In the 5th episode of Karan Johar’s talk show Coffee with Karan 7, conversations turned to family dynamics, modern parenting and more. Kareena Kapoor and Aamir Khan shared their thoughts on balancing personal and professional life. Kareena, talking about her husband Saif’s equation with all his children, said, “Why should it get difficult? Everyone has their time. Saif had a child every ten years, he balances it beautifully, like he says it. And it’s like sometimes we “I’m all together, it’s great. Sometimes if he wants some alone time, like coffee or an hour or two alone with Sara, he’ll always tell me. It will be as if I was sitting with her. I I will be alone, I will relax. I want to give him that special moment. They vacationed together. I think it’s important for them to bond. They have everything but they only have one father. And it’s so important for Saif too to give this time to each of his children. It doesn’t come to mind from the way people talk about it.
Ibrahim and Sara Ali Khan are the children of Saif Ali Khan with his ex-wife and actress Amrita Singh. Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh married in 1991 and after thirteen years the couple divorced in 2004. Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan married in 2012 and they are parents to two sons – Taimur, 5, and Jeh, who which they hosted in February last year.
Aamir Khan also talked about finding the perfect balance. He said on the show, “Over the past few months, I think I’ve changed. I connect a lot more now with my family, my kids, with Reena and Kiran’s parents.” The 57-year-old actor added: “I’ve been through a lot of soul-searching during Covid. I’ve felt since I was 18, I started working. I’m 57 now, in all my adult life through my cinematic journey, all my relationships, I didn’t nurture like I was doing my job. I suddenly realized that I hadn’t spent a lot of time with Ira and Junaid when they were small.
When show host Karan Johar asked Aamir Khan if he regretted not spending enough time with his family, the actor replied, “I would love to. I think I’m a different person now. Today, when I think about it, I would have liked to spend a lot more time with each of them even at the cost of my work. At that time I was in a state of mind where I followed passionate about what I was doing.”
Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao, who have been married for 15 years, announced their split in a statement last July. The actor married Kiran Rao in 2005 and they welcomed their son Azad in 2011, who they continue to co-parent. Aamir Khan was previously married to Reena Dutta, with whom he has two children, daughter Ira and son Junaid.
