Aamir Khan is a famous actor, producer, and director of Hindi films who is regarded as one of the finest actors and youth icons in India.
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.
Aamir Khan is a second cousin to Dr Najma Heptulla, previous Chairperson of Rajya Sabha. He is also an inheritor of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, the well-known academic and freedom fighter.
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.
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.

He has two kids from his first marriage, a daughter, Ira and a son, Junaid. The couple divorced in the end of 2002. In 2005, he tied the knot with Kiran Rao who was the assistant director of the film Lagaan. He is an avid disciple of Dada Vaswani.
