The Tinseltown is a place full of uncertainties and you never know whose marital life will shatter down like a house of cards. As much ecstatic we become on hearing about a new affair in Bollywood, so much disheartened we are left on hearing news about a couple's divorce. And yesterday, on May 21, 2019, we all became extremely sad when we read the reports that Imran Khan and Avantika Malik's marital paradise is crumbling.

Imran Khan and Avantika Malik, who got married on January 10, 2011, are reportedly going to head for a divorce soon. The news broke our hearts when we learnt that the two have already started living separately, and these days, Avantika is putting up with her parents, with their daughter, Imara.
As per a report, “Avantika allegedly left 24, Pali Hill, Imran’s residence, a while ago with Imara. It is being said that she is currently staying with her family.” And now, Avantika Malik's mother, Vandana Malik has come out in the open to comment on her daughter's divorce with Imran Khan. She told a media portal, "We all read the news and let me tell you that there is no such thing. There are some differences Imran and Avantika, which will be sorted anyway." And when she was asked if they are going to take divorce soon, she refuted the reports and said, "Absolutely not."
Avantika Malik has also dropped Imran Khan's surname from her own name on her Instagram handle. Earlier, she was Avantika Malik Khan and now she has changed her name to simply, Avantika Malik. Take a look:
Imran Khan's Instagram handle has no posts yet but his wifey, Avantika Malik is quite active on the picture sharing platform. Recently, she shared a post through which we can decipher that there is some trouble in her life for sure. Her post could be read as, "One morning she woke up different. Done with trying to figure out who was with her, against her, or walking down the middle because they didn't have the guts to pick a side. She was done with anything that didn't bring her peace. She realized that opinions were a dime a dozen, validation was for parking, and loyalty wasn't a word but a lifestyle. It was this day that her life changed. And not because of a man or a job but because she realized that life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket."

Imran and Avantika have one kid together, a baby girl by the name of Imara Malik Khan. On June 09, 2018, Imara had turned 4 and the doting mommy had shared the birthday girl's photos and beautifully captioned them as, "Happy 4th birthday to the love of my life, my heart, my baby!! You saved my life in more ways than you will ever know. May you soar high and be surrounded by this much love your whole life. I love you, my baby girl, #sheisaprincessandsheknowsit."
In an earlier interview, Avantika Malik had shared the nicest words about her hubby, Imran Khan and gave him the credit that he hasn't changed one bit in all these years. She had revealed, “He's fantastic. He's the best person to live with because he is able to be with you and be supportive, and also gives you tremendous space. He really looks after me, I have to give him that. I am an ordinary girl in love with a boy who happens to be a movie star. I just feel like I fell in love with this boy 10 years ago, he was a 19-20 then, and though he's grown tremendously in many ways, his core being is still the same. I give Imran a lot of credit because he hasn't changed in any way. Except that he's more confident as he knows what he's achieved.”
Talking about his and Avantika's love story, Imran had once said, “It makes me angrier than any other human being. We fight a lot, but that’s how relationships are meant to be. They’re never perfect but you still stay put if they nourish you in some way, and if you are getting something valuable from them.” He had further added, “Different people have different ways to make a relationship work. Find out what works for you and your partner.”
Imran Khan, who is constantly surrounded by beautiful women around him, was asked in an interview as to how does he resist the temptation of falling for one of them. He had shared, "Getting attracted to my co-stars would be purely sexual. And sex doesn’t attract me. I’m at a stage in life where a relationship stretches far beyond physical appeal. I have been with Avantika for 12 years now and I am happy with her." (Suggested Read: Kapil Sharma And Ginni Chatrath To Welcome Their First Baby After 5 Months Of Marriage)
