Happy Birthday, Aamir Khan!


Happy Birthday!!!!!!!
Aamir (born on March 14, 1965) was first introduced as a child artiste in the film Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973). However, he did not act in umpteen films like many of the child artistes are known to do. Aamir went on to become the state tennis champion for Maharashtra. Aamir also fell in love with Reena, the girl next door, in the meantime. He proposed to her the day he turned 21, and she accepted. But apparently, there was opposition since she was from a Hindu family and he, from a devout Islamic one. So, they eloped, got married and returned to their homes. Aamir's first film as solo hero was 'Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak' after which he never had to look back. He became a phenomenal success with that launchpad of a film. But from there he has come a long way too. From an actor who blossomed with youthful romances, he came of age and came into reckoning with sterling performances and has eventually evolved into a responsible maker and a creative visionary.

the info about his movies and the characters are such noteworthy, besides the year of release is also valuable for those who are interrested on Aamir..... it would be fantastic if you post something special about Aamir's directorial venture(TZP), the unique way he handles the characters and scripts & also the journey from QSQT to TZP in a comparative manner.....
