While Aamir was busy building his career, his personal life went for a complete toss. The actor, who was too be engrossed in his profession, couldn’t take out time for his family. In an interview with News 18, Aamir revealed that he was so lost in his career that his personal life had to pay the price. Sharing details about the same, he said:

“Somewhere I didn’t shoulder my responsibilities. I would start with my parents, my siblings, my first wife – Reena ji, Kiran ji, Reena’s parents, Kiran’s parents, my children, all these people I am talking about are my close ones. When I was 18, when I joined the film industry, I got so absorbed, I wanted to learn so much, I wanted to do so much that I somewhere — today I realise — people who were close to me, I couldn’t give them time the way I wanted to.”


He further revealed that in the course of building relationship with his audience, he had lost the time to build a relationship with his family. In his words:

“I have given all my time to my work and I made that relationship very strong. I thought my family was with me anyway. I just wanted to win the hearts of the audience at the time. And, I got completely lost, so much so that I forgot my family was waiting for me.”

As per Aamir, the biggest regret in his life was when he was not available for his daughter, Ira Khan. Talking about the same, the Raja Hindustani actor stated that when Ira needed him the most, he was unavailable. Calling it his ‘biggest mistake’, Aamir said:

“It’s my biggest mistake (not being able to spend enough time with kids). But I won’t blame my profession for it. Today, Ira is 23 but when she was 4-5, I wasn’t there for her. I was busy with films. Every kid needs their parents because when you are a child you have your own fears and hopes. But when she needed me the most, I wasn’t by her side to hold her hand when she would get scared. And, I know that moment will never come back.”


Aamir Khan had tied the knot with film producer, Reena Dutta on April 18, 1986. And the ex-couple had embraced parenthood for the first time in 1997, with the birth of their daughter, Ira khan. They also had welcomed their son, Junaid Khan, into their lives in 1993.
