Hindi film actor Malaika Arora-Khan has dropped “Khan” from her surname. She had suffixed “Khan” to her surname after her marriage to actor Arbaaz Khan, the brother of Hindi film industry’s superstar Salman Khan. Malaika and Arbaaz had divorced in May 2017 but she continued to use full name with “Khan” appended to her family name in public and in her social media accounts.
Malaika shot to fame with her popular dance number “Chal Chaiyya Chaiyya” in the 1998 super hit Hindi film “Dil se”.
Malaika Arora announced the riddance of Khan from her surname by updating her Instagram account. It’s now malaikaaroraofficial. Malaika had been using Khan in her social media accounts even after a year of her divorce with Arbaaz Khan.
The film industry’s grapevine in Mumbai is rife with talks that Malaika is dating another actor Arjun Kapoor. The two have often been spotted together at public functions.
