A big shocking news came out today as Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao have released an official statement that the couple is getting divorced. The couple has been married for 15 years now and has a son Azad.
Aamir and Kiran’s joint statement read, “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.”
It further read, “We began a planned separation some time ago, and now feel comfortable to formalise this arrangement, of living separately yet sharing our lives the way an extended family does. We remain devoted parents to our son Azad, who we will nurture and raise together. We will also continue to work as collaborators on films, Paani Foundation, and other projects that we feel passionate about. A big thank you to our families and friends for their constant support and understanding about this evolution in our relationship, and without whom we would not have been so secure in taking this leap. We request our well wishers for good wishes and blessings, and hope that – like us – you will see this divorce not as an end, but as the start of a new journey.
Thanks and love
Kiran and Aamir. “
The couple met each other on the sets of Lagaan and got married on December 28, 2005. This was Aamir’s second marriage as he was earlier married to Reena Dutta and have two children with her, a son named Junaid and a daughter, Ira.
