Aamir Khan Early life and background
Aamir Hussain Khan was born on March 14, 1965. He belongs to a Muslim family which for an extensive period of time has been associated with Hindi films. Aamir Khan’s father, Tahir Hussain was a producer of Hindi films. At the same time, Nasir Hussain, his uncle, was a renowned film producer, actor, and director. Their family came from Herat in Afghanistan.
Khan was born on 14 March 1965 in Mumbai to Tahir Hussain, a film producer, and Zeenat Hussain. Several of his relatives were members of the Hindi film industry, including his late paternal uncle, the producer-director Nasir Hussain. He has a relation to the cinema of Pakistan as well, being a relative of movie director Syed Sibtain Fazli (Allahabad, 1916-Lahore, 1985), and who’s grandson, Umair Fazli, also a movie director, made the 2016 box-office success Saya e Khuda e Zuljalal, himself being the brother of Ayesha Fazli, the wife of singer-actor Ali Zafar of Pakistan. Outside the movie industry, he is also related to the Indian Islamic scholar, philosopher and politician Abul Kalam Azad through his grandmother. Khan is the eldest of four siblings; he has a brother, the actor Faisal Khan, and two sisters, Farhat and Nikhat Khan (married to Santosh Hegde). His nephew, Imran Khan, is a contemporary Hindi film actor.
As a child actor, Khan appeared on screen in two minor roles. At the age of eight, he appeared in a highly popular song in the Nasir Hussain-directed film Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973), which was the first Bollywood masala film. The following year, he portrayed the younger version of Mahendra Sandhu’s character in his father’s production Madhosh. Khan attended J.B. Petit School for his pre-primary education, later switching to St. Anne’s High School, Bandra till the eighth grade, and completed his ninth and tenth grade at the Bombay Scottish School, Mahim. He played tennis in state level championships, and became a state-level champion. He has professed he was “much more into sports than studies”. He completed his twelfth grade from Mumbai’s Narsee Monjee College. Khan described his childhood as “tough” due to the financial problems faced by his father, whose film productions were mostly unsuccessful. He said, “There would be at least 30 calls a day from creditors calling for their money.” He was always at risk of being expelled from school for non-payment of fees.
At the age of sixteen, Khan was involved in the experimental process of making a 40-minute silent film, Paranoia, which was directed by his school friend Aditya Bhattacharya. The film was funded by the filmmaker Shriram Lagoo, an acquaintance of Bhattacharya, who provided them with a few thousand rupees. Khan’s parents did not want him to make films, wishing that he would instead pursue a “steady” career as an engineer or doctor. For that reason, the shooting schedule of Paranoia was a clandestine one. In the film, he played the lead role alongside actors Neena Gupta and Victor Banerjee, while simultaneously assisting Bhattacharya. He said that the experience of working on it encouraged him to pursue a career in film.
Khan subsequently joined a theatre group called Avantar, where he performed backstage activities for over a year. He made his stage debut with a small role in the company’s Gujarati play, Kesar Bina, at Prithvi Theatre. He went on to two of their Hindi plays, and one English play, which was titled Clearing House. After completing high school, Khan decided to discontinue studying, choosing instead to work as an assistant director to Nasir Hussain on the Hindi films Manzil Manzil (1984) and Zabardast (1985).
Personal Quotes (11)
Every film I do means a lot to me. The failure of Mela, definitely made a difference to me. I am not comfortable with the idea of my films not releasing to their full potential.
Film making is like fighting a war with leadership at the front.
I found that what happened 150 years ago was happening again with Americans entering other countries and exploiting them but pretending they were doing a favor. It was this contemporary feel that attracted me.
My son is a harsh critic.
I enjoy the love I receive from my fans and my audience. But I think I know what is real for me and what is not.
A star needs to have style. Unfortunately I have very little. But Salman [Khan] has it all.
If a star comes close to holding the sway that Madhuri Dixit or Kajol did, it is Rani Mukerji. She pays attention to her work, has matured and become experienced with time.
Rani is one of my closest friends, we can talk about anything.
Rani [Mukerji] is a close friend. She is someone I am extremely fond of. We share a very good relationship. We can depend on each other.
I have no objections to film awards per se. I just feel that if I don’t value a particular film award, then I won’t attend it either. Apart from the national award, I don’t see any other award ceremony that I should give value to. My personal experience about these award ceremonies is that I don’t trust them. I have no faith in them so I would prefer to stay away.
When you need something with intensity, the mind kicks in and makes it possible.
Aamir Khan Age
Aamir Khan 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 the Hindi Film Industry for a long time.
Beginning of Aamir Khan’s career
Aamir Khan began his journey as an actor when he was a child and acted in the film Yaadon Ki Baaraat in 1973. This film was directed and produced by his uncle Nasir Hussain and is one of the most remembered films of the 1970s. Next year, he also acted in Madhosh. After a period of 10 years, Aamir made his debut as a professional actor in the film Holi directed by Ketan Mehta. The film released in 1984. However, the character of Aamir Khan in this film went somewhat overlooked.
