He stole a million hearts with his Bollywood debut, 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na', but, to every young girl’s disappointment, his heart already belonged to someone else. Well, we are talking about none another than the tinsel town’s stylish young couple, Imran Khan and Avantika Malik. What started as puppy love actually turned into an everlasting bond, as the two lovebirds who had been dating for almost a decade, finally tied the knot on January 10, 2011.
With their strong love for each other, they are truly an inspiration for a lot of young couples in the country.
Imran met Avantika when he was just 19 years old. The two started dating and were in the so-called ‘puppy love’ phase. They even lived together for a year in Los Angeles, where Imran was pursuing a course in acting.
The Beautiful Proposal: For a lot of men, especially in Bollywood, their career is the priority when they are young. But, Imran did not worry about how his career would shape up if he got married so early. Taking the example of few of his seniors such as Anil Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, and Hrithik Roshan, he too decided to take the plunge and asked Avantika to marry him. But, how he asked her was the real icing on the cake!
Absolutely romantic at heart, Imran planned a Bollywood-style proposal for his lady love by sneaking into her house and decorating her entire room with candles. He then went down on his knees and asked her to be his forever. Of course, she gave a "yes".
The Wedding: The two decided to get married on January 10, 2011. While they had an intimate registered marriage at Avantika’s home in Pali Hills, Mumbai, the pre-wedding celebrations, as well as their wedding reception, witnessed all the powerful personalities from the world of Bollywood and business.
The pre-wedding celebrations began on January 5, 2011, with a cocktail dinner hosted by Imran’s uncle, Aamir Khan, at a hotel in Bandra, Mumbai. Next was a pre-wedding bash that took place on January 7, 2011. The next celebration, which was their Mehendi ceremony, took place at Avantika’s farmhouse in Karjat, Mumbai. And, after their registered marriage on January 10, 2011, they hosted a reception party at the Taj Land’s End Hotel, in Mumbai.
Imran, it seems you don't hate the love stories, that too much.
Best wishes to this couple from team MubaraQ ho.
