While he took a break during the shoot of Break Ke Baad, it was his director who came up with a genius idea inspired by his own life. Danish Aslam, who too had an inter-religious marriage with Shruti Seth, suggested that Imran go for a court marriage like he did.
Reveals Imran, "I am from a Muslim family and Avantika belongs to a Hindu family. I personally didn't want to commit our wedding to one religion or another. We felt the best way for us was that we would keep it neutral and have a court marriage. Even Danish, my director of Break Ke Baad, was in the same situation and had a court marriage too."
The wedding will now be a court marriage, a very intimate affair at the star's house in the second week of January, 2011. Everything about it is being kept hush.
