Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao definitely make a lovely pair. The couple has been together for many years and has a son together. But, not many know about their love story and how the two of them met. The actor was divorced when he met Kiran. He was already a father of two kids- Junaid and Ira from his first marriage with Reena Dutta. But, the relationship between his ex-wife Reena and Kiran are really good. They are often seen together and they even work together on Paani Foundation.
Speaking to Chinese media recently, Aamir Khan opened up about his life with Kiran. “I met Kiran when I was doing Lagaan. She was one of the ADs (assistant directors) on that but at that time, we didn’t have any relationship, we were not even great friends. She was one of the people on the unit. It was after my separation and divorce after some time that I met her again. In that moment of trauma, her phone came and I talked to her on the phone for half an hour. And when I put the phone down, I said, ‘My God! I feel so happy when I talk to her.’ It struck me in that instant that when I am talking to her I am so happy,” he said.
Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao began dating and lived together for a while before tying the knot. Talking about Kiran and how grateful he is that he met her, he said, “I can never imagine a life without Kiran as my partner. I feel very blessed and I am very grateful in my life… she is a wonderful person and I am very lucky to have her in my life.”
Talking about strong women in his life, Aamir added, “She (Reena Dutta) is a wonderful person as well. Sometimes a relationship doesn’t work but I have a lot of love and respect for her. In fact, we are working together on this Paani project. She is the COO of the company.”
“It has taken me a lot of time to come to terms with the fact that I am a very self-obsessed person. When I am doing Thugs of Hindostan or I am doing Dangal, that film is taking so much of my attention and focus and I am so sharply into that, that my family is not in focus. Kiran told me this about a year ago. She said, ‘You know, actually you are not interested in us but I am not sure it is such a bad thing,’” Aamir told in the interview.
