Aamir Khan recently went on social media for the sweetest reason, to wish his daughter Ira a happy birthday. He not only posted an extreme throwback picture but he wrote a sweet caption along with it as well. Aamir wrote, “Happy 21st Ira! Can’t believe you got there so fast! You will always remain 6 for me! Love you. Papa.” The love of a father can never be replaced by any other person ever. Also, a father is the first superhero a daughter has. What is better than having a superstar as your superhero daddy? Nothing!
Ira Khan is Amir Khan’s younger daughter from his first wife Reena Dutta. Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta, unfortunately, got divorced in 2002. Later, Aamir Khan fell in love with Kiran Rao and married her. He has a son with her.
When asked about how he met Kiran in an interview, Aamir replied, “I met Kiran when I was doing Lagaan. She was one of the ADs (assistant directors) on that but at that time, we didn’t have any relationship, we were not even great friends. She was one of the people in the unit. It was after my separation and divorce after some time that I met her again.”
“In that moment of trauma, her phone came and I talked to her on the phone for half an hour. And when I put the phone down, I said, My God! I feel so happy when I talk to her.’ It struck me in that instant that when I am talking to her I am so happy,” he further continued. After dating and living with Kiran for more than a year, the couple got married in 2005.
On the professional side, Aamir Khan will return to the big screen with the new film Lal Singh Chaddha which is said to be a remake of the Hollywood Film ‘Forrest Gump.’ The writer to the film will be Atul Kulkarni and it is going to be directed by Advait Chandan of Secret Superstar fame.
