Mumbai: This Diwali seems to have played a pivotal role in bridging the gap between estranged brothers Aamir and Faisal Khan. And Kiran Rao acted as a catalyst in making this possible.
The superstar had thrown a lavish Diwali bash which was attended by the who’s who of Bollywood including filmmakers John Mathew Mathan, Raj Kumar Hirani, his `3 Idiots` co-stars Sharman Joshi and Madhavan. And among the guest list were Faisal and his better half.
Talking to a tabloid, a source said, “Aamir has asked Faisal and his wife to move back into his house so that the brothers can be closer with their mother."
The two brothers along with their respective wives had a gala time playing cards the whole night.
“The four of them (Aamir, his wife Kiran Rao, Faisal and his wife) chatted for hours and later played cards. All the guests were commenting on how comfortable the two brothers and their wives seemed together,” the source added.
The Aamir-Faisal relationship ran into trouble when the younger brother thought his older sibling was trying to work against his interests. Faisal was also reportedly suffering from schizophrenia that eventually landed him in a rehab. Faisal was also in news for showing reluctance when Aamir demanded his custody post his treatment.
The Khan brothers had starred in 2000 Box Office disaster `Mela`.
Here’s hoping the two brothers reunite for good!
