Actor Aamir Khan turns 54 on Thursday and to kick off the celebrations, we have just the right treat for his fans. The talented actor is not only known for his great work in movies but also for being a true family man. And what better way to celebrate his birthday than with a selection of his cutest family pics.
Aamir started working in films when he was just 19 years old when he made his movie debut with 1984’s Holi. He later worked in films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Dil and other romantic movies that made him a star. Two years after his debut, he married Reena Dutta, who had a small role in QSQT. Together, they had a son, Junaid, and a daughter, Ira.
The actor went on to work in hits like Sarfarosh, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Raja Hindustani, Rangeela, Akele Hum Akele Tum. He later worked in Lagaan, Rang De Basanti, Dil Chahta Hai, Taare Zameen Par, 3 Idiots and more, which earned him great critical acclaim as well. Reena and Aamir parted ways in 2002 and Reena was given the custody of both the kids. On a recent episode of Koffee With Karan, Aamir spoke about Reena with extreme fondness. “Reena and I were married for 16 years and when we broke up it was traumatic for me, for her and both our families. But we tried to deal with it as best as we could. It did not mean that I lost respect for Reena, or for that matter, I lost my love for Reena. She is a really wonderful person,” he said.
Aamir met Kiran Rao on the sets of Lagaan, on which she was the assistant director. They two got married in 2005 and welcomed their son Azad Rao Khan in 2011. The three now live together in their Mumbai home and treat their fans to adorable family pictures from costume parties.
In an interview to the Chinese media, Aamir talked about Kiran, how they fell for each other, his relationship with his ex-wife and how his eccentricities make Kiran love him even more. “I met Kiran when I was doing Lagaan. She was one of the ADs (assistant directors) on that but at that time, we didn’t have any relationship, we were not even great friends. She was one of the people on the unit. It was after my separation and divorce after some time that I met her again,” he said. “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.
“I can never imagine a life without Kiran as my partner. I feel very blessed and I am very grateful in my life… she is a wonderful person and I am very lucky to have her in my life,” he said.
