Imtiaz Ali breaks-up with wife Preety
Director Imtiaz Ali separated from his wife Preety to spend the rest of his life with his new found love Iman Ali, a Pakistani actress and model. Iman Ali who starred in film, ‘Bol’ last year debuted in Bollywood with ‘Khuda Kay Liye’. She is the daughter of television/film actor Abid Ali. Iman Ali is the daughter from his first wife Humaira.
A source says, "Iman was introduced to the director by mutual friends in B-Town last year. Since then, they've became very close. In fact, just a day before the release of Rockstar, Imtiaz and Iman visited the Nizamuddin dargah in Delhi last year as well as in April this year."
Imtiaz and Preety are facing martial problem for many years until they divorced last year. They kept they divorced under wraps as they do not want their 11 year old daughter Ida to get affected by their separation. "Imtiaz and Iman's courtship has also been kept under wraps, and only a few people in the industry know about it. Preety has worked as an executive producer on several films and is looking at a full-fledged career as a director now. Apparently, a production house has already signed her on."
This is not new in Bollywood when any director falls for his actress. Director Anurag Basu fell in love with his wife Kalki Koechlin during the shooting of ‘Dev D’ while Sajid Khan developed special feeling for Jacqueline Fernandez during the shooting of ‘Housefull 2’.
