Aamir Khan latest news

Recently, the actor came out to narrate how he fell in love with Kiran Rao after undergoing a divorce with Reena Dutta. This news came to light after a video of Aamir speaking on a Chinese news channel was unearthed.

I met Kiran when I was doing Lagaan (2001). She was one of the ADs (assistant directors) on that, but at that time, we didn't have any relationship, and we were not even great friends. She was one of the people in 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, he added.

The actor is among the few lucky people who get second chances in love.

With more than 30 years of experience in the entertainment industry, Aamir Khan has amassed huge following not only in India but in the whole world. His impressive acting skills have given him numerous accolades. He is a force to reckon with and a source of inspiration to many.
