Aamir Khan reveals ex-wife Reena Dutta slapped him, bit his hand during son Junaid's birth

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan graced the streaming comedy show ‘The Great Indian Kapil Show’. The latest episode saw the actor indulge in a wholesome banter and reveal some interesting anecdotes. During one of the segments, Aamir recalled the time his first wife Reena Dutta went into labour during their son Junaid's birth. 

When the host Kapil Sharma asked Aamir if he observes people around him to take notes as an actor, he shared, "It was the day when Junaid was about to be born. Reena Ji was in labour. We were at the hospital. And as a good husband, I practiced some breathing exercises. As the labour got intense, I tried to calm her down with it. But I got slapped, followed by Reena Ji saying, 'Stop this nonsense!'. She was in immense pain. She even bit my hand."

"Later, I realised what was happening around me. I noticed one thing when a person is in immense pain, like what women go through during childbirth. I didn't even plan this. It is just happening to me. I looked at Reena's face and when she was experiencing that pain, normally we think that a person's face would contort with pain but it is not that. When the pain is immense, the expression is of surprise. It is disbelief. A person is in denial. She could not fathom the intensity of her pain. That I noted as an actor. Later I said this to Reena when she came home with Junaid, and she was furious!" added Aamir

Aamir married Reena Dutta in 1986. The two, who share a daughter Ira, and a son Junaid Khan, divorced after 16 years of marriage. He later married filmmaker Kiran Rao and they have a son, Azad Rao Khan. They announced their separation last year, after 15 years of marriage. 

Meanwhile, on the film front, as a producer, Aamir is coming up with 'Lahore 1947', which stars Sunny Deol in the lead role. It is directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. Preity Zinta, Shabana Azmi, Karan Deol, and Ali Fazal are also part of the film.
