Rao recently also attended Aamir and his first wife Reena Dutta’s daughter, Ira Khan’s wedding and gracefully posed with the entire family. Talking about how they effortlessly redefine modern family dynamics, Kiran shared, “I guess we didn’t try very hard for it. It’s very natural ‘We are family’ kind of thing. We just don’t think about it so much. It is what it is. This is us. So people, I think find it unusual but we have always all been close and we continue to be. We don’t think that some sort of a social tag defines our real relationships.”
