Superstar Aamir Khan turned a year younger on Wednesday and the star made the best of the day by spending his two days of granted leave with family. Taking a break from ongoing shoot of Thugs of Hindostan, the star was greeted at the airport by wife and director-producer, Kiran Rao. Khan seemed keen to put away his age by putting on a fresh show of display of affection before the shutter bugs. This is a rather new act for the actor who has been married for 13 years with Rao.
Aamir Khan cutting the cake before the media on his birthday has been a common norm but doing it with his wife alongside him is a first. The couple who live a relatively low life were seen being cozy before the paparazzi. At the airport when Kiran meet him, the couple shared a kiss for the cameras and repeated it at Aamir’s residence during the cake-cutting.
The recent burst of PDA is a thing of wonderment for the down to earth couple who, for most part of their lives have remained secretive about their private life, choosing to keep the Bollywood buzz away as much as possible. But during the media interaction on Wednesday, the couple held hands and looked all cute.
We wonder if recent rumours of Aamir getting too cozy with his second time co-star Fatima Sana Shaikh may be the reason why the couple is putting up the PDA. It can be well read as an effort by the couple to paint a picture of perfection during supposed troubling times.
For Kiran Rao, the gossip mill stories may get a bit too familiar for she too had met Aamir during the shoot of Lagaan in 2001 when he was married. To Reena Dutta. He was said to have courted her after that while still married and with two children. Recent reports of the episode being repeated and the couple’s attempt to make things look normal shows that even the sanest of Bollywood couples cannot get away from being scratched by rumours.
