Aamir Khan - Family and Filmography

Aamir Khan is one of the most powerful and popular actors of Bollywood. He has made a name for himself as an Indian film actor, director and producer. He has acted in over 40 movies and has won several awards including the Padma Shri and the Padma Bhushan from the Government of India. He is known for his perfection that he is often referred to as Mr Perfectionist in the film industry. Aamir is involved with many humanitarian and political causes. He recently made his debut on TV with the talk show Satyamev Jayate that airs on various channels within Star Network along with Doordarshan's DD National. This show aims at bringing out social issues in front of public and urge them to take action. Aamir Khan is extremely choosy with movies. He is often referred to as ‘Tom Hanks of India' and the ‘Indian Sean Penn'. He is one of those actors who believe in acting one film at a time. He is also one actor who stays away from most award functions as he feels that Indian film awards lack credibility. He is also said to have declined the invitation to have a wax imitation of himself put on display at the Madame Tussauds in London as he believes in making his work speak for him.

Amir Khan was born on 14th March 1965 as Aamir Hussain Khan in a Muslim family in Mumbai to Tahir Hussain and Zeenat. He is the uncle of actor Imran Khan. Aamir Khan married his girlfriend Kiran Rao on 28th December 2005 after divorcing his wife of fifteen years (Reena Dutta) with whom he had two children - a son named Junaid and a daughter named Ira. Aamir and Kiran have a son whom they have named Azad Rao Khan. The son was born through a surrogate mother due to complications in Kiran’s pregnancy. He is also rumored to have fathered a son (Jaan Harry Hines) with his ex-girlfriend English writer Jessica Hines in 2003.

Aamir Khan started his career as a child actor in his uncle Nasir Hussain's film Yaadon Ki Baaraat in the year 1973. He made adult acting debut in Ketan Mehta's Holi in the year 1984. This movie unfortunately was a flop. However, Aamir Khan found success as a lead actor in the film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak which was a box office hit.Aamir Khan won the National Film Special Jury Award and Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut for his performance in the movie. After that he has given many highest grossing films in Bollywood. Some of his popular movies are Raja Hindustani, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, Sarfarosh, Rangeela, Raja Hindustani, Ghulam, Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Rang De Basanti, Fanaa, Taare Zameen Par, Ghajini and 3 Idiots. His upcoming films are Dhoom 3: Back in Action (with Katrina Kaif) and Talaash: The Answer Lies Within (with Rani Mukherji and Kareena Kapoor). There are many actresses who have acted opposite Aamir Khan. Given below is a list of his best heroines.


Juhi Chawla

Juhi Chawla is perhaps the only one actress who have acted maximum number of films with Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan. Aamir and Juhi’s first film Qayamat se Qayamat tak was a box office hit. However majority of the films the couple was paired together like Love love love, Tum mere ho, Daulat ki Jung and Aatang hi aatank were flops at the Box office. Hum hain rahi Pyar ke and Ishq did average business at the box office.

Raja Hindustani which said the story of a cab driver from a small town falling in love with a rich girl was a box office success and one of the highest grossing Bollywood films. The controversial kissing scene between the main protagonists added to the charm of the film.

    I think almost all actresses above are well suited with Amir in their respective films. But Juhi was the ideal pair for Amir as they had done their roles perfectly and beautifuly together. "Ghoonghat Ki Aadh Se Dilbar Ka".... one of my favorite songs. Nice work Anamika S.

    @Ruchira I agree with you. He was also luckier than many because he had his uncle Nasir Hussain who is a Director, producer and screenwriter taking an interest on his Career. Celebrities have the power to reach out to millions of people and Satyamev Jayate is an awesome effort in that direction. Thanks for taking your time to read the Hub and commenting.

    @lord de cross Thanks a lot for the appreciation Lord.

    @dainy665dane Ghajini was one of Aamir Khan's best films and Asin really did a great job. Thanks for the appreciation.

    @anusujith I agree with you. I like him because he is a perfectionist. I really appreciate him for his contributions to the society and for his initiative through Satyamev Jayate in spreading awareness about the evils in the society.

    @singhrakeshs Agree with you. Initiatives like Satyamev Jayate can reach out to millions. Even if 1% change can be brought in it would be well worth the effort.

    @Navya Hum hain Rahi Pyar ke was a semi-hit.

    @Kulsum Mehmood Thank you!
