en Bollywood News Kiran Rao reveals she married Aamir Khan ‘more because of her parents’ pressure; says, “Marriage tends to stifle, especially women”

Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan, who are also parents to Azad Rao, announced their separation in 2021.

Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan, who left many surprised by the announcement of their separation about three years ago, continue to share a great camaraderie. In fact, the estranged couple came together to direct and produce the recently released Laapataa Ladies which went on to receive a lot of appreciation. Now in a recent interaction, as Kiran recalled her married days with Khan, she revealed that somewhere, they got married due to parental pressure after living together for one year.

Elaborating on the same, Kiran Rao told She The People, “Aamir and I lived together for a year before we got married honestly, we did it more because parents and you know… all the rest of it and even at that time we knew that it’s a great institution if you can function as individuals as well as a couple within that institution.”

The filmmaker also shared about the impact marriage has on women and how their lives are affected by it. “The thing we don't talk about enough is how marriage tends to stifle, especially women. How you could find perhaps a way to be yourself within the institution. That's something up for debate and discussion. Esther Perel (American psychologist) has written an amazing book on it, and it's very interesting. As apes, we were living together. This nuclear family setup is a pressure, and it's a pressure especially on women. There's so much responsibility on the women to run the house, keep the family together. In fact, women are expected to keep in touch with the in-laws, to be in touch with your husband's family. That's a lot of expectation,” she added.

Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan tied the knot in 2005 and became parents to Azad Rao Khan via surrogacy in 2011. Ten years after that, in 2021, the couple took to social media to announce about their separation.
