There is no doubt in the fact that Bollywood has seen some beautiful and offbeat love stories on the silver screen, all thanks to director Imtiaz Ali who through a lot of films such as Jab We Met, Rockstar, Tamasha etc showed love on the screen in an all new avatar. Well, it seems that the director is now busy in writing another love story and that too of himself.
As per the latest news that is doing rounds on the internet, Imtiaz is these days dating MasterChef Australia Season 6 contestant namely Sarah Todd. Not only has she participated in the show but is also has a well-known restaurant and is also an author of a cookbook.
She has known Imtiaz for quite a long time now and has now permanently settled in Goa where she runs a 250-seat Australian-themed restaurant in the northern part of Goa. A source close to the director told Mumbai Mirror that they both like spending time with each other. Further, the source said, “They share a common passion for food and travel and like spending time with each other. Imtiaz is a very private person and likes to keep his personal life away from the public view. They are taking it slow for now and there is no clarity if the topic of marriage has been raised.”
The buzz of both of them dating each other starting rising when Sarah posted a picture with Imtiaz on her social media account and called his company great. She along with the picture wrote, “Still pinching myself when I look around at the incredible place my team and I have built. It’s off season and we’re almost full every night...off season, what off season, we had the @thepotbelleez playing last weekend one of the biggest Dj’s out of Australia and a fantastic cocktail and canapé paired event...so proud of our hard-working staff...and great company @imtiazaliofficial”

Making karari roti @thewinerackmumbai - we have a special food and wine paired evening on May 30, make sure you call up to book your space, it’s almost sold out! Hope to see you there. This is actually a tough skill to learn, took hours of practise to be able to nail it every time. So much fun creating this one.
Talking about Imtiaz, the 46-year-old filmmaker had previously married Preety Ali but they got divorced after 10 years of marriage in the year 2012. They both even have a daughter named Ida Ali. Post his divorce, when he was asked how has he changed after his divorce to which he said, “Yes, I am. I had become very formal in my approach to everybody. Marriage is so artificial; it comes with so many dos and don'ts that not only make you claustrophobic but also mediocre. It reduces you to a ch***a version of yourself, you play roles to meet someone else's expectations. Today, I say things as they are. I'm not hypocritical. I am as open-minded as when I was in school and college.”
After his divorce, it was also being said that he came quite close to Pakistani model and actress Iman Ali and soon they started dating each other. They both were even seen together post the release of his film Rockstar that created raves on the internet. Talking about their relationship, a closed source told an entertainment portal, "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."
Well, talking about Imtiaz's alleged girlfriend Sarah, we just wish that the love between the couple grows day by day.
