The couple recently visited the Bandra family court with their lawyers for the formalities reported a leading tabloid. Malaika and Arbaaz issued a joint statement in Marchannouncing their separation while also calling for privacy. "Yes, it's true that we are separated.
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. We have maintained a dignified silence till now but it is causing us too much confusion and is disturbing for our families. To put all of the speculation to rest, we are giving out this statement. People claiming to be our friends and sources have been speaking on our behalf giving out wrong, malicious information.
They have maligned us for long and we have kept quiet and not said a word as it's a personal matter between us. 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. It was said that Arbaaz’s elder brother Salman Khan was also trying to help them out to give their marriage a second chance.
