He`s known as much for his talent as for his stoic refusal to talk to the press or attend film award shows, no matter that he`s winning one himself. Actor-activist Aamir Khan celebrates his birthday this Friday and we thought it appropriate to celebrate with a pick of some of his best films.
Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988)
This was the film that made the entire nation fall in love with the new chocolate-boy hero. Aamir Khan was only 23 when he had the audiences eating out of the palm of his hand. The camera loved him and so did his fans. His crackling chemistry with Juhi Chawla only helped the tragic love story become a resounding success. The film earned him the Filmfare Best Debut AwardĂ‚Â—ironic, considering he would go ahead and shun all film awards, making an exception for the National Awards.
