Imran Khan and his former wife, Avantika Malik, split up back in 2019. They've got a daughter named Imara who's 10 years old now. Imran Khan mentioned in a recent chat with Hindustan Times that he's taking care of Imara himself, without hiring a nanny. He also mentioned that he and Avantika share custody of Imara.


Imran Khan opens up about co-parenting


Imran Khan shared, "I do all of the stuff for Imara without any nanny. I drive her to school myself in the morning. I pick her up. The limited amount of cooking that I can do, I do for her. I put her to bed. And that also is something that I was very conscious… rather than going off and trying to act in movies while I'm depressed." 


He added, "I was like, forget that. The most important thing is she should have the memory and the experience that in my childhood, my dad was the one who would drive me to school.”

Imran talked about his divorce with Avantika, saying, "My daughter is about to be 10 years old. We split custody. I have her with me from Thursday to Sunday. So we split the week. It's all settled and sorted. I and Avantika are legally divorced. Papers are signed. It's been a couple of years now. Again, I just didn't consider that it was anyone's business to speak of.” 

Currently, Imran is in a rumoured relationship with Lekha Washington.

Why was Imran Khan in the news recently?

Bollywood actor Imran Khan, who is known for his works in 'Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na', 'Delhi Belly', 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara', among others, will soon return to the cinematic front after a long hiatus. He recently opened up on where the entertainment industry is heading with its content and shared that he doesn’t want to play a character that is violent and solves problems with guns. 

Imran told Film Companion, “I have a sense about where cinema is these days. There is a glamourization and a fetishization and sexualisation of violence that makes me uncomfortable. There is a way to portray violence. This is not a morality thing. Violence and action are… it is a language in cinema but when we communicate it, when we portray it in films, there is a way to do it where you feel the weight of it.”
