For almost a year now, actor Imran Khan and his wife Avantika Malik have been hitting headlines frequently owing to speculations around their separation. Reports suggest that their marriage has hit rock bottom and that they have been living separately. Avantika, the more active one on social media out of the pair, often shares some thoughtful posts, cryptic ones, quotes, thoughts on love, life, and relationships on her Instagram handle. Yet again, she has taken to her Instagram stories to share a quote by Junot Diaz that talks about facing one’s problems and not running away from them. Her post 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’. Last year, she shared a very strongly worded post on choosing things worth fighting for in life. She reposted a message from an author called Devon Brough and called it a ‘truth bomb’. This particular post drew more eyeballs with netizens saying the post proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that she and Imran have separated. It read, ‘Marriage is hard. Divorce is hard. Choose your hard. Obesity is hard. Being fit is hard. Choose your hard. Being in debt is hard. Being financially disciplined is hard. Choose your hard. Communication is hard. Not communicating is hard. Choose your hard. Life will never be easy. It will always be hard. But we can choose our hard. Pick wisely.’ It is worth mentioning that it’s been quite some time since Avantika shared any pictures with her husband, even though she is active on the platform. Last year, when the actor was asked to address their separation rumours at an event when he said, ‘How can you ask such a question at an event like this?’ Imraan and Avantika got married in 2011 and have a daughter called Imara.
