Bollywood’s chocolate boy, Imran Khan is known for being extremely private. However, Imran’s announcement regarding his split with Avantika Malik took everyone by surprise. Though it has almost been a year since their split, neither Imran nor Avantika have said anything on the matter, leaving the audience wondering what must’ve gone wrong.
While many reports claim that it was Imran’s failing career that resulted in the split, a little birdie told us that these reports are far from the truth. So, what is the truth after all?
Yes, you must have guessed it right, it was a classic tale of third-wheeling. Like many Bollywood wives, Avantika was also a victim of infidelity. And who is it this mistress you may ask? Well, it was none other than Lekha Washington. For those of you who don’t know, Lekha Washington is an actress, popularly known for her work in Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada movies.
A source revealed “Imran 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.”
If conjectures are to be believed, Imran has also rented a place near his house to meet his new lover. A neighbour of Imran revealed “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.”
Whether it is a misunderstanding or the bitter truth, we hope Imran and Avantika are now content in their respective lives!
