Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla elope and get married. Well it will be interesting to know that Aamir in real life also eloped and tied the knot. The actor who shot to instant fame with QSQT ran away with his childhood sweetheart, Reena Dutta. Although the actor was already married before making hit Bollywood debut in 1988 with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, the actor proposed his love, Reena (next-door neighbour) the day he turned 21.
Aamir is a Muslim and Reena was a Hindu so the family drama was expected. Thus, Aamir in the typical filmy style eloped with Reena and got married in 1986. Things changed with time and after 16 years of marriage, the couple parted ways. While Reena is a single mom to his 2 kids, Aamir went ahead to tie the knot with Kiran Rao whom he met on the sets of Lagaan.
