If you find bumping into your ex at a party ‘awkward’, you should probably take innumerous cues from the inmates of the Tinseltown. Stars that we never ever thought of sharing screen space together are often found dating one another, ex-couples sitting together and making each other feel all ‘cool’ about it, half-siblings bonding with each other and the like, the queer camaraderie shared between stars amidst complex relationships makes us think that a utopian world, surely does exist! Speaking in similar lines, here’s talking about Aamir Khan’s family. (Do Read: Virat Kohli Had An Unmissable Reaction Upon Seeing Wife, Anushka Sharma Receiving Him At The Airport)
From writing a letter with blood for his ‘saamne wali khidki’ pyaar (first wife, Reena Dutt) to falling in love with his film’s assistant director (second wife, Kiran Rao), Aamir Khan has had his fair share of headline-grabbing, all thanks to his hustled love life. However, the silver lining is that Reena shares a warm bond with Kiran and is often spotted sharing a hearty laugh at get-togethers with one another. And when the ex and current wife share such an amicable bond with one another, it is only likely that their children will get along well. The latest example of some ‘major bonding happening’ between the Khan half-siblings is shared for you in the next paragraph.
Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao welcomed their first child, Azad Rao Khan, 7 years back from today (November 25, 2019) via surrogacy. For the same, his half-sister, Ira Khan (daughter of Reena Dutt from his first marriage), took to Instagram and posted a heartfelt wish for the little one. The same was worded as “You adorable ball of cuteness! Happy Birthday, Azad. What a cool kid you're turning out to be! I can't wait to get to know you better. I hope I can be at least half the older sibling to you that Junaid was to me. Happy growing up! #babybrother #birthday #happybirthday #youcouldtotallypassofffora12yearold #love #hugs #snapchatbuddy #snapchatfilters #snapchat #funnyfaces.” Isn’t it adorable?
Ira Khan has a spectacular way of wishing her loved ones on birthdays on special occasions. It was Aamir Khan’s 54th birthday on March 14, 2019, and his beautiful daughter, Ira Khan had posted an all-smiles picture of herself and her father. What we could decipher from the picture, Aamir Khan was wearing a black jacket, with his daughter Ira by his side. Sharing the adorable picture, Ira had written, “To the coolest dad ever. Happy Birthdaayy!!” (Also Read: Salman Khan Wishes His Father, Salim Khan On His 84th Birthday With A Picture-Perfect Post)
Aamir Khan too isn’t far behind when it comes to pouring out heartfelt wishes. On Ira Khan's 21st birthday (May 10, 2019) and exactly at midnight, the doting daddy had taken to social media to post a beautiful wish for his daughter. Sharing a throwback childhood picture of the duo from what looks like a Mangal Pandey shoot, Aamir was happily seen posing for the camera as Ira sits on his lap. The caption that he had written along the picture could be read as “Happy 21st @khan.ira !!! Can't believe you got there so fast! You will always remain at 6 for me! Love you. Papa.” While we couldn’t stop ourselves from going all ‘awww’ on the picture, but Ira’s hilarious reply on her father’s post had made us laugh out loud! Ira had commented, “Of all the great pictures we have together...” and also a “Thank you” as the next comment which was backed by a couple of kisses and heart emojis.
Aamir Khan and Ira Khan share an amazing bond and whenever they get a chance, they pull each other’s leg on social media. On Father’s Day (June 16, 2019), Ira had taken to Instagram and posted an adorable video wherein she was seen teasing her daddy. She had written, “From being ridiculously over-protective to telling me I should be more rebellious... you've been an amazing person to have in my life. You're always there when I need you. People always ask what it's like to be brought up by and around you, some think it would be really cool or exciting... but that would be an understatement. Thanks for being such an educational, stimulating and inspirational figure in my life. I'm passive-aggressive too so I may not tell you how cool I think you are but I definitely think it. And thanks for the great-skin-gene. Happy Father's Day!” (Must Read: Genelia And Riteish Deshmukh Celebrate Riaan's Birthday, Aaradhya, Misha, Adira Attend The Bash)
In an interview with the Deccan Chronicle, Aamir Khan had talked about the time when he couldn’t give enough time to his family and kids, Junaid Khan and Ira Khan. He had stated, “What I lost is a million-dollar question! I started working at the age of 18. Professionally, I got so engaged that I could hardly give time to my Ammi. Yes! A little later in life, after I got married and became the father of Junaid and Ira, I didn’t have much time for them either — owing to my busy schedule. I surely lost out on maintaining my relationships with my Ammi, kids, and wife Reena, and now Kiran as well."
Aamir Khan had also added in the same interview, “I did miss out on a lot, I am sure, but I do not regret it. Simply because both my children Junaid and Ira are very close to me and we share a great relationship even now. If we had not shared a great relationship, then that would have been sad. Ammi also, I do visit her on and off. I’m there for all of them at critical times, but that’s not enough na? I am happy that they all understand me. If our relationship would have been fractured, then I would have felt bad. We all need to maintain a balance between work and personal commitments. I am sure all men and women will resonate with this thought of mine."
Here’s wishing the adorable Azad Rao Khan, a very happy birthday!
