So we were sitting together, and I generally asked her, Kiran, you know me the best, can you tell me such things — given that I am going through a phase where I’m trying to improve as a person, trying to focus on my weaknesses — can you tell me a few things that you feel are my weaknesses and drawbacks on which I should focus on? She gave me a list of ten to 12 points that I sat and wrote as well. So that was my life’s best birthday gift,” “The points that she gave me, they were so on point, I wondered, ‘Yes, she’s actually right! I am like this; these are my drawbacks.’ That’s why I feel it’s the best birthday gift of my life. She pointed out my weakness with honesty and love; no one tells you what she told me. Uss baat ki main izzat bhi karta hoon aur mera pyaar badd gaya hai unke liye (I respect it and my love for her has further increased,)” the Laal Singh Chaddha actor added. Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao were married for 15 years before they announced their separation in July 2021
