Husband-actor Aamir Khan may have his own production house (Aamir Khan Productions, AKP), but that hasn’t stopped director Kiran Rao from launching one of her own. Kiran, who has so far been closely associated with AKP, will now produce films under the banner, titled Kiran Rao.

A source close to the director reveals, “She has an eclectic taste in films and is an ardent supporter of good cinema. Now, she wants to take her passion a step forward by supporting new talent and presenting films with quality content. This banner will not be associated with AKP, but in the future, if they offer her a project to direct, Kiran will be open to doing it. She has complete support from Aamir in this new venture.”

The first film presented by Kiran’s banner will be Anand Gandhi’s Ship Of Theseus (SOT). The source says, “When called for a casual screening of the film, she found it to be stunning and thought that such films need to be promoted and nurtured. Under her new banner, she will present films that deserve a wider platform for release.” The source adds, “Kiran will present SOT this July. She is very proud of the new venture and always likes to be part of the creative process.”

When contacted, Kiran confirms the news, saying, “Yes, I will be launching my own banner and I’m very excited about it.” However, she refuses to divulge any more information.
