Today marks the 54th birthday of Aamir Khan, an actor who has contributed to the Indian cinema in more than one way. He thrives on perfection and on his birthday today, we wish him much happiness. Taking a look at his incredible journey so far, he’s an actor who began acting at the age of 8! You read it right. Since then, Aamir has sailed his ship through almost all the genres possible. And as we celebrate the birthday of Mr Perfectionist, here’s taking a look at the genres that he’s rocked and how

Romance:

Raise your hand if Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander (JJWS) aren’t your guilty pleasures and you can resist Aamir in them. Because we definitely can’t! Aamir has been the romantic hero for a generation in Bollywood. Those dreamy eyes looking at Sonali Bendre in Sarfarosh or Aamir lip-synching Pehla Nasha amidst the pine trees are embossed in our memories. There was a time when Aamir was ruling this genre with back-to-back hits including Raja Hindustani.

Comedy:

If you are a typical Bollywood fan, than our hearts might have said it together, Andaz Apna Apna. It is said that comedy out of all is the most difficult genre and we must say Aamir has excelled in this as well. His banter with Salman Khan in AAA is something we can watch on loop. Last year the actor proved that time and a number of serious films have not taken away his art of making people laugh. His character in the film Secret Superstar was everything the he isn’t. Tacky clothes, coloured hair, and that weird attitude had us laughing. Other memorable comic roles include Rangeela and Ishq.

Social:

As we said earlier, Aamir knows his social duties more than anyone else and he has proved it by acting and producing films that talk about an issue or a problem that affects us directly or indirectly. Taare Zameen Par where he touched the taboo subject around special kids or 3 Idiots where he addressed peer pressure and made us feel AALLL IS WELL! He is our rockstar. Even as a producer, he has been creating content like Dhobi Ghat and the recent one Rubaru Roshni which talks about many issues and enlightens us in many ways.

Historicals:

Well let’s not forget Aamir has an Oscar-nominated film to his credit, Lagaan was a film that went ahead and made many records. It is one of the most remarkable films of his career. Talking about period films he mainly has three to his credit, Mangal PandeyLagaan and Thugs of Hindostaan.

Action:

Kalpana was killed. We all remember the tattoo and a roaring Aamir on whose chest it was tattooed. Transforming himself completely in what he is not – physically as well as mentally in Ghajini was commendable. Aamir made the impossible possible in the times when none even thought about it. InDhoom 3 he played a circus artist with as much ease and perfection.

Which of these is your favourite Aamir Khan film? Let us know in the comments section below.

Bollywood took a brilliant start to 2019 with back to back massive hits in the first three months. The first quarter was really fantastic with massive hits like Uri: The Surgical, Total Dhamaal, Kesari, Gully Boy and so on! The second quarter, on the other hand, did see some disappointments like Kalank, Student of the Year 2 and India’s Most Wanted. Things did slow down at the ticket window and the trade was worried. But Bollywood bounced back with back to back blockbusters – Bharat and Kabir Singh. And with that the Hindi film industry ended the first half of 2019 with a bang. But which is the highest grossing film of 2019 till now?

Well, with Kabir Singh continuing its box office run and with it estimated to earn a lifetime collection of Rs 250 crore, it is going to be the highest grossing film of the first half of 2019. Uri: The Surgical Strike and Bharat follow suit and complete the top 3 highest grossing films of the first half of 2019. Kesari, Total Dhamaal, Gully Boy, De De Pyaar De, Luka Chuppi, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Badla follow suit and complete the top 10 list.
