In a shocking development, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and his wife, filmmaker Kiran Rao announced their divorce in a statement issued to the media reporters just a couple of days ago. In a joint statement released to the press, Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao added that they will still remain as co-parents for their son Azad.
It is to be noted that Aamir Khan was earlier hitched to Reena Dutta from 1986 to 2002 and they have 2 children, son Junaid and daughter Ira. Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao tied the knot on December 28, 2005, after the latter helped filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker on Lagaan, which was produced by the superstar.
The couple also announced the birth of their son, Azad Rao Khan, through surrogacy in December 2001. The statement issued by the couple 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. 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 joint statement concluded.
