21 May 2019: Imran Khan and Avantika Malik end their 8-year-old marriage?
Remember Imran Khan who made a smashing debut with Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na?
Well, if you have forgotten him, don't fret. He was himself out of limelight for quite some time.
However, recent news has suggested that not just his professional life, Imran's personal life has taken a hit too.
His wife of eight years has reportedly walked out of his house.
Details: Imran announced about his girlfriend soon after his debut
When the actor entered Bollywood, he became an instant hit due to his chocolate boy looks.
Within no time, he announced about his then-girlfriend, Avantika Malik, just like Hrithik Roshan did in 2000.
In 2011, they married in a private civil ceremony at Aamir Khan's home in Pali Hill.
Three years later, they were blessed with a daughter, whom they named Imara Malik Khan.
Separation: Avantika, her daughter are currently staying with her family
All was going well between them, but if recent reports are to be believed, the couple has parted ways due to irreconcilable differences.
"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," a source close to the couple said.
In fact, her Instagram account also gives a hint.
Reconciliation: Family members, friends trying to make things work for them
The last photo featuring Imran in Avantika's Instagram is dated last October, and is possibly from a wedding.
Some media outlets also tried to contact Imran, but he remained mum over the issue.
Meanwhile, reports also said that their family members and friends are trying to make things work between the couple.
Notably, Imran-Avantika dated for quite a while before they got married.
Relationship: Have learned a lot about myself, Imran on his relationship
The 36-year-old actor, talking about his relationship, had said, "I have learned a lot about myself and become a more balanced person."
When Imara was born, Imran gushed, "Until you have kids of your own you cannot possibly begin to understand it but it is the purest form of joy that there is."
We sincerely hope this happiness comes back to them soon.
Career: Imran was last seen in 'Katti Batti' opposite Kangana Ranaut
On the work front, Imran was last seen in Katti Batti (2015).
The film dealt with live-in relationship, and opened to mixed reviews. After that, he changed gears, and will be making his directorial debut with Mission Mars: Keep Walking India.
Avantika, daughter of Vandana Malik, CEO, CNBC-TV18, meanwhile, made her debut with serial Just Mohabbat, but didn't pursue acting as a career.
