Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao took everyone by surprise on Saturday (July 3) after announcing their separation. The couple, who has been together for 15 years, will be going through a divorce and will start their journey as ‘co-parents’. Few hours after the announcement, Aamir Khan’s daughter, Ira Khan shared a cryptic post on her Instagram.
Taking to her Instagram stories, Ira Khan shared a photo of hers where she can be seen lying on the bed in a blue tank top and raised eyebrow expression. She captioned the photos as, “Next review tomorrow!” she added, “What’s it going to be?” Ira also added a pastry emoji on her photo leaving her fans to wonder what could her post be about.
Meanwhile, in a joint statement, Aamir and Kiran announced that they are ready to start a new chapter in their life and hope that everyone sees ‘this divorce not as an end, but as the start of a new journey’.
“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.”
