    When Kiran Rao was upset with Aamir

    The promos of Aamir Khan’s television show have been getting a positive response from all those who’ve had a dekko, sources reveal that apparently Aamir had to face some flak for it initially on the domestic front itself. The promos that are currently on air, feature the making of the show in the conceptualisation stages and most of this action takes place at Aamir’s residence which features rather prominently. And according to sources, it was this bit that upset wife filmmaker Kiran Rao, as she guards her privacy and home front very fiercely.

    Explaining further, a source says, “Since the time Azad has been born, Aamir has usually been conducting all his meetings at his residence. All pre-production work, research meetings have been happening at his Bandra residence. So when the team decided to make promos of the making of (behind -the-scenes) footage, it became integral for the team that they showcase the house too. But when Kiran learned about it, she got very annoyed with her house being showcased on national television.”

    Apparently Aamir’s decision to go ahead with his house being featured despite the fact that he himself always insists on keeping his house away from the limelight, made Kiran see red. “Yes, she was very upset initially, and it was only after much coaxing by Aamir that she relented. It was only after he intervened and explained how important it was to him and how passionately the team felt about this, did she finally agree, though reluctantly,” adds the insider.

    Another source however reveals that she agreed but on one condition, that certain portions of the house not be featured at all, including Azad’s nursery. “It’s a big step for both Aamir and Kiran to let the cameras enter the domain of their home, but considering how passionately everyone in the team felt about it, Kiran finally got manaoed, and she supposedly said it’s only because she herself believes strongly in the message that the show will get across!” the source added.
