While the Instagram feeds of Bollywood actors are flooded with pictures from exotic New Year celebrations around the world, some A-listers chose the warmth of their homes to welcome 2024. Among them was Aamir Khan, his ex-wife Kiran Rao, and veteran actor Saira Banu. Saira shared a touching note on Instagram, detailing how they ushered in the New Year together.
In the heartfelt note, Saira opened up about the enduring bond between Aamir and her late husband, legendary actor Dilip Kumar. She reflected on the unchanging presence of Aamir in their lives, emphasising his significance in their journey. She wrote, “With each turn of the calendar, life continues to unfold, expand, and evolve. As years morph and time advances, a fresh perspective breathes new life into our existence. Amidst this perpetual change, there remains a constant: the presence of those who have shared our life’s journey with us. For Sahib and me, Aamir has been this unchangeable presence.”
Acknowledging the mutual admiration between Dilip Kumar and Aamir Khan, Saira shared, “To this day, Aamir still holds a deep admiration for Dilip Sahib and everything he brought to Indian Cinema. It’s mutual, really. Sahib has always had a genuine appreciation for Aamir’s acting brilliance and how he flawlessly brings characters to life on screen. Personally, I’ve always been moved by Aamir’s artistry – not just in his films, but also in the way he’s embraced the role of a family member in Sahib’s and my life. Aamir has been with me during some really tough times.”
Saira Banu highlighted Aamir Khan’s support during challenging times, recalling moments during the creation of Dilip Kumar’s autobiography, “I remember when I was putting together Dilip Sahib’s autobiography, The Substance And The Shadow, Aamir stepped up in every way imaginable, offering support and lending a helping hand. It’s moments like these that make you truly appreciate the kind of person he is, going beyond just the glitz and glamour of the film industry.”
The note concluded with Saira mentioning the joy of hosting Aamir and his mother, Zeenat Hussain, at her home. She wrote, “Yesterday, I had the pleasure of welcoming Aamir, Kiran, and Zeenat Aapa, who is Aamir’s mother, an absolutely graceful and exceptional lady, into our home. It was wonderful to start the new year with warm company, heartfelt conversations, and a delightful stroll down memory lane with Dilip Sahib. It was a truly wonderful time filled with shared laughter and cherished moments. May this year unfold with the promise of continued relations, shared laughter, and the comfort of knowing that some bonds are destined to remain unchanging, no matter how much the calendar turns. #NewYear #AamirKhan.”
Aamir Khan and family are currently busy with wedding festivities of his daughter Ira Khan, who will get married to fitness trainer Nupur Shikhare on January 3.
