Their split welcomed a lot of controversies and allegations. While it has been almost eight months since their divorce, Aamir Khan recently opened up on his life after parting ways with Kiran Rao. The actor clarified that he and Kiran have not divorced because of his alleged relationship with someone else.
In a conversation with News18, Aamir clarified that his divorce from his first wife Reena Dutta did not happen because of Kiran. The Dangal actor stated that there was no one in his life when he separated from Reena. He also added that although he knew Kiran, they became friends much later.
And when asked if his divorce with Kiran is due to him being in any new relationship, the actor outright refuted the claim, and said, “No. There was no one back then, there is no one now.”
Aamir further added that he and Kiran love each other. Not only this, they have a lot of respect for one another. But people don’t get this which he accepts.
