Yesterday, Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao announced that they were parting ways after 15 years of marriage. NGL, it was shocking for all of us because they always looked like a perfect couple. And you know what? They still are. Yes, they may no longer be ideal husband and wife, but they made us realise once again that separation can signify mutual growth and happiness.
They shared an official statement on their social media handles and said that they have decided to begin a new chapter of their lives as a family for each other. It 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.” They also mentioned that they would continue collaborating on projects professionally and raising their son, Azad Khan, together.
TBH, that’s really beautiful and we love how gracefully Aamir and Kiran have addressed their split. In fact, they shared another video today and talked about their decision in detail. They said that while they understand their fans’ emotions, they’re really happy in their lives.
“Toh aap logon ko dukh bhi hua hoga, achcha nahi laga hoga, shock laga hoga. Hum bas itna aapko kehna chahte hai ki hum log dono bohot khush hai aur hum ek hi parivaar hai. Humare rishte mein change aaya hai. Lekin hum log ek doosre ke saath hi hai, toh aap log aisa kabhi mat sochiyega (You all must be saddened and shocked by the news. We just want to tell you that we are very happy and we are a part of one family. Our relationship has changed. But we are still with each other, so please don’t think otherwise),” they said.
Isn’t that’s all that matters at the end of the day? They further added that their NGO, Paani Foundation will always be an integral part of their lives. They said, “Aur Paani Foundation humare liye Azad ki tarah hai, jo humara bachcha hai, Azad, waise hi Paani Foundation. Toh humlog humesha family hi rahenge. Humare liye aap log dua kariye, prarthna kariye ki hum khush ho. Bas yehi kehna tha hum logon ko (Paani Foundation is like our son, Azad, for us. We will always be family. Please pray for our happiness. This is all we wanted to say).”
Well, we admire their positive outlook on the situation and wish them luck for the new phase of their lives.
