Malaika Arora has said that everyone deserves a second chance to love, and people should deal with it with an open mind. In India, for a woman to take a second chance in love is still a taboo, she added. “It is a taboo is because there are a situations and issues that need to be tackled with in our country. However, I think the issue needs to be looked at with an open mind,” she told IANS.

The actor said that people should be a little more sensitive. “People shouldn’t be so harsh and negative about things.

“I think it is very important to be inclusive. When I talk of second chances, I am talking about making the most of second chances. I think everybody should be given a second chance”, Malaika said.

Talking about feeling suffocated always being under the public glare, she says, “It is part of being in the public eye, of being in this business. I think the sooner you make peace with it, the better things works out for you. I think all the actors are comfortable with it now”, Malaika added.

With 9.2 million followers on Instagram, Malaika Arora is very active on the social platform. Despite that, she is trolled by people because of her dressing style, her age-gap with Arjun Kapoor and more.

“One should not give importance to trolls, because if you pay heed to them you just fuel trolling. At the end of the day we have something called the media to project everything that needs to be out there. I do not give trolling or negativity any importance”.

Chaiyya Chaiyya in Dil Se.., which made Malaika very popular, gave her the identity of Bollywood’s Chhaiyya Chaiyya Girl. “I am absolutely fine with it (the Chaiyya Chaiyya Girl tag) because I think that’s what gave me my identity. I can say I was part of one of the most iconic songs of all time,” she said.
