The man of many faces, Aamir Khan, is a bankable name of Bollywood. His widely recognized movies have done wonders internationally, but he tries to keep his personal life away from the spotlight. Usually seen in events with his current wife, Kiran Rao, he normally keeps his past away from the gossip mongers.
The reputable Khan was previously married to Reena Dutta, the woman he fell in love with in his adolescence. The actor got betrothed long before he made his Bollywood debut in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. But unfortunately, their marriage only lasted about 16 years. The couple decided to call it quits in a mutual decision.
Karan Johar has a knack for making actors spill their innermost feelings on his show, Koffee With Karan. And the same happened with Khan, who recently opened up about his past relationship and his feelings on the infamous couch. Here’s what the actor had to say about it:
“Reena and I were married for 16 years. And when we broke up, it was traumatic for me, for her, and both our families. But we tried to deal with it as best as we could. It did not mean that I lost respect for Reena, or for that matter, I lost my love for Reena. She is a really wonderful person.”
This shows how mature he is when dealing with his personal life, and their cordial relationship is exemplary for many. He further talked about how his marriage with her shaped him up to be who he is, and that he would always be thankful for the good times.
“I am lucky that I had the opportunity to be with her for 16 years. That enriched me and we grew up together. We were very young when we got married. I give a value to that, and I’m glad that she does too.”
The ex-couple is still sometimes seen at events together, and his ex-wife is seen having a genial relationship with his new family.
