The paparazzi spotted the couple along with Joyce and Amrita Arora, Malaika's sister. However, instead of avoiding the shutterbugs, they stood and posed for the camera.

This is the first time Malaika and Arbaaz have seen together at a party, post-separation, at least not one which is a huge family gathering.

Speaking about her separation from ex-wife Malaika, Arbaaz was recently d by Times of India as saying, "Malaika Arora and I did attempt to get back for a long time, but unfortunately, we couldn't find middle ground."

Meanwhile, Arbaaz's latest film Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai has released today. The drama film also stars Manjari Phadnis and Ashutosh Rana.
