From being childhood sweethearts to getting married, Imran Khan and Avantika Malik were one couple whose love story looked straight out of a fairytale. However, they have been in the news for quite some time now, and not for the right reasons. The couple, who tied the knot in 2011, has reportedly been going through a rough phase and rumours about their divorce began when Avantika moved out of Imran’s house last year along with their daughter Imara.
While Imran hasn’t been too active on social media for the past few years, Avantika, who is currently at her parents’ house, has been posting actively every now and then. Amidst the rumours of divorce, she has yet again posted a cryptic message on her Instagram story about “healing”. She wrote, “Sit with it. Instead of drinking it away, smoking it away, sleeping it away, eating it away, f***ing it away, running from it. Sit with it. Healing happens by feeling.” While sharing the same, she wrote, “I am healing.” Take a look!
Besides this, she made headlines when she posted a “serious truth bomb” on her Instagram, advising people to choose the things that are worth working on. Her post read, “Marriage is hard. Divorce is hard. Choose your hard. Obesity is hard. Being fit is hard. Choose your hard. Being in debt is hard. Being financially disciplined is hard. Choose your hard. Communication is hard. Not communicating is hard. Choose your hard. Life will never be easy. It will always be hard. But we can choose our hard. Pick wisely.”
Earlier, Avantika had shared a post about abandonment and self-worth. It said, “I hope you give yourself permission to believe that you are not defined by a person’s inability to love you, or by a person’s inability to choose you...I hope you do not neglect or question yourself even though they did. I hope you remember to love yourself better than they could.”
Meanwhile, Imran, who was last seen in Katti Batti, alongside Kangana Ranaut in 2015, has quit acting. His friend of 18 years and actor Akshay Oberoi confirmed the news and said, “My best friend in Bollywood is Imran Khan, who is no longer an actor because he has quit acting.”
Coming back to Imran and Avantika, neither of them has commented on the current status of their relationship, however, the latter’s mother has quashed the divorce rumours. “We all read the news and let me tell you that there’s no such thing. There are some differences, which will be sorted anyway, said Avantika’s mother, Vandana Malik.
Well, here's wishing Imran and Avantika the best!
