Imran Khan, who marked his Bollywood debut on a positive note with the film Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na, has been keeping a low profile since last few years. The actor has been going through a rough patch on both personal and professional front. Also, the rumours of Imran Khan and his wife Avantika Malik contemplating divorce has been doing the rounds. It is worth mentioning here that the couple is already living separately.
Yes, you read it right. Avantika is staying separately with her daughter. And now, it is said that the reason behind the tiff between Imran Khan and his wife Avantika Malik is actor’s professional failure. Notably, Imran was last seen in ‘Katti Batti‘ that released in 2015.
In a report, Pinkvilla quoted a source close to Imran Khan and his wife Avantika Malik who revealed the reason behind their troubled relationship. “Imran has not faced much luck as an actor. After ‘Katti Batti’ failed, offers started drying up and soon enough, he was left with no work. It’s been four years that the actor is at home, doing absolutely nothing. He wanted to turn a director but that also has not taken shape the way he envisioned. He just did a small short with Dharma 2.0 and that’s it,” the source said.
Pinkvilla report also indicated that the lack of work made Imran irritable. Imran’s financial condition worsened terribly and that led to Avantika seeking her family’s support. “Imran and Avantika would constantly bicker over trivial things,” the source added.
The source further said, “Avantika couldn’t take it anymore and realised that all these regular tiffs and fights were affecting their child Imaara. They tried various ways to reconcile but to no avail. Both Imran and Avantika were fuming and they decided to take some time off their marriage and she moved out with the kid.”
