Aamir Khan

Aamir Hussain Khan (born March 14, 1965, in Mumbai, India) - is a prominent Bollywood actor. He rose to stardom with the film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988).

Aamir was born into a film-industry clan. His father Tahir Hussain is a producer; his uncle Nasir Hussain was a director. He has acted in a few films directed by his cousin Mansoor Khan. He is the brother of Faisal Khan, with whom he acted in the 2000 film Mela. He is the cousin of Tariq of the Yaadon Ki Barat and Hum Kisise Kum Nahin fame.

Aamir began his career as a child actor in the film Yaadon Ki Baraat (1973), when he was eight years old. He then appeared as a child in two more films, Madhosh (1974) and Holi (1984).

In 1988 he gained stardom in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak which was his first leading role. It was directed by his cousin Mansoor Khan. He followed this with many other films in the 1990s which either did well at the box office or flopped.

After his debut his successful films included Dil (1990), Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander (1992), Rangeela (1995) and Raja Hindustani (1996).
He acted as well as wrote the screenplay for the film Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke (1993). He has also done playback singing for himself in Ghulam (1998).

Aamir is known for his efforts to create believable characters, rather than just playing himself in film after film. He will go to great lengths to give a convincing portrayal -- including, it is said, drinking heavily in order to play a drunken scene in Raja Hindustani (1996), even though he doesn"t drink in real life.

Aamir is also known for working on only one film at a time, unusual in the Bollywood film industry, because he wants to give his best to each film. Detractors say that his penchant for perfection sometimes leads to clashes with directors who don"t listen to his objections or let him re-shoot a scene he thinks sub-par.
