Actor confirms he’s dating Lekha Washington

News Desk June 11, 2024


Indian actor Imran Khan has opened up about his relationship with fellow actor Lekha Washington. He revealed that after “living solo” for five years following his divorce from Avantika Malik, he is now preparing to move in with Lekha. Appearing on comedian Raunaq Rajani’s YouTube channel, Imran shared, “My relationship status (is that) I am seeing somebody. I am currently in the status of moving into a new apartment. I have been living solo for the past five years.”

When asked if they are moving in together, Imran said, “We are in the process of moving into the new apartment together.” When asked how long he and Lekha have been dating, Imran shared, “Covid is when we started seeing each other.” Opening up about how the two decided to move in together, Imran said, “She brought it up! I’ll be real with you, man. So, I was like, ‘Why not? It’s been long enough’.”

Imran shared that he is still unaccustomed to living with another person after separating from Avantika in 2016. Opening up about how he and Lekha are processing the new phase in their lives, Imran said, “Still in the process… Which, for those who have done this sort of thing know, has all of its weirdness and awkwardness. The part of the thing is that I am older now and I have spent enough time getting really set in my ways. I have been living alone for the last five years, so I got super into the minimalism thing — as few things, as few objects I could possibly have at my home.”

Imran had earlier shared that when he was living alone, he had only three plates at home. However, he said that he and Lekha are now in the process of buying more crockery. He shared, “Now that we are moving in together, I’m like, ‘Alright, we need more things’. She’s like, ‘We need different kinds of glasses to drink different kinds of beverages’, and I’m like, ‘But my mug is great, it holds everything. How many glasses do you need?’. So, yes, we are having a conflict about the number of objects (to have at home) and it is going more her way so far. I’ve got like 15 plates. There’s two of us.”

The actor and Lekha made their relationship official on social media when they attended Aamir Khan’s daughter, Ira Khan’s wedding together.
