Heaping praise on Aamir’s family, Kiran told Zoom, “I got very lucky that I literally married a family, and a family that I love, I continue to love.” She also opened up about how she continues to love her mother-in-law (Aamir’s mother Zeenat Hussain) and how she is the “apple of my eye”.

Kiran also said that the family set up of Aamir Khan is “unique” and that Reena never left the family after she and Aamir got divorced in 2002. She said, “Reena never left the family. It was very much the same when Aamir and Reena got divorced. The family was highly protective of Reena and when I got married, Reena was a part of the family and we became really good friends because she is an incredible human-being. I absolutely love her, she’s a dear friend.”

She shared, “I am glad that people take away that it is possible to have this crazy family because this is us; this is really who we are.”

For the unversed, Aamir and Kiran tied the knot in 2005 and welcomed their son Azad through surrogacy. The couple announced their decision to divorce after fifteen years of marriage in 2021.
