NEW DELHI: Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who turned 57 on Monday, is a name that is often considered synonymous with perfection in the Hindi film industry.

Born to Mohammed Aamir Hussain Khan and Zeenat Hussain in 1965, the actor is the recipient of numerous awards, including nine Filmfare Awards, four National Film Awards, and an AACTA Award. In 2003, he was also honoured with the Padma Shri and the Padma Bhushan in 2010.

Here’s taking a look back at Aamir’s work to understand how he became one of the biggest and most influential actors in Bollywood today.

Sarfarosh (1999): Considered as one of the finest cop-dramas to have ever come out of Bollywood, this gem of a film has Aamir playing a no-nonsense police officer ACP Rathore with complete effect. Although the basic plot wasn’t very original, the subject treatment is what made it an interesting watch.

Lagaan (2001): Aamir achieved new heights of success by working on this Ashutosh Gowariker directorial which revolved around a cricket match between India and England in order to get rid of the agricultural debts in a village that rarely receives rainfall.

Rang De Basanti (2006): The movie showed a bunch of hedonistic and irreverent youngsters playing the part of freedom fighters and eventually awakening to the fact that nothing much has changed. It spoke the language of rebel, zeal, the idea of collective justice and displayed the power of the youth in its right sense.

Dangal (2016): In the movie, Aamir chose to play an ageing, overweight father to four girls who leaves no stone unturned to introduce his daughters to the world of wrestling. ‘Dangal’ took a jibe on sexist issues and hit the right note on the girl power.
