May @sikandarkher get married soon. Love and prayers always! @kirronkhermp #HappyBirthday #Laughter.”

Kirron made her film debut in 1983 in the Punjabi feature film 'Aasra Pyar Da', After this, she took a hiatus from films until 1996. Between 1983 and 1996, she appeared in one film, 'Pestonjee' (1987), in which she acted in a small role alongside Anupam Kher.

Her return to acting came in the mid-1990s, through theatre, with the play 'Saalgirah', written by playwright Javed Siddiqui and directed by Feroz Abbas Khan. Her comeback film was by Shyam Benegal, 'Sardari Begum' (1996), which won her the Special Jury Award at the 1997 National Film Awards.
