Faisal Khan (born 3 August 1966, Mumbai, India) is a Bollywood actor.

Khan is the son of producer Tahir Hussain. His brother is Aamir Khan who is an actor and producer, and he has two sisters, Nikhat Khan who is a producer and Farhat Khan. His uncle Nasir Hussain was a producer and director.

As a child he made a brief appearance in his uncle Nasir Hussain's 1969 film Pyar Ka Mausam playing Shashi Kapoor's role as a child. He made his adult film debut in 1988, playing a minor role as a villain in his brother Aamir's film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. He played another bit part in his brother's 1992 film Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar.

He got his first leading role in the 1994 film Madhosh which was produced by his father Tahir Hussain and directed by Vikram Bhatt. After a five-year hiatus, he made his comeback alongside his brother in Mela (2000). He appeared in several films that fared poorly at the box office.[1] He also appeared in the TV serial Aandhi in 2003.[1] He made his last film appearance in Chand Bujh Gaya in 2005. After a decade, he is making a comeback to films in Chinar - Dastaan-E-Ishq.[2]

In 2007, Faisal was reported missing for two days. Faisal had filed a report to the police several days earlier accusing his brother Aamir of keeping him confined in his home because he was mentally ill.[3] He was eventually traced to Pune and brought back to Mumbai where he went through a medical examination.[4] He was eventually diagnosed with a mental disorder, and his brother Aamir and his father were in a custody battle over Faisal that garnered much press coverage. Faisal's custody was awarded to his father Tahir.[5]
