Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao have announced their divorce on Saturday, ending their 16 years of marriage. It is learned that the decision was not taken suddenly, instead, the star couple was planning the separation for a long time.
Now, when they announced their separation, the netizens are indirectly blaming Bollywood actress Fatima Sana Shaikh – debuted in the film industry in 2016 with the movie ‘Dangal’ produced by Aamir – mentioning her as the “third wheel” between Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao.
Many think that “it is Aamir’s weakness towards Fatima” is the main reason behind this divorce. Aamir’s relation with Fatima is not new, even they were seen together in many events, according to Indian media reports.
Indian media outlets reported that Aamir gave a chance to the beauty queen Fatima Sana Shaikh in the film ‘Dangal’. It is heard that Aamir showed the green signal after watching her audition. From then on, rumors about Aamir-Fatima began. Fatima was seen with Aamir at various Bollywood parties. They even have been seen walking “hand in hand” in many places in Mumbai.
Aamir’s such affection towards Fatima Sana Shaikh reached Kiran Rao’s ears, however, this rumor had escalated when Aamir gave Fatima a chance to play in the film ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ produced by Aditya Chopra.
It is heard that Aamir himself called and asked many producers and directors to cast Fatima in films. Critics think that it was Aamir’s weakenss towards Fatima that slowly set fire to Kiran Rao’s family, resulting the divorce between Aamir-Kiran.
However, Aamir never wanted to open his mouth about this. In an interview, Fatima said about Aamir, “I like Aamir. And that is normal. But we have no love affair. Rather, I think him as a mentor. This rumor is absolutely not true.”
It is to be mentioned that the relationship between Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao started in 2000 on the set of the movie ‘Lagaan’ where Kiran was the assistant director of the film. They got married on December 28, 2005. The former couple has a son named Azad Rao Khan.
Aamir Khan’s first wife Reena Dutt. They separated in 2002 after 16 years of marriage. They have two children named Ira and Junaid in their house.
