Imran Khan’s marriage in trouble?

According to reports, Imran and Avantika have apparently taken a mutual break from their marriage.

Imran Khan was at the top of the game when he married his long-standing girlfriend Avantika Malik in 2011.He was being offered tempting leads in big-budget films, and not because he was Aamir Khan’s nephew.

Soon after the marriage and fatherhood, his career fell apart in a way that’s inexplicable, but not uncommon. It was the lull in Imran Khan’s career after his marriage that seems to have killed this beautiful couple’s togetherness.

For a while, Imran claimed he was on paternity leave, enjoying his work-free time with his newly-born daughter. After a year or so of Papa pictures in the social media, the excuses dried up. It was eminently clear to all that this not-unpromising young actor wasn’t getting any work.

A friend of the couple says, “You have to understand  that Imran has not worked  in any film since the thundering flop Katti Batti  in 2015. To simply hang around  the  house  playing Papa, attending parties with  his high-profile wife and  give an occasional response to social issues on  Twitter is  not  a  healthy way to  keep a marriage  going.”

Sources say Imran’s dead-end career has killed his marriage. The couple has apparently taken a  mutual break  from their marriage to see where it goes.

A director who has worked with Imran says over-choosiness did his career in. “You are wrong to think Imran stopped getting offers. He was getting his share of films.  But he turned them down.  He was looking for roles that would further his skills as an actor. In the bargain, he lost many assignments and  then the offers stopped coming as news spread that he  didn’t want to work.”
