Kiran Rao on making a film about marriage while her own marital bliss with Aamir Khan was falling apart

In the same interview, Kiran Rao was asked what it was like to make a movie about marriage while marital bliss with Aamir Khan was ending. To this, Kiran said that she never had trauma after her divorce from Aamir and shared that she has had very loving relationships in her life, and continues to have them. She further added:

“A lot of the issues we’ve tackled (in the film), in some way, we’ve all experienced. I’ve been very fortunate because all my relationships have never had trauma. I’ve had very loving relationships in my life, and continue to have them. The idea was to show how, within the constructs of marriage, within socially-normative relationships, you can still find your freedom, you can still find who you are, and you can reach for something that fulfils your potential, and I’ve experienced that myself.”
