Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan |  About Aamir Khan |  Gallery 1 |  Gallery 2 |  Wallpapers

With his penchant for perfection and professionalism, Aamir Khan is one of the few method actors in Bollywood, who has taken acting to a whole new level. An actor, director, producer, playback singer, a state tennis champion, and mentor to his nephew (Imran Khan), he's all that and more.

Aamir was born in Mumbai to a Muslim family that has been actively involved in the Indian motion picture industry for several decades. His father, Tahir Hussain, was a film producer while his uncle, Nasir Hussain, was a film producer, as well as a director and an actor. Aamir has three siblings Faisal, Farhat, and Nikhat. His cousin Mansoor Khan is a director.

Aamir Khan was first introduced as a child artiste in the 1970's hit Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973). He made his adult acting debut in a role that went quite unnoticed in Ketan Mehta's Holi (1984). His first notable leading role came in 1988 in the film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak which was directed by his cousin Mansoor Khan. This film was a breakthrough commercial success, effectively launching Khan's career as a leading actor. Having the typical 'chocolate hero' looks, he was publicised as a teen idol. He also starred in critically acclaimed film Raakh (1989). Aamir went on to appear in several other films in the late '80s and early '90s: Dil (1990), which became the highest grossing film of the year, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin (1991), Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992), Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993) (for which he also wrote the screenplay), and Rangeela (1995). Most of these films were commercially successful and critically acclaimed. Aamir's other successes include Andaz Apna Apna: the movie was reviewed unfavourably by critics, but has, over the years, gained a cult status.

Aamir's only release in 1996 was the Dharmesh Darshan directed commercial blockbuster Raja Hindustani. In 1997, he co-starred with Ajay Devgan and was paired opposite Juhi Chawla in the film, Ishq, which did well at the box office. In 1998, Khan appeared in the moderately successful Ghulam, for which he sang the hit song, Aati Kya Khandala. John Mathew Matthan's Sarfarosh and Deepa Mehta's Earth 1947 were Khan's releases in 1999. His first release for the new millennium, Mela, in which he acted alongside his real-life brother Faisal Khan, failed at the box office.

In 2001 he appeared in Lagaan, which was also his first home production. The film was a major critical and commercial success, and received a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film at the 74th Academy Awards. The success of Lagaan was followed by the Farhan Akhtar directed, Dil Chahta Hai.

Khan then took a four year break citing personal problems, and returned in 2005 with Ketan Mehta's Mangal Pandey: The Rising. The film didn't fare well at the box office. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's award-winning Rang De Basanti was Khan's first release in 2006. His role was critically acclaimed. Fanaa was his second release in 2006, where he starred opposite Kajol.

In 2007, Aamir took on the role of director for his second home production, Taare Zameen Par. In 2008, Khan appeared in the movie Ghajini that broke many box-office records. In the same year, Khan launched his nephew Imran Khan in another film from his production house, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na.

In 2009, Khan appeared in the commercially and critically acclaimed film, 3 Idiots, as Ranchodas Chanchad. The Rajkumar Hirani directed film went on to become Bollywood's highest grossing film.

In 2010, Aamir released, under his banner, the critically acclaimed film, Peepli Live, that was based in a rural setting. Aamir returned to big screen with his fourth production Dhobi Ghat, written and directed by his wife, Kiran Rao, in 2011. His fifth home production, Delhi Belly, starring his nephew Imran Khan released in July 2011. The film was a commercial and as well as a critical success.

Aamir Khan will be seen in Reema Kagti's Talaash next. The film, in which Aamir plays the role of a cop, is set to release on 1 June 2012. He will be playing a negative character in Yash Raj Films' Dhoom: 3 opposite Katrina Kaif.
