Aamir Khan opens up on his equation with wife Kiran Rao


Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has mostly kept his personal life private and refrains from sharing details about it. Even at press events and interviews, he mostly talks about his movies and social projects.

However, in a recent interview with the Chinese media, Aamir has opened up about his personal life like never before, sharing details on his relationship with wife, Kiran, how they fell for each other and his relationship with his ex-wife.

“I met Kiran when I was doing Lagaan. She was one of the ADs of the film, but at that time, we were just mere acquaintances. For me, she was just one of the people on the unit,” Aamir said, speaking on how he first met his wife.

“It was well after my separation and divorce when I met her again,” he continued. “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 talking to her makes me happy.”

After that phone call, Aamir recalled that he and Kiran began dating and even lived together for more than a year before they finally tied the knot in 2005, three years after his separation from first wife, Reena Dutta.

“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,” he said.

On his first wife, Reena, Aamir remarked, “She 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 currently working together on this Paani project. She is also the COO of the company.”

Earlier, Kiran in an interview had revealed that she had seen Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak which starred Juhi Chawla and Aamir in the leads on the new VCR her family had purchased. She said that she loved his performance and thoroughly enjoyed the film adding that she thought that Aamir was a “very cute guy.”

She said that she never imagined in her wildest dreams that years later she would actually date, marry and have kids with that “cute guy”.
