Ac­tor Aamir Khan has been on a whirl­wind pro­mo­tional tour of his new film, Se­cret Su­per­star. Last week, the ac­tor-pro­ducer was in Tur­key for three days to pro­mote the film, also star­ring Dan­gal ac­tor Zaira Wasim. On Sun­day (Oc­to­ber 8), Aamir landed in Mum­bai at 6am from Tur­key and by 7am he had al­ready started his pro­mo­tional tour in In­dia. A source says, “Aamir had lined up sev­eral things through the day.”

How­ever, by noon, all planned ac­tiv­ity was shelved for a spe­cial rea­son – it was Aamir’s ex-wife Reena Dutta’s 50th birth­day on that day, and Aamir wanted to do some­thing for her. “Around 12, he got a call from his chil­dren, Ju­naid, 23, and Ira, 20, who told him that they would like to cel­e­brate Reena’s 50th birth­day with a sur­prise party,” says an in­sider.

Aamir im­me­di­ately agreed to be part of it. “He resched­uled a num­ber of com­mit­ments so that he could plan the bash with his kids. He was in­volved in mak­ing the ar­range­ments along with Ju­naid and Ira, and was in touch with them over the phone through­out the day,” says the in­sider.

At the end of the day, a sur­prise party was planned at Reena’s res­i­dence in the evening. “Aamir made sure that things that Reena likes were or­gan­ised. He, along with wife Ki­ran Rao, at­tended the bash. Their fam­ily and friends turned up, too. Since it was her 50th birth­day, ev­ery­one was present to make it more spe­cial,” says the in­sider. Aamir couldn’t be reached for a com­ment.

Reena has been ac­tively in­volved in Paani Foun­da­tion (a not-for-profit com­pany set up by Aamir and Ki­ran in early 2016).
