I am not a hands-on dad on a daily basis : Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan, who recently celebrated his son Azad’s birthday says his wife Kiran is a hands-on mother and is enjoying motherhood.

The baby was born through IVF to a surrogate mother on December 1. The popular actor whose film ‘Talaash’ released last Friday, says due to his work commitments he does not get to spend enough time with his son. “I am not a hands-on dad on a daily basis.

My responsibilities towards work don’t allow me to do that. But I really like to spend time with him. He is a real joy. He is a very happy child and good natured.

Aamir said.

Kiran is a hands-on mother. She is enjoying motherhood and that’s what she wants to do. Once in a while I do try and give her a break but she brushes it aside.

he said.

Aamir also says that he does not consult Kiran Rao about the films that he does.

No, I don’t consult her. When I am not sure I like to ask her. I like to keep it as a surprise. This she and I both consciously do. So when she watches the first cut, she is a fresh audience, she doesn’t know about the script, she doesn’t know what to expect. Sometimes I ask her to sit in for a narration.
