Imran Khan Recalls His Difficult Divorce From Avantika, Says 'Couldn't Get Myself Out Of Bed...'

Imran Khan's life has been not less than a film's tale with love, romance, action and separation. However, the only difference is that he had the choice to change the narrative of his life and restart it. The once superstar, who left millions in awe with the overnight success of his film, Jaane Tu Yaa Jaane Na..., left the world of acting after the failure of his 2015 film, Katti Batti. Not only this, Imran Khan also dealt with divorce from Avantika Malik, with whom he was once madly in love.

Divorce can take a toll on any person, no matter whether you are a man or a woman. It is not easy to part ways with someone with whom you have shared a major part of your life. Similarly, Imran was left broken after his divorce. During an interview with Humans Of Bombay, Imran revealed that there were days when he would not be able to get out of bed. In 2019, he was at his weakest emotionally and physically.

Imran further described that even brushing his teeth and taking a shower was a monumental ask for him. There were days when he would not even get out of bed and would stay in pyjamas with a locked door. He was quoted as saying:

"When I separated in 2019, I was at my weakest—emotionally and physically. I'd say, I would describe it as a husk of a human being. Brushing my teeth and taking a shower was a monumental task. I didn't know if I could do that. I couldn't even get myself out of bed, I would stay in my pajamas, turn the doorbell off, lock the door and just vegetate."


Imran further added that he would stand up for his daughter, as he would take care of her from Thursday to Sunday. He stated that no matter what he was facing, he had to get out. He said:

"I did have parental duties, we split custody so Thursdays to Sundays, my daughter would be with me. So on the days that she is with me, it doesn't matter how weak I feel, whatever it is, you have to get out there."

When Imran Khan opened up on the reason behind divorce from Avantika Malik

Imran Khan and Avantika Malik tied the knot in 2011, and in 2019, the couple parted ways due to irreconcilable issues. In an interview with India Today, Imran first time revealed the reason behind his divorce. The actor stated that he was going through depression at that point and he realised that his marriage wasn't working. He added that he didn't want to add fuel to the gossip fire, but he was dealing with a lot of baggage. Imran said: 

"Without going too much into that part, because I'm hesitant to add a lot of fuel to the gossip fire, but as I was dealing with all of this baggage and my internal struggle, I did find that my marriage and my relationship were not helping any of that."
