Born on March 14, 1965, Aamir Khan’s full name is Mohammed Aamir Hussain Khan. His father Tahir Hussain was a film producer. Aamir is the eldest of four siblings; actor Faisal Khan is his younger brother, and two sisters – Farhat and Nikhat Khan.
Many of Aamir Khan’s relatives are members of the film fraternity. Late producer-director Nasir Hussain is Aamir Khan’s paternal uncle. Actor Imran Khan is his nephew. His second wife Kiran Rao is a producer.
Before making his debut with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak in 1988, Aamir featured in several films as a child artiste. Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, Andaz Apna Apna, Rangeela, Raja Hindustani, Sarfarosh, Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Talaash: The Answer Lies Within and Dangal are some of his blockbusters.
Aamir Khan was honoured by the Government of India with the Padma Shri in 2003 and the Padma Bhushan in 2010.
In 1986, Aamir Khan married Reena Dutta. They have two children, a son named Junaid and a daughter, Ira. But in 2002, the two parted ways and filed for divorce in 2002.
Three years later, in 2005, Aamir Khan married Kiran Rao, who had been an assistant director to Ashutosh Gowariker during the filming of Lagaan. The couple was blessed with a baby boy, whom they named Azad Rao Khan in 2011. Azad was born through a surrogate mother.
Aamir Khan grooves with Farha Naaz in one of his earlier films. They starred together in several films including Jawaani Deewani.
Much before Lagaan, Aamir Khan played cricket on screen in Dev Anand’s eminently forgettable Awwal Number.
