After 15 years of marriage, Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao have announced that they are divorcing. The couple announced in a joint statement posted on Saturday that they will continue to co-parent their son Azad.
“In these 15 lovely years together, we have shared a lifetime of experiences, joy, and laughter, and our relationship has only grown in trust, respect, and love,” Kiran and Aamir said in a statement. We’d like to start a new chapter in our life together, no longer as husband and wife, but as co-parents and family.”
“We started a planned separation a long time ago and are now ready to formalise our arrangement of living separately but sharing our lives as an extended family. We will continue to be loving parents to our son Azad, whom we will raise together. We will also continue to collaborate on films, the Paani Foundation, and other initiatives that we are enthusiastic about,” said the statement.
“A huge thank you to our families and friends for their unwavering support and acceptance of our relationship’s progress; without them, we would not have felt so confident in taking this step. We ask for well wishes and blessings from our well-wishers, and hope that, like us, you will consider our divorce as the beginning of a new journey. Kiran and Aamir, many thanks and best wishes.”
