Actor Imran Khan has been in news for all the wrong reasons. Earlier, it was reported that his wife Avantika and he had separated after eight years of marriage. It has been almost a year now and both have maintained silence over the same. Several reports claimed that the consequent fights between the couple were the reason behind their separation. Certain reports also stated that the strain in their marriage happened due to Imran’s failed career. Now, the latest reports suggest that trouble mounted in Imran and Avantika’s marriage due to a third person. According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, the actor and Lekha have been seeing each other for some time. Lekha’s husband Pablo Chatterji and Imran were close buddies but a roaring affair between the two started without anyone’s knowledge.
In fact, after Avantika moved out of the bungalow, Imran has started introducing Lekha to his circle as well. This has also brought Lekha’s marriage on the brink of a breakdown. Both the families are completely scattered at this point.”The report further claims that the Delhi Belly actor has apparently rented or bought a place near his own house, to meet his new ladylove. A neighbour said to the publication, “Lekha can be spotted going in and out of the building in the wee hours. It is very close to his own house at Pali Hill, Bandra. Imran is waiting for the divorce to come through to announce this new relationship.” The couple dated for a longtime before tying the knot in 2011. Imran and Avantika have an adorable daughter Imara Malik Khan who was born on June 9, 2014. Imran’s friend Akshay Oberoi had recently confirmed that he has quit acting. “My best friend in Bollywood is Imran Khan, who is no longer an actor because he has quit acting,” Akshay said in an interview. Imran was last seen in Katti Batti opposite Kangana Ranaut in 2015.
