Imran also addressed negative comments about Lekha on the social media. “There’s this narrative of Lekha being a homewrecker, which infuriates me because not only is it misogynistic but it also takes away my agency as an individual.” He added, “Lekha and I grew close during the lockdown, a year and a half after I had been separated from Avantika and almost a year after she had separated from her partner, not husband as it has been widely reported.”

About Avantika and Imran

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, “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 and Lekha recently attended his cousin Ira Khan’s wedding together.
