Here’s what she said,"Anyone who is married will tell you marriage has its challenges. And certainly, I have had my share of fights, and we have dealt with things. But actually, Aamir and I have never really fought, it is very strange. We have our disagreements, but we never have big fights."

Reflecting on their relationship, Rao highlighted the foundation of respect and understanding that underpins their interactions. She noted that both she and Aamir approach disagreements with open minds, striving to find common ground rather than engaging in confrontations. She said, "We understand each other quite well, it is just a case of finding the right argument to convince the other person or to be convinced. Our relationship is like that, and we are both not too proud to agree (with each other). And that is one of the advantages of having been in this marriage. We never saw any turbulence of the kind that a lot of people go through. We have had our share of ups and downs, but never anything that I could term even vaguely antagonistic."

Addressing the dynamics of their marriage, Rao acknowledged that while they have encountered ups and downs, their relationship has been devoid of any antagonism or hostility. She credited their ability to communicate effectively and resolve differences respectfully as a key factor in maintaining harmony throughout their marriage.
