Imran Khan and Avantika Malik have named their daughter Imara. “It’s a Swahili name, which means ‘strong and resolute’,” says Imran. He reveals that it was his wife who found the name.

“She was doing all the work. Initially, I was quite hesitant because I felt it sounded like Imran, and it seemed egocentric. But then it came to a point where I didn’t like any other name,” he says.

Talking about how life has changed ever since he has become a father, Imran says, “It feels different the second you see the baby. I just looked at Imara and I crumbled and fell. Had it been a boy, somewhere, I think I would’ve been okay. This father-daughter thing… I looked at her and I thought, ‘My life is over now. All my life, I will be on my knees and running after her.”
