Amidst swirling rumours of an impending divorce, it has now become clear that Avantika Malik, Imran Khan's wife has dropped Khan from her name. Though her Instagram handle still says that she is Khan but she has edited her username to her maiden name. Her user name was Avantika Malik Khan. A source told DNA After Hrs that the couple, after eight years of dating, and eight more years of marriage, have hit a rough patch. Imran Khan and Avantika Malik reportedly have irreconcilable differences. The source mentioned, “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.”
Here is the screenshot of Avanitka Malik's instagram.
Apparently, the families are trying to sort out things between Imran Khan and Avantika Malik. The couple had dated for eight years before tying the knot in 2011. They had even lived together in Los Angeles. Their daughter Imara was born in 2014. When asked about this, Vandana Malik, Avantika’s mother, confirmed to In.com that there were indeed problems between the couple, but they were working on it. "We all (Vandana, Avantika and Imran) read the news and let me tell you that there is no such thing. There are some differences (between the husband and wife), which will be sorted anyway. On whether they are considering divorce as an option, Vandana said, "Absolutely not."
However, the rumours gained ground when it was reported that Avantika has left their Pali hill residence along with her daughter Imara. Several reports suggest that the lack of a good career may have played a role in the problems the couple is facing. Despite having a promising start in Bollywood with the film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Imran’s career could not take off and he faced several duds at the box office, including his last film Katti Batti with Kangana Ranaut.
