Imtiaz Ali has always kept his personal life away from the stardom and limelight. Known for giving Indian Cinema some of the most romantic, unconventional, and complex love stories with films Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal, Tamasha and Rockstar, Imtiaz’s own love life has been nothing less than his movies. The filmmaker married Preety in 1995 but the couple separated in 2012. It was rumoured that the director was then dating an Australian chef but there was no official confirmation from Imtiaz. The filmmaker also has a daughter named Ida Ali with his estranged wife Preety. Now as per the latest reports, it is believed that the couple has once again reunited and are living together as a couple.
As per a report in ETimes, Imtiaz Ali and Preety had gone on two family trips, one to the Maldives in January 2021 followed by another one in July 2021 to Kerala, along with their daughter. Reportedly, it was during this time the couple thought of getting back together as the love rekindled between them. However, they had resolved their differences only until June 2022.
Previously it was also reported that Imtiaz started living with his estranged wife during the lockdown in her house in Mumbai. They also called back their daughter to Mumbai from the US due to rising cases of COVID-19 in the world.
