Kiran Rao, the better half of actor Aamir Khan, is in the eye of a storm over her remarks on the rising intolerance in the country. Now reports trace Kiran Rao’s link with Telangana region.
Kiran Rao and actor Aditi Rao Hydari are maternal first cousins. Hydari’s maternal grandfather, J Rameshwar Rao was the Raja of Wanaparthy, a town in Mahbubnagar district while her fraternal grandfather Sir Akbar Hydari was the Prime Minister of Hyderabad State.
The cousins have been rarely seen in public but share a cordial relationship. This was revealed by Hydari in an interview to a magazine in 2012 that they were unable to meet frequently due to “hectic schedules”.
