Imran's lack of work the reason?

Imran Khan's lack of work was cited as one of the reasons behind the split. "Imran has not faced much luck as an actor. After Katti Batti failed, offers started drying up and soon enough, he was left with no work. It's been four years that the actor is at home, doing absolutely nothing. He wanted to turn a director but that also has not taken shape the way he envisioned. He just did a small short with Dharma 2.0 and that's it," a source was quoted as saying by Pinkvilla.

For the uninitiated, the separation rumours started doing the rounds after a few reports suggested that Avantika left her husband's house with their daughter Imara and was staying with her parents. Imran and Avantika dated for eight years before finally tying the knot in 2011. They have an adorable daughter Imara who was born in 2014.
