Aamir Khan is an Indian actor, producer, director, playback singer, screenwriter, and television personality. Khan first appeared on screen at the age of eight in a minor role in his uncle Nasir Hussain's film Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973).[2] In 1983, he acted in and worked as an assistant director on Paranoia, a short film directed by Aditya Bhattacharya,[3] following which he assisted Hussain on two of his directorial ventures—Manzil Manzil (1984) and Zabardast (1985).[3][4] As an adult, Khan's first acting project was a brief role in the 1984 experimental social drama Holi.[5]

Khan's first leading role came opposite Juhi Chawla in the highly successful tragic romance Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988).[6] His performance in the film and in the thriller Raakh (1989) earned him a Special Mention at the 36th National Film Awards ceremony.[7] He went on to establish himself in Bollywood with roles in several lucrative films of the 1990s, including the romantic drama Dil (1990), the comedy-drama Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993), and the 871 million (about US$24.5 million in 1996)[I]-grossing romance Raja Hindustani (1996).[8][9] He also played against type in the Deepa Mehta-directed Canadian-Indian co-production Earth (1998).[10] In 1999, Khan launched a production company, Aamir Khan Productions,[11] whose first release Lagaan (2001) was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film,[12] and earned him the National Film Award for Best Popular Film.[13][14] Also in 2001, he starred alongside Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna in the acclaimed drama Dil Chahta Hai.[15] Lagaan and Dil Chahta Hai are cited in the media as defining films of Hindi cinema.[16][17] After a four-year absence from film, Khan portrayed the eponymous lead in Mangal Pandey: The Rising (2005), a period film that underperformed at the box office,[18] after which he played leading roles in two top-grossing films of 2006—Fanaa and Rang De Basanti.[19]

Khan made his directorial debut with Taare Zameen Par in 2007, a drama on dyslexia starring Darsheel Safary, in which Khan also played a supporting role.[20] The film proved to be a critical and commercial success,[11] winning him the National Film Award for Best Film on Family Welfare.[21][22] Khan played a man suffering from anterograde amnesia in the 2008 thriller Ghajini,[23][24] after which he portrayed an engineering student in the comedy-drama 3 Idiots (2009),[25] and a reclusive artist in the drama Dhobi Ghat (2010), which he also produced.[26] He co-starred alongside Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra as the antagonist of the adventure film Dhoom 3 in 2013,[27] following which he played an alien in the over 7 billion (US$100 million)-grossing satire PK.[28][29] Four of Khan's films—Ghajini, 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3, and PK— have held records for being the highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time.[1] In addition to acting in films, Khan has developed and featured as the host of the television talk show Satyamev Jayate (2012–14).[30]
