There is something so special about love stories that they always manage to strike a chord with our hearts. Filled with happiness, joy, love, care, compassion, arguments, and a lot of tears, love stories are indeed a treat to watch and listen about. However, not just in reel life, even real life stories are equally magical, and trust us on this, they do exist. Over the years, we have seen many celebrity couples, whose love stories are no less than a romantic Bollywood movie as they are full of emotions, drama and laughter.
Talking about actor, Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta's love story, it was nothing short of a fairytale! The ex-couple was neighbours, and they would often stare at each other through their windows. Soon, Aamir fell head-over-heels in love with Reena, and it was only after multiple attempts of expressing his die-hard love for her, he was finally able to woo her. Later, due to religious differences, Aamir and Reena had eloped and tied the knot in 1986. The duo was blessed with two kids, Ira Khan and Junaid Khan. However, in 2002, the couple had separated without any ugly spats and arguments, and they still maintain a cordial relationship with each other.
Aamir Khan and his first wife, Reena Datta welcomed their daughter, Ira Khan, in 1997. Ira enjoys a massive fan-following, and her popularity is second to none. While her fans were waiting for her to make her Bollywood debut, the star kid let their hopes down. Instead of following in the footsteps of her actor-father, Aamir, Ira carved a niche for herself behind the camera as a budding director. For the unversed, it was in 2019, when Ira had made her directorial debut with a theatre production, Euripides' Medea.
While Ira Khan rides high on the professional front, her personal life often hits the headlines. Talking about Ira’s personal life, she was in a serious relationship with musician, Mishaal Kripalani. However, the two broke up in 2020. After her breakup, Ira found solace in the arms of her father, Aamir Khan’s fitness trainer, Nupur Shikhare, and in February 2021, she made her relationship with Nupur official. The gorgeousness is in a live-in relationship with the man of her dreams, Nupur, and the two never miss an opportunity to paint the town red with their mushy romance. It would be an understatement to say that Nupur and Ira are made for each other, and their adorable chemistry speaks volumes about their love for one another.
Ira Khan's life had come crumbling down after her sudden breakup with her ex-boyfriend, Mishaal Kripalani, and she lost faith in love. She dedicated all her attention in the field of direction, and came out with flying colours. During the lockdown, Ira had moved in to her dad, Aamir Khan's house and she met his fitness coach, Nupur Shikhare. The two became friends and started spending quality time with one another. Ira was focused on her fitness and career, and she was not looking for anything else. However, Ira fell in love with Nupur but she maintained secrecy around her love life, and there were no social media PDAs.
If reports are to be believed, Ira and Nupur came close during the lockdown as Ira decided to work on her body and took Nupur's help for the same. However, little did they know that they would fall madly in love with one another. Ever since then, the duo has been inseparable. They started going on vacations together and even spent a romantic getaway with each other at Aamir Khan's farmhouse in Mahabaleshwar. Later, Ira introduced Nupur to her mom, Reena Dutta, and the latter approved of their relationship. Now, Nupur and Ira are pretty serious about each other and they are in a live-in relationship.
Nupur Shikhare is the founder of Fitnessism, a fitness expert and a consultant. Apart from Aamir Khan, Nupur is the personal trainer to India’s first Miss Universe, Sushmita Sen for a decade now. Apart from that, he's a constant support to Ira Khan as he never leaves her side. Though the couple has their ups and downs, they know how to solve the disagreements with maturity.
Ira Khan, who has always been vocal about mental health awareness, had often talked about how she used to suffer from depression and anxiety. Once, she had shared in one of her IG posts how her beau, Nupur's presence had helped her overcome the anxiety attacks. She had stated:
“But while it’s building, talking to Popeye (Nupur) and breathing has helped make it not come to an attack. At least for a few hours. It also depends on if I get re-stressed by another stimulus later. Life’s full of variables. If you’re trying to be mindful, remember to take them all into account.”
Ira Khan shares a warm bond with her beau, Nupur Shikhare's family. On January 24, 2022, taking to her IG handle, she had shared three pictures, in which the celeb kid had worn Nupur's mother's saree. In the pictures, Ira had looked stunning in a white linen saree with a silver border and had paired it with a pink thin strapped blouse.

"Khadi cotton saree from Bombay. Happy Sunday! @pritam_shikhare thank for the saree! Please don't miss the handbags!...#sareesunday #saree #weekend #cotton #sunday #dressup #calvinklein #secondhandfashion."
On the other hand, Nupur also shares a warm bond with Ira's dad, Aamir Khan, and he is often spotted training his future father-in-law in the gym. Apart from that, we have often seen Nupur celebrating every occasion with Ira's family, and his gestures speak volumes about his love and respect for them.
