In a recent conversation with ETimes, Malaika Arora opened up about the negativity she receives on social media. He even talked about society’s double standards. Talking about the same, Malaika said that today women have to stand up for themselves and speak their minds. Elaborating further, Malaika mentioned that even today, divorced women are looked down upon and this needs to change. In his words:
“I think women today should be able to stand up and say the things that you feel strongly about and show that it’s okay. It’s okay to be, to find, to live the life that I am. I mean in the era and today’s age. Divorced women, single mothers, etc., are actually looked down upon and it’s not much… you know, when I say looked down upon there’s always a lot of criticism. There’s someone or the other who has some kind of comment and I think we need to change that. And then I want to change if I can, in my little one.”
Earlier, in an interview with Masala magazine, Malaika had opened up about her life after her split from ex-husband, Arbaaz Khan. Talking about the same, she revealed that she had gone through the lowest phase of her life and had to think about the reactions she would get from the society, her son, Arhaan and many more. The actress had said:
“I went through my personal struggles. I went through separation, I went through having to deal with family pressures, I went through having to deal with how my child would do, how I would do it, what society would be like , how would I do it, I’ll be able to work, I’ll be able to just be myself. All these thoughts went through my head. I think it was probably my lowest point in my life because it was such a huge upheaval in my life and a such a big change for me. It wasn’t just me personally, there was the family involved, there was my son involved, there were many other aspects involved.”
