Aamir Khan, 56 years old, and Kiran Rao, 45 years old, have announced their divorce after 15 years of being a married couple. They told their fans about it in a recent Hindi-language video posted on Youtube on the page of Paani Foundation, which is a non-profit organization founded by Aamir, Kiran behind the Satyamev Jayate show. The fact about the separation startled everyone. The reason for the break up was tension and controversy in the family. The application for the divorce will be filed soon.
The ex-couple admitted they had been living separately for some time, moreover, there had been an emotional distance between them for several years. Their breakup was pre-planned, and now they feel ready to formalize it. However, they have an intention to go on working together on their common projects.
Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao told they wanted to start a new chapter in their lives, not in the roles of partners, but rather as co-parents of their son Azad Rao Khan, and a family for each other. Aamir and Kiran owned up they had shared beautiful experiences, happiness, and joy and their relationship had grown in trust and love.
The divorce didn’t stop the ex-partners from having a vacation in Kargil together, with their son. Apparently, they want to help him live through this difficult stage with love, care, and support from both parents together.
They met in 2001 during the filming of Lagaan, a blockbuster film, where Kiran worked as an assistant director and married in four years. Before these relationships, Aamir was a husband to Reena Dutta for 16 years. Aamir and Kiran got married in December 2005 and gave birth to their son in 2011.
A Bollywood insider tells that Aamir is a serious man, taking every step in life only after profound consideration. There are gossips about his affairs with other women, but Aamir is a very friendly and outgoing person having warm and informal relationships with a lot of people on the film sets.
In the video, Aamir thanked his family and friends for understanding their decision. He also told that this end was a new beginning.
The event may make us reflect on the fact that the traditions of an Indian family are changing, and it is inevitable in our modern world.
