One of the biggest celebrity couples of Bollywood, Aamir Khan, and his wife Kiran Rao, has announced divorce on Saturday. The couple who have been married for almost fifteen years have decided to part ways. However, the couple has mentioned in their statement that it's 'not an end but a fresh new start for them.
"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," began the statement. "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.”
It further read, "We began a planned separation some time ago, and now feel comfortable to formalize this arrangement, of living separately yet sharing our lives the way an extended family does. We remain devoted parents to our son Azad, who we will nurture and raise together. We will also continue to work as collaborators on films, Paani Foundation, and other projects that we feel passionate about.”
Aamir Khan and Kiran also have a son named Azad together. “A big thank you to our families and friends for their constant support and understanding about this evolution in our relationship, and without whom we would not have been so secure in taking this leap. We request our well-wishers for good wishes and blessings and hope that – like us – you will see this divorce not as an end, but as the start of a new journey,” the statement signed by both Aamir and Kiran read.
