Since the announcement of Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao’s divorce, angry fans have gathered to place the blame for the split on actor Fatima Sana Sheikh. The Dangal actor became a top trend on Twitter, with fans of the couple taking to the starlet’s Instagram to leave comments such as, “Congratulations for Aamir’s divorce.”

Sheikh worked alongside Khan in the 2016 film Dangal, in which the actor played her father. Rumours of the two being romantically involved spread after they starred in Khan’s 2018 film Thugs of Hindostan together as well. Both parties are yet to make a comment on the matter. 

Khan and Rao, who tied the knot in 2005, issued a joint statement regarding the matter. “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,” The Indian Express quoted them as saying.

The statement added that Aamir and Kiran separated “some time ago” and added that despite living apart, the couple will “nurture and raise” their son Azad Rao Khan together. “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,” the statement read.
