Aamir Khan (The Perfectionist)

Aamir Khan born on 14th March 1965 in Bombay(now Mumbai). His Father, Tahir Hussain, is a film producer. Aamir started his debut in the film industry at a fledgling age of eight in his uncle Nasir Hussain's movie "Yadon ki barat". His professional career started with the film "Holi" in 1984. His stupendous performance in "Qayamat se qayamat tak" took him to new heights in 1988. The famous song "Papa kahte hein bada naam karega" was one of the key attributes of this popular movie. His sterling performace in the movie 'Raja Hindustani' earned him the most coveted Film Fare Award for the Best Actor.

His biggest commercial success "Lagaan" credited to both as an actor cum film producer. The Filmfare bestowed him with one more award as the Best Actor in 2002. His directorial debut with the movie "Taare zammen per" in 2007 earned him the Filmfare award for Best Director which goes to show his multifacetedness. Aamir has done playback singing in a few movies and the song 'Aati kya khandala' from movie Ghulam is very popular even now.

Aamir married Reena Dutta during the years of Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. They had two children, a son named Junaid and a daughter named Ira. Reena was involved in Khan's career brieflywhen she worked as a producer for Lagaan. Khan filed for divorce next year ending the 15 years of married life with Reena and taking the custody of both the children. He got acquainted to Kiran Rao during the filming of Lagaan and that resulted a new knot. Kiran had suffered a miscarriage which was disclosed by the actor himself on his blog on 16th August 2009.
“I have bad news folks. Kiran and I lost our baby. Despite our best efforts we were unable to avert a miscarriage,” the actor wrote in his blog.

The movie "Gazani" portrayed his transformation from the early chocolate boy to a full blown super hero image in bollywood. This movie kindled my spirit to sketch his Gazani's look. Aamir worked extremely hard for this movie in tune with the requirement of having a strong physique with extraordinary look. Aamir Khan toiled almost for a year working out three hours a day with his health instructor Satyajit Desai. The result is a well chiselled body of 6 pack abs much to the adoration of his female followers. He employs his time judiciously and prefers to do one movie a year which demands a perfect role. Nowadays his one more hit "3idiots" running in theaterss in excellent pace. Keep rocking Aamir ji and very very happy new year 2010!!

Your comments are most welcome on his sketch!!
