Born on the 14th of march 1965, Aamir is the son of producer Tahir Hussain andZeenat Hussain. He has 2 brothers, Faizal and Hyder ali Khan and two sisters ,Nikhat and Farhad.
Not many know that Aamir has done quite a few films as child artists such as Yaadon Ki Baraat, and Madhosh. But it was not until Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988),directed by his cousin Mansoor khan, that actually got this actor huge success.
Though aamir had the priviledge of being born in a noted family, his struggle in bollywood was no less than a new comer. He worked hard on his acting abilities and gradually went up to be a superstar of the 1990’s.
With films like Dil, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Rangeela and Raja Hindustani, there was just no lookin back, for Aamir. Films of every kind kept falling in his lap which gave him a golden opportunity to prove his versatility.
Initially Aamir did a lot of light comedy and romantic flicks. He totally succeeded in winning the hearts of every viewer and gave unforgettable performances in Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, Andaz Apna Apna, Ghulam, Ishq and Mann. But very soon this image was overtaken by the serious characters he played in Sarfarosh (1999), Earth(!998), Fanaa (2006) and Rang De Basanti(2006)
Today Aamir does films that are aesthetically different, offbeat and critically acclaimed. He is one actor who has shown every character onscreen with equal zeal and reality. His character of Akaash in Dil Chahta Hai is of a happy-go-lucky young boy who takes life easily and stays away from girls. The audiences have adored Aamir in almost every role he has ever played.
In his career of 15 long years, Aamir is now all set to go behind the camera. His 1st production Lagaan, was released in 2001. This film redefined film making to the core with a relatively unconditional theme. It was a period film and was also nominated to the Oscars.
Aamir has various shades to his life, film and career. He keeps private and doesn’t believe in most of the film awards. He was different from the other stars right from the beginning and he has been able to retain this freshness even today!
