Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is someone who likes to keep his personal life private. Popularly called as Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood, Aamir is a family man and is known for so many other things which make others admire him so much not just as an actor but as a person as well. But even after all this, he never likes to talk about or reveal information about his personal life to the media or public. In fact, at press events or even in interviews, he likes to talk about his movies and social projects but never about his personal life. However, in one of the latest unearthed videos, the ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ actor has revealed a lot of personal information which he had never in the past.
In the video, Aamir Khan talked about his personal life, how he fell in love with Kiran Rao, his relationship with his ex-wife Reena Dutta, and others in an interview with a Chinese media.
Starting with how he met his current wife, Kiran Rao, this is what Aamir Khan said to the interviewer:
“I met Kiran when I was doing ‘Lagaan’. She was one of the ADs (assistant directors) on that. But at that time, we didn’t have any relationship, we were not even great friends. She was one of the people on the unit. It was after my separation and divorce after some time that I met her again. 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 when I am talking to her I am so happy.”
After that phone call, Aamir and Kiran began dating and seeing each other and even lived together for more than a year before they got married in 2005, three years after his separation from 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. He went on to say that they are very close and love spending time together and constantly laugh together because they find their ‘sense of humor quite similar’.
When asked if he likes strong women, Aamir agreed and said that he likes strong people and even gave the example of Reena as well. And when the interviewer complimented that it’s good to have a nice relationship with his first wife, the actor said this about Reena:
“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 working together on this Paani project. She is the COO of the company.”
When asked how it is for a woman to be the wife of an artist, Aamir talked about how Kiran tackles his ‘Mr perfectionist’ side and how he’s made certain changes in his timetable and the time he spends with his wife and son.
