Yes, it’s another production triumph for Aamir Khan with the news that his wife Kiran Rao is expecting their first child together. Rumours abound that Kiran is already three months pregnant, meaning the due date will be somewhere around Christmas or the New Year. The two first met on the set of Lagaan and they have been married now for four years. Aamir already has two children from his first marriage, a son Junaid and a daughter Ira.
Kiran was recently admitted to hospital with a slight fever but recovered quickly. “She was admitted to the fourth floor of the old hospital building,” said a hospital source, “She was in the hospital for a week. During the week long hospitalization, the cause for fever could not be diagnosed, but it was treated. At the time of discharge, the pregnancy was normal and there was no reason to worry.”
Meanwhile, with so many films queueing up for release and producers and distributors looking for the best holiday slots for their movies, it looks like SRK’s My Name is Khan and Aamir’s 3 Idiots will be pushed into the first quarter of 2010, filling the Jan-March period which is seen as one of the annual peaks for cinema admissions.