How Aamir Khan became a Superstar
Aamir experienced his first success when he acted in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak in 1988. The director of this film was Mansoor Khan, who is his cousin and son of Nasir Hussain. He played the male lead role in this film which won him the first National Film Award (Special Jury Award). Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak was a blockbuster during that time which helped Aamir start his career as a promising actor in Hindi films. The next year, Raakh was released which also had Aamir in the lead role. This film also became popular but not like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. Aamir won the National Film Award (Special Jury Award) for his admirable performance in this film. For his appearance, he is often dubbed as the “Chocolate Hero” of Indian cinema.
Subsequently, Aamir Khan acted in a number of films in the late 1980s and early 1990s such as Dil (1990), which was the top grosser in 1990, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992), Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin (1991), Rangeela (1995), and Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993). Khan was the screenwriter for the film Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke. He received his first Filmfare Award for Best Actor for acting in Raja Hindustani in 1996. He received the second award in this category for Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India which was released in 2001. The film was nominated for the Academy Award in the category of the Best Foreign Language Film and was the third Indian film to be nominated in this category. This was the first initiative of his production house, Aamir Khan Productions.
The majority of films in which he acted are commercial successes and grossed big revenues. His other achievements include Andaz Apna Apna in which he acted with Salman Khan, another superstar of Bollywood. When the film released, the critics did not give it a positive review. However, with the passage of time, the movie has achieved the position of a cult movie.
Aamir Khan took a four-year gap from acting after Lagaan in 2001. He returned to Stardom when he played the lead role in Mangal Pandey: The Rising in 2005. He subsequently acted in Rang De Basanti (2006) for which he received a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor.
In 2007, he directed his first film Taare Zameen Par and this film won him the Filmfare Award for Best Director. The next year, Ghajini was released and it was the top grosser in 2008. The comedy film 3 Idiots in 2009 was a major breakthrough in his career, which was the top revenue earning Hindi film in history. It was simply an unparalleled feat. Other notable films in which he acted are Ishq (1997) with Ajay Devgan, Juhi Chawla, and Kajol, Ghulam (1998), in which film he sung as a playback singer, Sarfarosh (1999), Dil Chahta Hai (2000) with Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, and Preity Zinta, and Fanaa (2006) with Kajol.

1984–1989: Debut and career challenges
In addition to assisting Hussain, Khan acted in documentaries directed by the students of FTII, Pune. The director Ketan Mehta noticed Khan in those films, and he offered him a role in the low-budget experimental film Holi (1984). Featuring an ensemble cast of newcomers, Holi was based on a play by Mahesh Elkunchwar, and dealt with the practice of ragging in India. The New York Times said that the film was “melodramatic” but “very decently and exuberantly performed by the nonprofessional actors”. Khan’s role was that of a rowdy college student, an “insignificant” role that was described by CNN-IBN as “lack[ing] in finesse”.
Holi failed to garner a broad audience, but Nasir Hussain and his son Mansoor signed him as the leading man in Mansoor’s directorial debut Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) alongside Juhi Chawla. The film was a tale of unrequited love and parental opposition, with Khan portraying Raj, a “clean-cut, wholesome boy-next-door”. The plot was a modern-day take on classic tragic romance stories such as Layla and Majnun, Heer Ranjha, and Romeo and Juliet. Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak proved to be a major commercial success, catapulting both Khan and Chawla to stardom. It received seven Filmfare Awards including a Best Male Debut trophy for Khan. The film has since attained cult status, with Bollywood Hungama crediting it as a “path-breaking and trend setting film” for Indian cinema. Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak was a milestone in the history of Hindi cinema, setting the template for Bollywood musical romance films that defined Hindi cinema in the 1990s.
The year 1989 saw the release of Raakh, a crime thriller from Aditya Bhattacharya that was filmed before the production of Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. The film tells the story of a young man avenging the rape of his ex-girlfriend (played by Supriya Pathak). Despite a poor reception at the box office, the film was critically acclaimed. Khan was awarded a National Film Award – Special Jury Award / Special Mention for his performances in both Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Raakh. Later that year, he reunited with Chawla for the romantic comedy Love Love Love, a commercial failure.
1990–2001: Successful career and acting break
Khan had five film releases in 1990. He found no success in the sport film Awwal Number with Aditya Pancholi and Dev Anand, the mythological thriller Tum Mere Ho, the romance Deewana Mujh Sa Nahin and the social drama Jawani Zindabad. However, the Indra Kumar-directed romantic drama Dil (opposite Madhuri Dixit) was a major success. A tale of parental opposition to teenage love, Dil was highly popular among the youth, and emerged as the highest-grossing Hindi film of the year. He followed this success with a leading role alongside Pooja Bhatt in the romantic comedy Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin (1991), a remake of the Hollywood film It Happened One Night (1934), which proved to be a box office hit.
