Superstar Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao have announced their split from a 15-year long marriage. The couple was married in 2005 and have divorced each other last week. During the span of their marriage, the actor had revealed that he wanted his wife Kiran Rao to act in films, especially star opposite him in a feature film.
Although, Kiran who is a filmmaker, happened to be seen in Aamir’s Dil Chahta hai for a smaller glance. Years later, Aamir wanted Kiran to act in her own directorial debut ‘Dhobi Ghat’. During an interview in 2013, Aamir opened up and said, “It has occurred to me and I pushed her very hard for it. There was a role in Dhobi Ghat which I wanted her to do. It’s the role of Yasmin. Yasmin is the girl in the videotape who my character falls in love with and gets attracted to. I used to see her reading the script and read out. Yasmin’s character as she did other characters. And I thought she was just unbelievable as Yasmin.”
Finally, the role went to Kriti Malhotra. Aamir added, “But even otherwise I have suggested to her that we should do a film together because she is a fantastic actress and I would really love to do a film with her.”
