After 15 years of marital bliss, the lovely couple had decided to part ways and had announced the same by releasing an official statement.

It was after his divorce from his first wife, Reena Datta when during a phone call, Aamir had realised that talking to Kiran makes him happy. They had started dating and got married on December 28, 2005. The duo had welcomed their son, Azaad Rao Khan in 2011.

On December 1, 2021, author and columnist, Shobha De took to her IG handle and posted pictures from Azad's birthday celebrations.

“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.”
On July 4, 2021, Aamir and Kiran were seen together in a video wherein Aamir had shared a message for their fans. He had said:
"Ap logo ko acha nahi laga hoga, dukh bhi hua hoga, acha nahi laga hoga. Hum bas apko itna kehna chahte hai ki hum duno bahut khush hai or hum ek hi parivaar hai. Humare rishte mein change aaya hai, lekin hum duno ek dusre ke saath hi hai. Or ap log humare liye dua kijiye."
