In a conversation with Vogue India, Imran Khan revealed that he has been involved with Lekha for some time now. The actor also revealed that he has been separated from Avantika since 2019. Elaborating on the same, Imran said:

“I’ve been out of the room for a very long time. In my absence, it has been easy to speak about me. The speculation that I’m romantically involved with Lekha Washington is true. I’m divorced and have been separated since February 2019.”


In the same interview, Imran also spoke about Lekha being called a homewrecker, when it wasn’t her fault at all. Revealing how he came close to Lekha during the lockdown, Imran shared:

“There’s this narrative of Lekha being a homewrecker, which infuriates me because not only is it misogynistic but it also takes away my agency as an individual. Lekha and I grew close during the lockdown, a year and a half after I had been separated from Avantika and almost a year after she had separated from her partner, not husband as it has been widely reported.”