Khan appeared in several other films in the early 1990s, including 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 successful critically and commercially. Other successes include Andaz Apna Apna
, co-starring Salman Khan. At the time of its release, the movie was reviewed unfavorably by critics, but over the years has gained cult status. Less successful films included Isi Ka Naam Zindagi
(1992) and Daulat Ki Jung
In 1993, Khan also appeared in Yash Chopra’s Parampara. Despite having an ensemble cast which also included Sunil Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Raveena Tandon and Saif Ali Khan, the film failed to find a wide audience and became a critical and commercial failure. Khan was also due to appear in Time Machine, a science-fiction film also starring Rekha, Raveena Tandon, Naseeruddin Shah and Amrish Puri. The movie was directed by Shekhar Kapur. However, due to financial constraints, the film was shelved and remained unreleased.
Khan continued to act in just one or two films a year, then an unusual trait for a mainstream Hindi cinema actor. His only release in 1996 was the Dharmesh Darshan-directed commercial blockbuster Raja Hindustani, in which he was paired opposite Karisma Kapoor. The film earned him his first Filmfare Award for Best Actor, after seven previous nominations, and went on to become the biggest hit of the year, as well as the third-highest grossing Indian film of the 1990s. It was the biggest hit of his career up until that point. Adjusted for inflation, Raja Hindustani is the fourth highest-grossing film in India since the 1990s. Khan’s career seemed to hit a plateau at this point of time, and most of the films to follow for the next few years were only partially successful. In 1997, he co-starred alongside Ajay Devgn, Kajol and Juhi Chawla in Ishq, which performed well at the box office. The following year, Khan appeared in the moderately successful Ghulam, for which he also did playback singing.
John Mathew Matthan’s Sarfarosh, Khan’s first release in 1999, was also moderately successful, gaining an above average box office verdict. The film and Khan’s role in it were highly appreciated by movie critics, as was his role in Deepa Mehta’s Canadian-Indian art house film Earth (1998). Set during the 1947 partition of India, Earth was internationally acclaimed, by critics such as Roger Ebert, with Khan’s negative portrayal of Dil Nawaz (“Ice Candy Man”) considered his best performance up until then. His first release for the new millennium, Mela, in which he acted alongside his real-life brother Faisal Khan, was both a box office and critical bomb.
He produced and starred in Lagaan (2001), which was a major critical and commercial success, and received a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film at the 74th Academy Awards. Additionally, the film gathered critical acclaim at several international film festivals, in addition to winning numerous Indian awards, including a National Film Award. Khan also won his second Filmare Award for Best Actor.
The success of Lagaan was followed by Dil Chahta Hai later that year, in which Khan co-starred with Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna, with Preity Zinta playing his love interest. It also starred Sonali Kulkarni and Dimple Kapadia. The film was written and directed by the then-debutant Farhan Akhtar. The film won the 2001 Filmare Critics Award for Best Film. Khan then took a four-year break from Bollywood after divorce from his wife Reena Dutta.
2005–2007: Acting comeback and directorial debut
Khan made a comeback in 2005 with Ketan Mehta’s Mangal Pandey: The Rising playing the title role of the real-life sepoy and martyr who helped spark the Indian Rebellion of 1857. The film was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s award-winning Rang De Basanti was Khan’s first release in 2006. His performance was critically acclaimed, earning him a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor and various nominations for Best Actor. The film went on to become one of the highest-grossing films of the year, and was selected as India’s official entry to the Oscars. Although the film was not shortlisted as a nominee for the Oscar, it received a nomination for BAFTA Award for Best Film Not in the English Language at the BAFTA Awards in England. In his next movie, Fanaa (2006), Khan co-starred with Kajol. Playing the role of a Kashmiri insurgent terrorist, his second negative role after Earth, the role offered him creative possibilities to try something different.Fanaa became one of the highest-grossing Indian films of 2006.
His 2007 film, Taare Zameen Par, was also produced by him and marked his directorial debut. The film, which was the second offering from Aamir Khan Productions, starred Khan in a supporting role as a teacher who befriends and helps a dyslexic child. It opened to excellent responses from critics and audiences. Khan’s performance was well-received, although he was particularly applauded for his directing. Khan received the Filmfare Awards for Best Director and Best Film of 2007, as well as the National Film Award for Best Film on Family Welfare. The film won other awards, including the 2008 Zee Cine Awards and 4th Apsara Film & Television Producers Guild Awards. The film was initially acclaimed as India’s official entry for the 2009 Academy Awards Best Foreign Film.
