Amrita said, “It had been so long since all of us spent time together. We all have been busy working on our films and shows, and we hardly get to meet. And, even if we did meet, it was for never for more than a few hours. So, when Malaika told me that she and Arbaaz were heading to Goa, Shakeel and I also found the perfect reason to spend some family time together. And yes, all of us not only had a mini-vacation but got a little closer as a family too!”
