Not every day we saw someone praising her husband’s ex-wife, but we must say that filmmaker Kiran Rao has a very different approach, as recently when she appeared on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee With Karan, she went on to praise Aamir Khan’s ex-wife Reena's parenting skills.
Kiran, who herself is a very hands-on mother to her son Azad, who celebrated his birthday recently, praised Reena heartily. You may know that Aamir and Reena raises two children - son Junaid and daughter Ira. And with a two of them, Kiran shares friendly relationship.
"Reena is just wonderful and she has just done such a great job with these kids. They are super kids. I am lucky. I got Aamir and I got a great package deal with this super family," Kiran said during a tete-a-tete. After Aamir separated with Reena in 2002 after 15-years of marriage, the former tied the knot with Kiran in 2005.
In 2011, Aamir and Kiran welcomed Azad Rao Khan via surrogacy. Kiran revealed that when she first met Junaid and Ira, they were quite young. "Ira was a little girl and we became friends instantly. They are very intelligent kids, very perceptive and they quite instinctively knew that I was a friend.
"That I was going to come into their life, more in that capacity... I think I am very lucky. Even if we had not had Azad, I would have felt really complete because of Junaid and Ira," she said.
The episode featuring Aamir and Kiran will air on Sunday at 9 pm on Star World.
