Mumbai: One of the shocking news in recent days, that took the whole country by surprise, was of Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao’s announcement to go separate ways after spending 15-beautiful years together. As per the joint statement, Aamir and Kiran decided to be co-parents and family for each other.
The statement reads, “In these 15 beautiful years together we have shared a lifetime of experiences, joy, and laughter, and our relationship has only grown in trust, respect and love. Now we would like to begin a new chapter in our lives — no longer as husband and wife, but as co-parents and family for each other.”
Later the duo released a video where they said to their fans that they would stay forever as a family, as this has come as a piece of shocking news to many. Meanwhile, many stories have also claimed that the two remain cordial than ever before and nothing would turn sour between the two.
Even though, all good news about their strong relationship were making rounds, some were talking about Aamir’s relationship with his former co-star Fatima Sana Shaikh. Rubbishing the rumours that Fatima was the main reason behind Aamir and Kiran’s marriage, a leading media house instead suggested that Aamir and Kiran had separated emotionally in 2019. The article in the news media quoted a Bollywood insider claiming that both marriage and divorce are extreme steps for Aamir and that the rumours of Aamir Khan, marrying Fatima Sana Shaikh is also incorrect.
The report quoting the insider read, “The reason why he and Kiran decided to separate is simple over the years. Apparently, both of them outgrew the foundation of marriage. There were no differences or issues as such. You remain as a friend. While your values and beliefs may remain the same, your needs, views on life, wants, and opinions change with time, including your outlook on love and marriage.”
It further read, “And then, at that phase in one’s life, it is better to live apart in harmony than stay together with malice in a marriage that has lived its times. While both said to have emotionally separated in 2019, they decided to have an actual trial period of separation after that for a couple of years.”
For the unversed, it was Aamir’s second marriage. Before Kiran, he was married to Reena Dutta for 16 years. They got divorced in 2002. On December 28, 2005, Kiran and Aamir got married and in 2011, they became parents to boy Azad Rao Khan via surrogacy.
