One film at a time, one shift a day, he decided for creative integrity. He is the highest paid star in hindi cinema. The flip side is that he won't reduce his price for anyone. Despite his bulging pay packet and superstar status the tag we put on him is Actor.

Aamir Hussain Khan, the PET-SHOP boy of the bollywood, was born on 14th March 1965 to Tahir and Zeena Hussain Khan. He is having one younger brother Faizal who is a VJ and an Actor and two sisters Nikhat and Farhad.

Aamir Khan let the cat out of the bag when he revealed that he was secretly married to long-time sweetheart Reena. With Aamir being a Muslim and she, a Hindu, matters were complicated but the two eloped and got married. They have two children son Junaid and daughter Aira. But in 2002 he was legally separated with his wife.

Drawn towards the magic of celluloid, Aamir Khan made his first screen appearance as a child artiste in filmmaker uncle Nasir Hussain's "Yaadon Ki Baaraat". Aamir Khan, is known as AK everywhere, although his first movie was Holi, but his debut film as a Hero Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak turned out to be a blockbuster of 1988 and set a new trend in cinema. In 1996, he has got the Best Actor award for his outstanding performance in Raja Hindustani which was a smash hit at the box office and he has placed himself among the top heroes of the Bollywood.

Aamir Khan's scrupulous attitude towards acting has drawn its share of attention, to the extent that costars complain that working with him is too taxing.

He acted and wrote the screenplay for the film Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke (1993).

Aamir Khan is known for his efforts to create believable characters, rather then just playing himself in film after film. He will go to great lengths to give a convincing portrayal -- including, it is said, drinking heavily in order to play a drunken scene in Raja Hindustani, even though he doesn't drink in real life.

Aamir Khan has done playback singing for himself in the film Ghulam which went on to become a success.

Sarfarosh and Dil Chahat Hai were again the blockbuster films. He has got the best actor award for Dil Chahata Hai. This movie created a new trend of hairstyle and beard for youngster.

In 2000, Aamir turned into a producer with his first venture-a period film ‘Lagaan’. The movie was a huge box-office hit and was also nominated for Academy Awards for the Best Foreign Language Film. Aamir had two big hits in 2001 ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Dil Chatha Hai’.

Aamir took a sabbatical as was going through a lot of turmoil in his personal life; the actor was having a clandestine affair with a British journalist Jessica Hines which was responsible for his divorse in 2002. Aamir also has an illicit baby with Jessica named Jaan Hines who was born on September 14th 2003. After his break up with Jessica, the actor started dating his close friend Kiran Rao with whom he tied the knot on December 28th 2005. Aamir Khan is probably the only actor in Bollywood who boycotts all award ceremonies as he feels that awards in India are rigged.

Aamir Khan is one of the most intellect actors in the business and has given some of the biggest hits like ‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘Fanaa’. Post ‘Rang De Basanti’, the actor has been extending support to a lot of social causes; Aamir strongly advocated for the cause of the farmer as part of the ‘Narmada Bachao Andolan’ which led to the ban of his movie ‘Fanaa’ in Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh.

Aamir Khan endorses some big brands like Coke, Titan and Toyota Innova. This versatile actor believes in quality work and only works on one movie at a time so he can get into the guts of his character; well, that also happens to be the reason why Aamir has acted in only 35 movies in a career spanning over 21 years.
