For the past few days now, there have been reports of things going haywire in Imran Khan and Avantika Malik's paradise. Reportedly, they have separated from each other, and are considering divorce. However, when Imran Khan was spotted at an event in Mumbai, he was asked about the authenticity of this piece of news, and this is how he reacted. Imran Khan cross-questioned the journalists present there that how could they ask such a question at an event? However, he maintained his calm and walked away with a smile on his face. 

A few days ago, Avantika's mother, Vandana Malik was asked about her daughter's married life by and this is what she said, "We all (Vandana, Avantika and Imran) read the news and let me tell you that there's no such thing. There are some differences (between the husband and wife), which will be sorted anyway." When the entertainment portal prodded if there was a probable divorce in the process, she said, "Absolutely not."
