasing your happiness hormones including endorphins and serotonin.
  • Ask for help: Do not hesitate to seek help from family and friends at this important juncture of your life. You will need all the support you can possibly get. It will help you feel valued and loved, the two things you need most after a separation. Your friends and family can also help you feel better about yourself and lend the confidence you need after going through this ordeal.
