Earlier, while the rumour mill was abuzz with Aamir and Fatima’s reportedly link up, the actress had reacted to the rumours and told Bollywood Hungama, she said, “It’s very weird. My mother keeps on watching TV and the other day she showed me ‘Your photo has come’ and I was like ‘Read the headline to know what’s written.’ I used to get disturbed and I felt like I should explain myself. If someone accuses you of something, the first instinct is to come out and tell, ‘Listen, why do you think it is like this?’ If you are an aggressive person, you will attack.”
She further added, “If you are a submissive person, even then you will talk about it. But, now, I do not feel the need to explain because I feel no matter what you do, people will talk about you. “Logo ka kaam hai bolna woh bolenge.” No point getting affected by it. People, who write these things, are the people who will meet me nicely. I know it’s their job but I hope they sleep well (laughs).”
Meanwhile, Aamir and Kiran had released an official statement announcing their divorce. In a long joint statement, the couple said that they were planning their separation for some time. They said that they will continue to be ‘devoted parents’ to their son, Azad.
