Highlight Story

This one will not be a big fat Bollywood wedding. Imran Khan and Avantika Malik, who are planning to the the knot next year in January, have chosen to go for a modest court wedding. But why you would wonder. Here's the reason.

Imran and Avantika belong to different religions; Imran's faith is Islam while Avantika's is Hinduism. Even though Imran's parents are known to be religious but they have never imposed it on him. Buzz is that Imran himself was very confused about the wedding and later took inspiration from his close friend and director of his upcoming film

Break Ke Baad

, Danish Aslam.


Aslam recently got married, opted a court marriage with his long time girlfriend Shruti Seth. Imran too has decided to go for a court wedding and wants it to be a private affair.

Confirming the news, Imran Khan told

Mumbai Mirror

, "I am from a Muslim family and Avantika belongs to a Hindu family. I personally didn't commit our wedding to one religion or another. We felt the best way for us was to keep it neutral and have a court marriage."
