Gashmeer Mahajani and Sumbul Touqeer Khan starrer Imlie is garnering praises from audience for its plot and performances. While the 18-year-old actress has got appreciation from the fans, she recently opened up on her life and said that her parents got divorced, when she was six. Talking to E Times, she said, "My father is a dance choreographer in several dance reality shows and he always wanted his kids to do something big in life. He saw that his kids -- my sister and I -- had a great interest in dancing so he gave this a thought and finally decided to pack his bags and bring us all to Mumbai from Delhi in 2016 where we could try our luck in the entertainment industry. So this acting ka keeda was basically given to me and my sister (who too is an actress) by our dad. My sister and I did a lot of Krishna and Ram Leela plays in Delhi from where we got inclined towards acting."
She added, "My parents got divorced when I was six, though life was different yet not difficult as I loved my dad who took care of me and my sister like a father and mother, both. My father used to wake us up for school, get us ready, prepare our breakfast and then after we used to go to school he would go to work. I was very close to my mother till we were in Delhi, my father didn't have any problems with that. But after we shifted to Mumbai, I lost touch with my mother."
The actress also revealed that she tried to find a suitable wife for her father and said, "My dad never remarried as he wasn't sure how his daughters will be treated by the stepmother. I have tried finding a bride for my dad once but the experience wasn't a good one. So as much as I would like him to be remarried, I would want him to be ready for it too."
