Did you know Salman Khan helped Aamir Khan to cope up with his divorce from Reena Dutta
Aamir Khan had once recalled how he was at his lowest phase in life after divorce from Reena Datta and also how Salman Khan had helped him overcome it
Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and his first wife, Reena Datta, had 16 years long marital life. It was said, that Aamir and Reena were neighbours and used to stare at each other from their windows.
According to reports, Aamir was the first to fall in love and tried many times to display his love for Reena, only to face refusals.
Later, when Aamir had stopped approaching and wooing her, Reena reciprocated his love. Aamir was madly in love with Reena that he had reportedly written her a love letter with his blood. Due to their religious difference, Aamir and Reena had eloped and tied the knot on April 18, 1986.
After 16 years, in 2002, Aamir and Reena got a divorce due to personal reasons. However, their divorce was a mutual one, without arguments, and they still share a great relationship.
In 'Koffee With Karan', Aamir had remembered how he was at his lowest phase in life after divorce from Reena and how his friend and co-star Salman Khan had helped him then.
Salman entered Aamir's life when he was at the lowest, Aamir said, “Salman walked into my life when I was at my lowest. I had gone through a divorce with my wife. But later we bumped into each other and he expressed his wish to meet me. We met again and drank together and we connected. And it began as a genuine friendship and it has only grown.”
During the same show, Aamir called his divorce with Reena 'traumatic' for the couple and their families. Aamir had said, "Reena and I were married for 16 long years. When we split up, it was traumatic for us and our families. We tried to deal with the situation as best as we could. Reena and I did not lose love or respect for each other post our split."
Aamir also showed his love and respect for his ex-wife Reena and thanked her for enriching him in many ways, “I thank Reena for allowing me to be in her life. She has enriched me in many ways. We were very young when we married. It did not mean that I lost respect for Reena, or for that matter, I lost my love for Reena. She is a really wonderful person. We were very young when we got married. I give a value to that and I'm glad that she does too."
