Biography

Aamir Khan is an Indian film actor, filmmaker, and television talk show host. He was born on March 14, 1965 in Holy Family Hospital in Bandra, Mumbai in India in a conservative Muslim family which has been part of Hindi Film Industry for a long time. Aamir first came on screen as a child artiste in the film Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973); it was not a real part just a blink and miss appearance in the title song of the film.

He later appeared in the art film Holi (1984) along with his friend and later his director Ashutosh Gowariker; the film also starred Naseeruddin Shah. Subsequently, he went on to become the state tennis champion of Maharashtra.

Sometime before his debut film Aamir fell in love with a girl in his neighborhood Reena. Since she belonged to a Hindu family and he from a devout Muslim family, they faced opposition and therefore they married secretly; later they revealed it to the world after QSQT was released.

In 1988 came Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak his first film as a lead; the film was a run away success and he achieved instant stardom (the film is now considered a classic of Hindi Cinema). In his second film Raakh (a small, art film) he did a complete opposite role from the lover boy of his first film; his breakthrough performance in this film bagged him the National Film Award of Special Jury.

Afterwards he signed a few not so good films which failed at the box office. In the year 1990 he delivered the biggest grosser of the year in the form of Dil and since then he has not looked back giving several commercial and critical hits.

His superlative performances include films like Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin (1991), Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander (1992), Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993), Parampara (1993), Andaz Apna Apna (1994), Baazi (1995), Rangeela (1995), Akele Hum Akele Tum (1995), Raja Hindustani (1996), Ishq (1997), Earth (1998), Ghulam (1998), Sarfarosh (1999), Dil Chahta Hai (2001), Lagaan(2001), Mangal Panday(2005), Fanaa (2006) and Rang De Basanti (2006).

Aamir Khan spent five hours every morning for eight consecutive days to do the make-up for a womans get-up in the movie Baazi (1995).

In 2007, he turned director with the film Taare Zameen Par which not only brought him immense critical acclaim but was a huge box office success. Many of his films are considered as cult classics like Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander and Andaz Apna Apna.

He divorced his first wife in December 2001 and married Kiran Rao in December 2005. When Aamir & Salman were approached to sign the contract for Andaaz Apna Apna , each of them wanted more screen time than the other.

Aamir Khan, is a method actor and his range of characterizations remains unparalleled and because of this diversity and his ability to portray different characters believably on screen, today he is regarded as not only one of the biggest superstars but also one of the finest actors of Indian Cinema.

The directors Aamir Khan has worked with say that he spoils them so they find it difficult to work with anyone else in Bollywood.
