After a blissful relationship of 18 years, Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan mutually ended their marriage on May 11.
Now, since the couple is officially divorced, Malaika Arora no longer wants to use the “Khan” surname.
According to a leading tabloid, Mailaika was invited as a chief guest for an event in Vadodara recently and her chair was tagged with her name on it as “Malaika Arora Khan.”
It is being reported that the actress was not comfortable with the entire situation and asked the organisers to remove the “Khan” from her name.
The organisers made the required changes and rectified the mistake. However, it’s strange that her social media handles still have her name as Malaika Arora Khan.
The couple had tied the knot in 1998 and filed for a divorce in November 2016 through mutual consent. Initially, there were rumours that they might reconcile and Arbaaz’s family wanted that too but it didn’t happen. They continue to remain on cordial terms till today.
Malaika has got the physical custody of their 14-year-old son, Arhaan, Arbaaz has been granted access to them whenever he wants.
A leading daily quoted a source saying that Malaika did not seek any alimony or property from Arbaaz.
Both Arbaaz and Malaika yesterday appeared before the family court where they met principal marriage counselor VS Athavale for five minutes and were then granted divorce by the Family Court judge.
The two had arrived together for the Justin Bieber concert which was held a day before on May 10, 2017, at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.
