Malaika admits co-parenting son Arhaan with Arbaaz was ‘tricky’ initially

Malaika Arora and her ex-husband Arbaaz Khan may have been divorced, but that does not stop them from coming together for their son Arhaan Khan. These two have been co-parenting their son and making sure that they are both there when their son needs them.

In a recent interview with Hello Magazine, the diva opened up about raising her son and accepted that she, along with her ex-husband, has found a balance on how to co-parent their son.

During the interview, Malaika Arora was asked about raising her son with good values and co-parenting with Arbaaz Khan. Responding to this, the diva said, “For whatever it’s worth, touch wood; we’ve found a great balance now.” She admitted that initially it was a bit tricky and stated that this is how life is. “We both knew that irrespective of everything else and what may have transpired between two adults, it should never reflect on a child, and we have figured out a very congenial way of co-parenting.”

Malaika further spoke about how she makes sure that her son, Arhaan, realizes his own privileges and learns to do things by himself. She stated that as a mother, she wanted her son to have respect for others and wanted him to do things without relying on others or the privileges he has.


She added that they have always told him that he needs to make it on his own, even if they are there as someone he can always fall back on. “To be independent in his thinking, financially and emotionally too." She stated that it's quite easy for "privileged children" to think that parents will always take care of everything. However, she added, that should not be the case. Malaika said, "No, you’ve got to do it on your own.”
