Ira Khan, the daughter of Aamir Khan, and her boyfriend, Nupur Shikhare, have announced their engagement. The happy occasion when Nupur publicly proposed to her by getting down on one knee and popping the question, to which Ira reacted enthusiastically, “Yes!”, is said to have taken place at Ironman Italy, where Nupur is presently competing. The engagement news was announced on Instagram. Ira captioned the image as follows: “Popeye: She said yes; Ira: Hehe, I said yes.”
The couple has always been quite open about their love and affection towards one another, never hesitating to post images of the many occasions and events they have spent travelling together, with family and friends, and just basic stuff about life. They are setting significant goals for young lovebirds.
The exact date of their first date is unknown, but Ira made things official in 2021 when she uploaded a photo album on the occasion of “Promise Day” in February, writing: “It’s an honour to make promises with and to you.” The two of them were shown passionately gazing at one another in the majority of the photos.
It is reported that Ira and Nupur started dating a little more than two years ago. They had met Zeenat Hussain, the grandmother of Ira and Aamir Khan, in July of this year, which sparked rumours that they were engaged to be married. It appears that Nupur feels at ease around the rest of Ira’s family as well, because he has been observed spending time with her father, as seen here. In typical “modern family” fashion, Ira invited her parents, Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta, as well as Kiran Rao (Khan’s ex-wife, from whom he had just separated), to her birthday pool party in May of this year. Of course, Nupur was also there.