2008–present: Resurgence and global success
In 2008, Khan appeared in the movie Ghajini. The film was a major commercial success and became the highest-grossing Bollywood movie of that year. For his performance in the film, Khan received several Best Actor nominations at various award ceremonies as well as his fifteenth Filmfare Best Actor nomination.
In 2009, Khan appeared in the commercially and critically acclaimed film 3 Idiots as Ranchodas Chanchad. 3 Idiots became the highest-grossing Bollywood film ever at the time, breaking the previous record set by Ghajini, which also starred Khan. 3 Idiots was one of the few Indian films to become a success in East Asian markets such as China and Japan, at the time making it the highest-grossing Bollywood film ever in overseas markets. It was expected to be the first Indian film to be officially released on YouTube, within 12 weeks of releasing in theatres on 25 March 2010, but finally got officially released on YouTube in May 2012. The film won six Filmfare Awards (including Best Film and Best Director), ten Star Screen Awards, eight IIFA Awards, and three National Film Awards. Overseas, it won the Grand Prize at Japan’s Videoyasan Awards,and was nominated for Best Outstanding Foreign Language Film at the Japan Academy Awards and Best Foreign Film at China’s Beijing International Film Festival.
Khan has been credited with opening up the Chinese markets for Indian films. His father Tahir Hussain previously had success in China with Caravan (1971), but Indian films declined in the country afterwards, before Aamir Khan opened up the Chinese market for Indian films in the early 21st century. His Academy Award nominated Lagaan (2001) became the first Indian film to have a nationwide release there. When 3 Idiots released in China, the country was only the 15th largest film market, partly due to China’s widespread pirate DVD distribution at the time. However, it was the pirate market that introduced 3 Idiots to most Chinese audiences, becoming a cult hit in the country. It became China’s 12th favourite film of all time, according to ratings on Chinese film review site Douban, with only one domestic Chinese film (Farewell My Concubine) ranked higher. Aamir Khan gained a large growing Chinese fanbase as a result. After 3 Idiots went viral, several of his other films, such as Taare Zameen Par (2007) and Ghajini (2008), also gained a cult following. By 2013, China grew to become the world’s second largest film market (after the United States), paving the way for Aamir Khan’s Chinese box office success, with Dhoom 3 (2013), PK (2014) and especially Dangal (2016).
It was reported that Khan had disagreements with director Reema Kagti over the issue of his 2012 film Talaash, causing significant delays in the film’s release. However, Khan said that the claims were baseless. The film was a hit in India and overseas markets.
Khan’s next venture was Dhoom 3 with Yash Raj Films. He has considered this to be the most difficult role of his career. The film was released worldwide on 20 December 2013. Box Office India declared Dhoom 3 “the biggest hit of 2013” after two days of release, with the film grossing ₹2 billion (US$28 million) worldwide in three days and ₹4 billion (US$56 million) worldwide in ten days, making it the highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time.
In 2014, Khan appeared as the eponymous alien in Rajkumar Hirani’s comedy-drama PK
. It also starred Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani and Sanjay Dutt in pivotal roles.] The film received critical acclaim and emerged as the highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time (the fourth time Khan achieved this feat). Khan’s performance was unanimously praised by critics including Tamil leading actor Vijay was impressed by Aamir’s perfection and dedication and reportedly enjoyed the film with his family on Christmas eve. Raja Sen called the film a “triumph” and said: “Aamir Khan is exceptional in PK,
creating an irresistibly goofy character and playing him with absolute conviction.” The film won two Filmfare Awards, and in Japan received a top award at the 9th Tokyo Newspaper Film Awards event held by Tokyo Shimbun
Khan produced and starred in Dangal (2016), directed by Nitesh Tiwari, with Khan portraying wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat. He played him at several different ages, from 20 to 60 years old, gaining 30 kg and weighing 98 kg to play the older Phogat, then losing the weight to play the younger version. The film received positive reviews from critics and emerged as the highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time domestically, surpassing PK, making it the fifth time Khan had achieved this feat. Dangal also became an overseas blockbuster success in China, where it was the 16th highest-grossing film of all time, the 8th highest-grossing foreign film, and the highest-grossing non-Hollywood foreign film. Worldwide, it became the fifth highest-grossing non-English language film of all time, earning Khan one of the highest salaries for a non-Hollywood actor, at $42 million. Dangal has also been watched over 350 million times on Chinese streaming platforms. Dangal won him two more Filmfare Awards (Best Film and his third Best Actor award)
In October 2017, Khan starred in a supporting role in his production Secret Superstar, with his Dangal co-star Zaira Wasim playing the lead role. See Film production and direction section below for further details on the film.
Khan is currently filming Thugs of Hindostan, working with Amitabh Bachchan. The film is being directed by Dhoom 3‘s director Vijay Krishna Acharya. It will also star Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif. Shaikh also appeared in Dangal while Kaif appeared alongside Khan in Dhoom 3.
