The perfectionist of Bollywood turns 49 today. As he busies himself with the second season of Satyamev Jayate 2, amidst all the work I doubt if the actor has any time for play at all
The perfectionist of Bollywood turns 49 today. As he busies himself with the second season of Satyamev Jayate 2, amidst all the work I doubt if the actor has any time for play at all. But I am sure there will be a pretty little cake waiting for him, right there at his lavish abode, with wife Kiran and son Azad waiting for him to blow the candles and act all surprised.
As Khan turns a year older, you can’t help but notice his undying passion to do something different every year. The actor’s diligence and enthusiasm proves that age is nothing but a worthless number at the end of the day.
I pick my all-time favourite Aamir Khan films on his b’day; make sure you share your list too!
Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak: Aamir was such a pretty boy in the movie, all young and skinny. There was this ‘fire in the belly’ attitude about him as he made his proper Bollywood debut with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. He romanced like a true lover boy and he died like an absolute hero. He set the bar super high right with his first film.
Taare Zameen Par: Khan bought into notice a very serious loophole in the education system in the film. His efforts were applauded by the audience and critics alike. I am sure half the people didn’t even know what ‘dyslexic’ means before they saw the movie. Aamir loves to bring about a change, not necessarily a radical one, but he definitely does more than his teeny-weeny bit.
Dil Chahta Hain: We had seen his comical side in Andaz Apna Apna. But that was loud and very in-your-face. In Dil Chahta Hai, Khan surprised us with his deadpan and oh-so-sarcastic humour. He was a pleasure to watch, as he flirted unabashedly, got cheeky with his friends and irritated people with his ‘I don’t care a hoot’ attitude.
Sarfarosh: You had to feel a twinge of patriotism when Aamir passionately declared, ‘Yeh mere mulk ka mamla hai’ in one of the scenes. He played a cop you would instantly fall head over heels in love with. He wasn’t jingoistic, he was just serious about his job, and that’s what I loved about his character. This is a must watch for one of those days when you feel proud about being an Indian. For the rest of the days, there are other Aamir Khan films, wink wink!
3 Idiots: Aamir again made sure he leaves a thought provoking message in his film. It’s not just about sky-high marks but also channelizing your energies towards things you are passionate about. He played this endearing engineer who loves to play with machines and invent new stuff. Although some scenes were a li’l exaggerated, I will overlook that because of the earnest effort…
