Here is an interesting fact! Did you know that before the Kiran Rao – Aamir Khan marriage, the ever-so-pretty Kiran Rao was assisting Ashutosh Gowarikar while he was shooting Lagaan in the year 2001. The film had an ensemble cast and had Aamir Khan and Gracy Singh as the leads. It was India’s official entry to the Oscar’s that year and Producer Aamir Khan and Director Ashutosh Gowarikar took home eight National Film Awards, nine Filmfare Awards, nine Screen Awards[66] and ten IIFA Awards. This was how Aamir Khan first met Kiran Rao who was assisting the director. They met and unlike in the movies, love didn’t blossom in one magical moment. They took time and got to know each other for a while before they started to date. It was around that time that Aamir got separated from his first wife and actress, Reena Dutta. The couple got divorced with mutual consent in the year 2002, ending their two decade old relationship.

Three years after his divorce from his first wife Reena, Aamir Khan married Kiran Rao on 28th of December, 2005. The marriage was formally registered under Special Marriage Act of the Indian Marriage Law in Mumbai. The couple later had a private function for friends and family at Aamir’s farm house in Panchgani.

Aamir had later said that he wanted to keep his relationship private until he was sure of himself and that he and Kiran had been living together for more than a year before they finally decided on getting married. Kiran on her part says she was enamoured by the star and shares her side of the love story. As a teenager Kiran had seen Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak which starred Juhi Chawla and Aamir in the leads on the new VCR her family had purchased. She says, ‘I loved him in it and really enjoyed the film more. I thought to myself “What a sweet film, what great music, acting and what a cute guy!’”

She says not in her wildest dreams had she imagined that years later she would actually date and later marry and have kids with that “cute guy”. In those days, everyone knew about Aamir was the perfectionist and a good actor. That is all she knew until she actually meet him while working for Lagaan.

Love In The Times Of Lagaan

One day Kiran got an offer from AKF (Aamir Khan Films which she now manages and has been the driving force behind AKF productions like Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na which featured Aamir Khan’s nephew and the current heartthrob of Bollywood, Imran Khan and modern masterpieces like Taare Zameen Par) for working on Lagaan and she immediately agreed as Ashutosh Gowariker and Aamir Khan combo was too good to miss. She was pretty sure that she wouldn’t get to meet the “superstar” knowing too well how stars and Bollywood in general works. She was in for a big surprise while they were on a location recce in Bhuj and got to know that Aamir too was traveling with them. She recollects that he was this simple, laidback guy who interacted with everyone in the bus. “He had no “filmi” persona about him at all,’ she says and his down to earth attitude really appealed to her.

Aamir on the other hand remembers their word-building games, which they used to play on the sets of Lagaan. He thought of her as a nice, hard working young girl and even confessed that the earrings which his character Bhuvan wore in Lagaan were actually Kiran’s and that he had borrowed them from her!
