Imran Khan's wife Avantika Malik has become the latest victim of dengue but is said to be stable

It looks like dengue went calling on Imran Khan’s doors as well. The actor’s wife Avantika Malik has contracted the fever but is said to be stable. According to Imran, the intensity of the fever wasn’t too overwhelming, allowing Avantika to rest at their Bandra home instead of being rushed to the hospital.

Ranveer Singh had a rather major health scare after he contracted dengue during his shoot schedule in Durgapur.

Avantika incidentally had been running a temperature for almost four days before she opted for a blood test. However, it wasn’t as bad as the family had initially expected.

Says Imran, “We were lucky as it wasn't anything major. She got a fever last week and we thought it was a regular viral. Later, it was diagnosed as dengue.”

The actor, who has to go back to work to promote his next film, 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein' from tomorrow, is relieved at his wife’s health getting better. Bandra has been witnessing a rising number of dengue cases recently.
