Imran Khan-Avantika: Finally, Honeymoon


By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, July 17 -- Finally, Imran Khan is set to go on his honeymoon. Post-Delhi Belly's super success, the actor intends to go ahead with his plans by the end of this month. The actor had married his long-time girlfriend Avantika Malik in January this year, but kept postponing the trip, citing work commitments as his excuse.

Immediately after their wedding, Imran and Avantika were apparently set for a three-day trip to Hawaii. But shooting schedules played spoilsport as the young actor was busy with Yash Raj Films' Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Karan Johar's Stand By Me.

"Yes, I am planning to go on my honeymoon at the end of this month. Seriously, I have been very busy over the past few months," says Imran, adding that he is "trying hard to work out his schedule to get a proper two or two-and-a-half-week break."

"Even now, there's a fight with work. One brand wants to shoot an ad, while another needs a day for their photoshoot. Two days after the wedding, I was back on the sets shooting for my films. But I must add that Avantika has been really supportive," says Imran.

The actor confesses that he sometimes feel guilty about postponing the holiday. "I feel, 'poor girl (Avantika), she is not saying anything. But at some point, I must make that effort.' Now, I will make sure that the honeymoon plans work out. It should definitely happen before the promotions for Mere Brother Ki Dulhan start in mid-August," he says. Even as Imran plans out his honeymoon, he reveals that his uncle Aamir Khan is already on holiday: "He is the first one to sneak away after a film's release," says the 28-year-old with a laugh. "He told me, 'ab tu kar promotion (you do the promotion).' And he left quietly for a break sometime last week. He always does it; checks out the first week collections of films and goes on a holiday."
