Kiran Rao, happy birthday!

The producer-director-screenwriter turns 39 today. And we hear that hubby Aamir Khan has planned something special on this day. What is it? Read on to find out!

Kiran Rao was born on November 7, 1938 in a Brahmin family in Banglore (now Bengaluru), but was raised in Calcutta (now Kolkata) where she attended the La Martiniere school and Loretto House institute. And it was only after completing her Masters at AJK Mass Communication Research Centre and Jamia Milia Islamia, New Delhi that she entered the glittering world of Bollywood as an assistant director in Lagaan (2001).

It was on the sets of this movie that Kiran met her future husband Aamir Khan and they fell in love. They got married in 2005 and now have a son named Azad Rao Khan.

Talking about the birthday girl, or woman,we are reminded of Dhobi Ghat, a movie she had written and directed under Aamir Khan Productions. And now we hear that she is busy preparing the script of her second movie that’s based in Calcutta.

But of course, Kiran has put all work aside on her birthday. Why? Psssst… ‘coz her hubby has special plans for her! Birdies chirp that Aamir and Kiran are all set for a quick vacation at their pad in Panchgani to celebrate the special occasion! “Their vacation home is dear to both Aamir and Kiran. They love spending time together at their private abode. So, whenever there is an opportunity to go there, neither of them wants to miss out on it,” says our feathered friend. Awww! Cho chweet, no?

So happy birthday, dear Kiran Rao. And may Aamir and Azad fill your day with loads of special moments. Cheers!
