    Imran Khan entered Bollywood in 2008 with the movie Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Through this movie, he came to the attention of everyone in Bollywood. Although he was successful in his first movie, he did not see success in his career. He was plagued with several unsuccessful films and a high-profile DEVORCE with his wife, Avantika Malik. Due to these reasons, Imran faced professional and personal challenges in his life. But during so much turmoil, his daughter Imara emerged as a beacon of hope and strength.

    The Fall: Career and Personal Struggles

    After a successful debut in Bollywood, Imran’s career took a downward turn. Even after acting in big-budget films, he could not maintain the high point of his initial success. Either due to poor script choice or, unfortunately, his career never took off. Besides adding to his misery, after eight years of Imran’s marriage with Avantika Malik, it took the form of divorce, which made him mentally and physically weak.

    Minimum stage: mental and physical strain

    In a candid interview with Humans of Bombay, Imran shared how he went through the most vulnerable period after his breakup in 2019. He was so mentally broken that he was unable to perform basic tasks like brushing his teeth and taking a bath. He did not go out and spent the whole day at home. Most of the time, he was in his pajamas and kept himself in profound lethargy and depression.

    A Ray of Sun: Fatherhood

    Despite the darkness, Imran finds sunshine in his daughter Imara. For Imara, he shares time with Avantika. Imara used to stay with Imran from Thursday to Sunday. No matter how weak he was these days, he would find the strength to get out of bed and do his father’s duty. Imara was dropped off at school and happily occupied herself with cooking or household chores. Imara became his source of inspiration and strength.

    Current: Co-parenting and moving forward

    Imran’s commitment to fatherhood is evident in his balanced co-parenting arrangement with Avantika. This year, at the wedding of Aamir Khan’s daughter, Ira Khan, Imran appeared with Imara and his current girlfriend, Lakha Washington. He insists that he and Avantika are effectively raising Imara as co-parents. Imran made sure that their daughter remained their top priority.

    Imran Khan’s journey from the brink of Bollywood stardom to facing personal and professional challenges is a testament to his resilience. Through his struggle, he discovered the strength of a father, which helped him navigate through his darkest days. With his new relationship, Imran’s days in the future are expected to be brighter as his parentage balance moves forward.
