Imran Khan's wife Avantika hints they might already be divorced, shares cryptic Insta post
After Imran Khan's estranged wife Avantika Malik shared a post on Instagram, a section of people are wondering if they got a divorce.
Avantika Malik, the estranged wife of former actor Imran Khan, has sparked divorce rumours with her recent post. Taking to her Instagram Stories, Avantika re-shared a video of singer Miley Cyrus dancing to one of her songs. The words ‘that divorce was the best thing for her’ were written on the clip. Re-posting it, Avantika wrote, "Not only her...#justsaying." (Also Read | Imran Khan spotted hand in hand with rumoured girlfriend Lekha Washington during rare public appearance)
A screenshot of Avantika's post was shared on Reddit with the caption, "Imran Khan and Avantika Malik have finalised their divorce?" A person commented, "It's better to part ways than be bitter the whole life." A comment read, "I thought they divorced a year or two back." "I always feel that anyone who posts shady s*** about their former/separated/divorced partners on social media is intolerable," wrote another person.
Avantika's post comes just over a month after Imran Khan made a rare public appearance holding hands with actor Lekha Washington. Imran, who is Aamir Khan's nephew, was spotted in Mumbai in February with Lekha sparking dating rumours. The duo had worked together in Vishal Bhardwa's Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola in 2013.
Avantika tied the knot with Imran in 2011. They are parents to a daughter, Imara. Rumours of their separation began in 2019 but neither Imran nor Avantika commented about it. Last year, it was reported that Imran and Avantika had decided to go separate ways.
Previously too, Avantika has shared posts on Instagram hinting at her personal life. In 2021, she had shared a post about feeling 'stuck' and finding comfort in 'darkest nights'. In 2020, Avantika had reposted a message about marriage and divorce, and called it a ‘truth bomb’. In another old post, she had written that she was 'healing'.
When separation rumours about Imran and Avantika first began in 2019, Avantika’s mother Vandana had rubbished the reports. She had told In.com, “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.”
Imran made his acting debut with the 2008 film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. He has also featured in many films such as Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Delhi Belly and I Hate Love Storys. He was last seen in the 2015 movie Katti Batti.
