Imraan Khan, Aamir's 25-year old nephew and the star of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, may be following his mama's professional footsteps but on the personal front, he appears to be different from Aamir. While Aamir had hidden his girlfriend and later wife, Reena (now they are divorced and Aamir has since re-married Kiran Rao) during his entry into the film industry, Imraan proudly escorted his girlfriend, Avantika Mallik to the music of launch of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na on May 20 at Shammi Kapoor's residence.
Says a source, "Last week, when Aamir, Kiran, Mansoor Khan and Naseer Hussain's daughter Nuzhat (Imraan's mother and Mansoor Khan's sister) came for the music release at Shammi Kapoor's residence, Kiran and Nuzhat were quietly seen accompanying a young, pretty girl. She's 23-year old Avantika, apparently Imraan's girlfriend and daughter of TV18's head honcho, Vandana Mallik. Imraan and Avantika met at a social event a few months ago and since then have become inseparable. Avantika came for the event and was seen chatting comfortably with Imraan's mother and Kiran. She's quite a familiar presence in Aamir and Imraan's home. At the music launch, during Imran"s speech, Avantika was seen proudly clapping and cheering him on"
Imraan makes his debut in Abbas Tyrewala's Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na produced by Aamir Khan Productions, where he plays the role of Jai Singh Rathore. He will also be seen in Shree Ashtavinayak's Kidnap with Sanjay Dutt and Luck directed by Soham Shah.
