The couple, who met on the sets of Lagaan also detailed about co-parenting and that they will always remain family to each other and co-parents. Aamir and Kiran are parents to Azad whom they welcomed via surrogacy.
Read the full statement here:
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. 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.
We began a planned separation some time ago, and now feel comfortable to formalise 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. 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.
As Aamir and Kiran embark on a new phase in their lives, we wish the couple all the best!
On the film front, Aamir will next be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha that will star Kareena Kapoor Khan and Naga Chaitanya in pivotal roles.
