    Happy Birthday Aamir: The thinking man's Khan

    On his 53rd birthday, here are some professional qualities and traits that make Aamir Khan the unique Bollywood phenomenon that he is. Action movies were ruling the roost in the 1980s, but QSQT bucked the trend and ushered in an era of love stories/family dramas driven by blockbuster soundtracks. The movie catapulted Aamir to stardom and offers streamed in. Due to poor selection of roles, his next few films – ‘Love Love Love’, ‘Tum Mere Ho’, ‘Awwal Number’, ‘Jawani Zindabad’ and ‘Afsana Pyaar Ka’ – tanked badly with Inder Kumar’s ‘Dil’ being his his only hit movie between 1989-1991.

    Beyond song and dance: How actors train for their roles as sports persons

    Dangal: Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan, is known to go the extra mile while preparing for all his roles, and with his latest, Dangal, he has taken perfection to a whole new level. Apart from gaining around 20 kilos for the film, where he portrays wrestler Mahavir Phogat, Khan also has been going through rigorous workout sessions to get the stamina and strength required for a wrestler. Khan has also been spending hours learning the game, and learnt a wrestling move – dhobi pachad - in ten days.

    One-one-one with Aamir Khan: I want to gift my mother a house in Benaras on her 80th birthday

    Receiving journalists on his birthday, Aamir Khan didn’t seem to be a person who has recently crossed fifty. The 51-year-old actor was proudly sporting a tee that carried a print of a painting by his son Azaad Rao Khan (see picture). He looked at least 20 years younger. With the recent controversies about ‘intolerance’ behind him, Aamir seemed very relaxed and jovial.
