Malaika Arora, a former talent show judge, is now a reality star. On the most recent episode of Moving in with Malaika, she attempted standup comedy, with mixed results. During her performance, she roasted everyone, from her sister Amrita Arora to herself.
Malaika begins her act by calling out those who are obsessed with her ‘age,’ according to a clip shared on social media by Disney+ Hotstar. She claims it’s not because she’s ‘old,’ but because she’s ageing and ‘looks like this.’ Her trolls were dubbed “Jalkukdi log (jealous people)” by her. “I have moved on, my ex has moved on, when the f will all of you move on?” she said of her divorce from ex-husband Arbaaz Khan. ”
She then turned her attention to her sister Amrita Arora. “My sister has arrived!” She’s the most amusing. “I’m the pretty one,” she declared, eliciting laughter from her audience. “She has a wealthy husband, and I… do standup,” she joked.
Malaika also mentioned her Chaiyaa Chaiyaa song, in which she danced on top of a train and made a name for herself in Bollywood, and she attributed the ease of filming the Dil Se song to being a ‘Thane girl,’ and she even wondered if any standup comedian had any plans to dance on top of a train anytime soon.
On Moving in with Malaika, Malaika has addressed her age difference with boyfriend Arjun Kapoor, her recent car accident, and even her divorce with Arbaaz Khan. “I know how much you love him. He is a wonderful person. He let me be the person I am today. I feel a lot of who I am today is also because of him because he let me be the person I am,” Farah Khan said of Arbaaz.
“We drifted. We were too young. I was very young. I think I also changed. I also wanted different things in life. Somewhere I felt that was missing in my space and I needed to move on. I felt the only way I could do that was if I could actually probably let go of certain ties. I think today we are better people. We love and respect each other for the people that we are. We have a child together.”
Moving in with Malaika airs Monday through Thursday at 8 p.m. on Disney+ Hotstar.
