Aamir Khan opened up about his parenthood
Aamir Khan who turned 52 this Tuesday, celebrated his birthday at his Bandra residence! The actor who delivered a blockbuster recently, opened up about his parenthood!
Aamir revealed how differently he behaved post the birth of his three kids Junaid, Ira and Azad Rao. He also shared that both his wives, ex-wife Reena Dutta and his current wife Kiran Rao handled all the responsibilities of the kids!
He said, “Yeah, it was different. The first child gets the most attention. When it’s your first child, you’re nervous, you’re extra cautious, extra involved. When Junaid was born in 1993 I shot only for 36 days that year. For 328 days I was with him. That excitement, that nervousness wasn’t there with Ira nor with Azad. Haan theekh hai ro raha hai, roney do. With the first child it’s arrey roh raha hai, kya hogaya?” (sic)
He added, “Also, I’ve to admit I’m not someone who’s fully there mentally most of the time. Kiran is a hands-on mother. Reena was also a hands-on mother. I was not such a hands-on father except for Junaid during that first one year.” (sic)
He then explained the reason why he never looked after the kids. He said, “Hands-on is when you’re sharing equal responsibilities with your partner in bringing up the child. Honestly, I’m not sharing that. I’m afraid I’m a self-obsessed person. Self-obsessed means I’m more in my work, in my own world. And I’m more excited about the things I’m doing, the world that I’m in. You can give it a fancy word but the bottom line is that I’m obsessed with my own life.” (sic)
