Aamir Khan – the name says it all, doesn’t it? Probably the only actor in the country today, who has earned the ‘trust’ of his audience. Fondly known as ‘The Perfectionist’ of Bollywood, the actor has started many trends and redefined the theories of Bollywood with several path-breaking films, including the Oscar nominated Lagaan.
Aamir made his silver screen debut as a child artist in ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’ and as a lead actor in ‘Holi’. But he rose to stardom with his 2nd movie ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ and since then there has been no looking back. His contribution to Indian Cinema and social causes has been immense.
Today on his 48th birthday, we have some of Aamir Khan’s most memorable scenes.
Rancho’s Demo – 3 Idiots: As Rancho, Aamir accidentally enters the wedding of Virus’s (Boman) daughter with his 2 friends Raju and Farhan. He teaches some fundas to Kareena and then when he is caught by Boman, Aamir tries to explain that they actually belong to the department of Science. It’s one of the most ‘fun’ scenes that Aamir has been a part of.
ACP Rathore – Sarfarosh: Aamir portrayed the character of an IPS officer to perfection in Sarfarosh, a movie based on cross border terrorism. He sounds so real when he explains his reasons for joining Police to Mukesh Rishi. Watch it to believe it!
Tapori Munna in Restaurant – Rangeela: Now this one is special. Aamir Khan played a tapori Munna who sells movie tickets in black. What happens when a tapori fellow takes his dream girl to a 5 star Hotel for the first time? Must Watch!
Ya Jhakaas Amar – Andaz Apna Apna: In one of Bollywood’s best ever comedy films, Aamir’s tickled the funny bone of the audience by displaying his superb comic timing. Watch him change colors when he gets to know that Salman’s pistol is actually empty. Hilarious!
Akash in True Love – Dil Chahta Hai: Akash (Aamir) shows his true love and pain when he confesses his love and speaks exactly the same lines to Shalini (Preity) as he did earlier in one of the light-hearted scenes in the movie. Brilliantly directed by Farhan Akhtar and equally well enacted by Aamir.
