After 15 years of marriage, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and filmmaker Kiran Rao in a joint statement on Wednesday, July 03, announced their divorce. The couple said that their professional partnership on projects they are passionate about will continue as well as they will co-parent their son, Azad Rao Khan.
Through the statement, the couple revealed that they had separated some time ago and now felt comfortable to formalise the arrangement of living separately.
“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,” a statement issued by Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao read.
“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” added the couple in their statement.
Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan tied the knot in 2005. In December 2020, Aamir and Kiran along with Azad and the actor’s daughter Ira Khan were seen celebrating their 15 th wedding anniversary at the Gir National Park.
