Aamir-Khan

Bollywood star Aamir Khan and his wife, filmmaker Kiran Rao, have announced their divorce in a statement issued to the press on Saturday.

The statement read: “In these 15 beautiful years together we have shared a lifetime of experiences, joy and laughter, and our relationship has only grown in trust, respect and love. Now we would like to begin a new chapter in our lives — no longer as husband and wife, but as co-parents and family for each other.

“We began a planned separation some time ago, and now feel comfortable to formalise this arrangement, of living separately yet sharing our lives the way an extended family does.

“We remain devoted parents to our son Azad, who we will nurture and raise together. We will also continue to work as collaborators on films, Paani Foundation, and other projects that we feel passionate about.

“A big thank you to our families and friends for their constant support and understanding about this evolution in our relationship, and without whom we would not have been so secure in taking this leap.

“We request our well wishers for good wishes and blessings, and hope that — like us — you will see this divorce not as an end, but as the start of a new journey.
Thanks and love, Kiran and Aamir,” the joint statement concluded.

Aamir and Kiran, who had been an assistant director to Ashutosh Gowariker on the set of “Lagaan”, got married in 2005. The two welcomed their son Azad Rao Khan in 2011 through surrogacy.

Richa Chadha, who plays the character of Zarina, a fading actress in ‘Inside Edge 3’, feels that it’s the nuances and deeper layers of her character that have kept it relevant over the course of the show’s journey.

The popular series is making a comeback with its third season and her character stands firm on her ground to claim what belongs to her.

The actress shares, “It feels surreal to know that we are already on the third season. As an actor, it has been an incredible journey being Zarina, a layered and nuanced character, non-trapped by conventions which has kept it relevant over the seasons.”

Explaining the arc of her character in the upcoming season, Richa says, “As the game behind the game thickens into the third one, so does Zarina’s urge to claim what is rightfully hers in this man’s world. ‘Inside Edge’ Season 3 is replete with similar elements of drama, suspense and excitement that has defined the series for the audience. But the stakes and proportions are higher, this time.”

‘Inside Edge’ is one of the early web shows from India that opened a whole new dimension of OTT content in the country. The game behind the game gets to a whole new level and Season 3 promises to be filled with more drama and surprises than before.

The third season of ‘Inside Edge’ created by Karan Anshuman and directed by Kanishk Varma, will stream on Prime Video from December 3.

The upcoming episode of ‘Bigg Boss 15’ will see a growing tussle between VIP and non-VIP contestansts.

It starts with Rakhi Sawant asking Nishant Bhat and Pratik Sehajpal to prepare something of her choice but they in turn reply that VIPs have to eat whatever is cooked in the kitchen.

Nishant says: “This is not a restaurant.” Rashami gets annoyed by this behaviour and starts shouting at them for being irresponsible. She says: “This is your duty, so you all need to do it.” On this Nishant says: “Do whatever you want.”

Rashami adds: “This is just the beginning and entire picture is yet to start.” And Nishant says: “Flop”.

Furthermore, the non-VIP contestants finally have the chance to win prize money of Rs 50 lakh by winning the ‘BB Games’.

This tournament has a series of tasks between VIPs and non-VIPs. The non-VIPs will go after their prize money, and the VIPs have to do everything to stop them. In one of the initial tasks, both the teams have to collect more points to get a step ahead in the game.

While Devoleena is the ‘Sanchalak’ for VIPs, Shamita helms this role for the non-VIPs.

As Ritesh tries to steal the other team’s coins, Umar lunges at him and both get knocked down.

Devoleena calls for Umar’s disqualification, but Shamita starts defending him. So, Devoleena stops the game and shouts at Shamita and says there is a foul. She blames Shamita, while she in turn puts the blame on Devoleena, saying: “This entire task was spoiled because of Devoleena.”

‘Bigg Boss 15’ airs on Colors.
