While rumours of trouble in Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora Khan's marriage is doing the rounds, the latest news is that Arbaaz is trying to mend things.
The actor-producer is reaching out to his wife's closest friends and family to sort things out.
That might explain when a Dubai resident spotted Arbaaz having a good time at a restaurant in DIFC.
Surprisingly, Arbaaz was accompanied by his sister-in-law Amrita Arora and her husband Shakeel Ladak.
Amrita is celebrating her birthday in Dubai and the trio have been partying around the town.
But elder sister Malaika is missing from the celebration.
The two sisters are very attached to each other and Malaika is always by her little sister's side, but this time.
Her absence further confirms the reports of trouble in their marriage.
Malaika was also conspicuous by her absence at sister-in-law Arpita Khan Sharma's baby shower in Dubai recently.
These pictures of Arbaaz and his sister-in-law having a good time gives us hope that eventually all might turn out well between him and Malaika.

In the meantime, Arbaaz is also trying to cajole his wife and seeking help from Malaika's friends.
A few days ago, he had a chat with Karisma Kapoor, who is one of Malaika's closest friends, and asked her to speak to his wife.
Even though Karisma is going through tough times due to her divorce battle, she assured Arbaaz that she would speak to her friend soon.
Arbaaz and Malaika tied the knot in December 1998 and have a 13-year-old son Arhaan.
