Amid Aamir Khan-Kiran Rao divorce, superstar’s nephew Imran Khan’s estranged wife Avantika Malik shares cryptic post

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and producer Kiran Rao announced their separation on Saturday. The couple, who has been married for 15 years, share a son Azad Rao Khan together. The couple, who issued a joint statement on Saturday making the announcement, revealed that they will continue to be co-parents for their son Azad.

And ever since the couple has made the announcement that has come as a shock to their fans and the film industry, reactions from various celebrities have been pouring in. 

Meanwhile, days after Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao announced their separation, the superstar’s nephew Imran Khan’s estranged wife Avantika Malik shared a cryptic post on social media on Monday. 

In the now-deleted Instagram Story, Avantika quoted writer Junot Diaz and his saying about not running away from one’s problems. The note read, “But if these years have taught me anything it is this: You can never run away. Not ever. The only way out is in. – Junot Diaz.” 

Previously too, she has posted several notes on marriage and divorce.

Take a look at the note here:

For the unversed, Imran and Avantika were deeply in love for several years before they finally decided to tie the knot. However, there has been trouble in paradise and the news of their marriage hitting rock bottom first came out in 2019. Reportedly, the couple has been living separately for close to two years now. They have a daughter, Imara. 

While neither Imran nor Avantika have ever confirmed living separately, the latter often shares cryptic posts, quotes, thoughts on life, love, and relationships on her social media and Imran has been missing from her Instagram feed altogether.

As for Imran’s career in films, recently his friends, Akshay Oberoi and Abhinay Deo confirmed that he has quit acting while adding that he is eager to pursue direction. 

As far as Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao’s divorce is concerned, the couple on Saturday released a joint statement that read, “In these 15 beautiful years together we have shared a lifetime of experiences, joy and laughter, and our relationship has only grown in trust, respect and love. Now we would like to begin a new chapter in our lives – no longer as husband and wife, but as co-parents and family for each other.”

“We began a planned separation some time ago, and now feel comfortable to formalise this arrangement, of living separately yet sharing our lives the way an extended family does. We remain devoted parents to our son Azad, who we will nurture and raise together. We will also continue to work as collaborators on films, Paani Foundation, and other projects that we feel passionate about,” it further read. “A big thank you to our families and friends for their constant support and understanding about this evolution in our relationship, and without whom we would not have been so secure in taking this leap. We request our well wishers for good wishes and blessings, and hope that – like us – you will see this divorce not as an end, but as the start of a new journey,” the statement concluded.

The duo met on the sets of ‘Lagaan’ where Kiran worked as an assistant director. After spending some time together, the two got hitched on December 28, 2005. Aamir and Kiran welcomed their first son Azad through surrogacy in 2011. Aamir was earlier married to Reena Dutta but got divorced after 16 years of marriage in 2002. He has a daughter Ira and son Junaid from his first marriage with Reena.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Aamir is awaiting the release of his film ‘Laal Singh Chadha’. It is the official Hindi remake of the Tom Hanks-starrer ‘Forrest Gump’. The movie, directed by Advait Chandan, also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role.
