Fans have long wondered about the beginnings of Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan’s romance. Did it spark during filming, leading to Aamir’s first divorce? In a recent interview, Kiran finally addresses the rumours!

Before Aamir Khan entered a relationship with Kiran Rao, he was previously married to Reena Dutta. Their marriage came to an end in 2002, just a year after the release of Lagaan.

Kiran’s role as an assistant director on Lagaan sparked speculation, with many wondering if her involvement with Aamir contributed to his divorce from Reena.

However, Kiran clarifies that this timeline is completely inaccurate. In her interview, she reveals, “Lots of people think that Aamir and I connected on Lagaan, we didn’t.”

“Many believe Aamir and I first connected during the making of Lagaan, but that’s not true at all. Our relationship began during the filming of Swades, while he was preparing for Mangal Pandey. It was after collaborating on a few Coke commercials with Ashutosh Gowariker that Aamir and I rekindled our connection, around 3 to 4 years post-Lagaan.

Kiran further adds,

During Lagaan, I hardly interacted with him and was involved with someone else. When Aamir and I officially started dating in 2004, there was speculation that our relationship began during Lagaan and led to his divorce, but that’s simply not the case.”
