Arbaaz Khan, a Bollywood actor-turned-director, celebrated his 54th birthday today (August 04). Arbaaz Khan made his Bollywood debut in the 1996 film Daraar, alongside Juni Chawala and Rishi Kapoor. He won the Filmfare Best Villain Award for his performance in the film.
Later, he appeared in a number of multi-starrer hit films, including Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya (1998) and Garv: Pride and Honor (2004), in which he co-starred with his brother Salman Khan.
However, he was not as successful in acting as his brother Salman Khan, so in 2010, he became a filmmaker and produced Dabangg, which starred Salman Khan. Arbaaz Khan Productions is his own production company. Dabangg was a huge success, and he went on to make Dabangg 2, 3, and 4.
Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora are one of Bollywood’s most popular couples; however, they divorced after 17 years of marriage. On December 12, 1998, Malaika Arora and Arbaaz Khan married in Christian and Muslim traditions.
In 2002, after four years of marriage, the couple was blessed with a baby boy named Arhaan. Their divorce was finalised in 2017, but the two remain friendly and co-parent their son, Arhaan. Returning to their love storey, Arbaaz Khan and Malaika first met while shooting for a coffee brand, where they had to engage in a passionate romance.
Their onscreen chemistry had always captured the spotlight, making them one of Bollywood’s most adored couples. They were seen everywhere, from performing in music albums to hosting award ceremonies to appearing in TV commercials.
The MR Coffee advertisement was their most-watched ad. Malaika and Arbaaz took a risk in the advertisement, where they had to make love onscreen. The tagline of the product was ‘real pleasure can’t come in an instant’.
Despite the fact that their marriage ended in divorce, Arbaaz still recommends marriage to others. “Naturally, I would. This tradition has existed for hundreds of thousands of years. It’s as if knowing you’re going to die doesn’t stop you from living. Of course, times have changed; even in the past, people did not marry.”
Arbaaz is currently dating model Giorgia Andriani, while Malaika is dating Arjun Kapoor.
