Versatility is synonymous with one of the greatest Khans of Bollywood, Aamir Khan. Also known as Mr. Perfectionist for his love for detailing, there aren’t any pair of shoes made the superstar cannot step into. Be it playing a die-hard romantic or a comedian or a true blue patriot or an honest police officer or an engineering student or an aged father – Aamir slipped under the skin of all of these characters and more with great ease.
5 Cult Classic Films To Celebrate Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan’s 55th Birthday
1. Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak
3. Raja Hindustani
Starring Aamir Khan and Manisha Koirala, 1999 film Mann is recommended for hopeless romantics. Not many are aware that the movie was first offered to Khiladi Akshay Kumar, but aren’t we glad Aamir eventually did it?
Besides, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Tabu and Nandita Das were also in the running for Priya’s role. Manisha ended up bagging it!
5. Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar
Aamir had predicted the fate of Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar is its production stage itself! “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar will be a cult film for ages,’ he had said then. And boy, ain’t that true? Besides Aamir, the movie starred Mamik Singh, Deven Bhojani, Ayesha Jhulka, Pooja Bedi and even ‘little Aamir,’ Imran Khan.
The shoot took a long time to complete and many actors had dropped out in the process. But eventually, when it released, it was a success!
