Last year, Aamir Khan and his wife, and filmmaker Kiran Rao, announced their separation in July, after being married for 15 years. The news came as a shock to the actor’s fans. However, many even speculated that the 3 Idiots actor had an affair, which led to their divorce.
However, now, the Dangal actor reacted to the rumours of his alleged affair and told News18. “There was no one back then, there is no one now,” said the actor.
Aamir also stated that he still loves his ex-wife and they have a lot of respect and love for each other. “Kiran and I realised that we like each other so much and consider one another family in the truest sense. Kiran and I are actually families. But our relationship of husband and wife experienced a certain change and we wanted to respect the institution of marriage. However, we are always going to be by each other’s side. We are working together. We live close by. But we are no longer husband and wife and that’s why we decided to call it quits.”

The duo released an official statement that read as: “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. 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.”
On the work front, Aamir will be seen next in Laal Singh Chadha, co-starring Kareena Kapoor Khan. It is slated for cinema release on 11 August 2022.
