Audiences lapped up Aamir’s 2014 satirical science fiction comedy PK, number two on the all-time Bollywood grossing list, for its questioning of religious superstitions.
Three Indian actors sharing a surname have ruled Bollywood box offices across three decades, but the success of wrestling blockbuster Dangal means it’s Aamir who’s currently king of the Khans.
Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Salman Khan have been the undoubted superstars of the Hindi film industry since the mid-1990s, taking it in turns to reign supreme.
But with Dangal smashing records worldwide, Salman suffering a rare flop and Shah Rukh without a major hit of three years, the crown for now is firmly placed on Aamir’s head.
“The Khans used to be on a par but Aamir has moved ahead and Shah Rukh is kind of lagging behind recently,” film trade analyst Ramesh Bala said of the trio who all turn 52 this year and who are not related.
Dangal has set new and previously unimaginable parameters for the box office potential of a Bollywood movie since it was first released in India in December last year.
“Found an interesting old working still from the shooting of Inder Kumar’s Dil,” wrote Anupam Kher
Anupam Kher has a treasure trove of throwback pictures and he frequently delights his Instafam with them. On Saturday, the actor chanced upon one such throwback picture which happens to be from the sets of the 1990 film Dil. BTW, did we tell you that the photograph also features Aamir Khan? In the photograph, Aamir’s expression is simply priceless. Just like us, Anupam Kher also loved Aamir’s expression in the picture and he asked his fans to guess what the actor was thinking. Aamir, who is largely a social media recluse hasn’t reacted to Anupam Kher’s post now but we would love to see his response.
Sharing the post on his Instagram profile, Anupam Kher wrote: “Found an interesting old working still from the shooting of Inder Kumar’s Dil. The movie released almost 30 years back. The scene was shot on the Juhu Beach. We had not yet started taking ourselves seriously. Life was innocent. What does think Dear Aamir is thinking here? Will be interesting to know your thoughts.” He accompanied the post with hashtags like #throwback and #LessonsLifeTaughtMeUnknowingly.
Anupam Kher played the role of Aamir Khan’s father in Dil, which also starred Madhuri Dixit. Anupam Kher and Aamir have co-starred in several films, which include Parampara, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahi and Rang De Basanti among others.
Aamir Khan’s last big release was Thugs Of Hindostan, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The actor will next be seen in Lal Singh Chaddha, which is a remake of the 1994 Hollywood film Forrest Gump, which featured Tom Hanks in the lead role.
Sukhvinder Singh is a singer par excellence and his body of work is proof of that. His singing prowess and booming voice still echo in the minds of his fans. Sukhvinder has given us many unforgettable songs through the 90s and 2000s and has always been a go-to artist for Shah Rukh Khan.
But did you know that Sukhvinder was challenged by Aamir Khan once and the prize was to record for the Dangal actor. Unfortunately, Sukhvinder lost out on Aamir and blew the chance of working with him. According to the singing superstar, Aamir got to know about his quirk of singing in the dark.
So, he asked Sukhvinder to sing in dim lights in front of him and offered a film if he succeeds in the task. Unfortunately, luck was not on Singh’s side that day and he made a mistake, thus losing out on a film with the Lal Singh Chadha star.

As parts of the country grapple with acute water scarcity, the central government on Monday launched a five-point water conservation campaign – Jal Shakti Abhiyan.
The campaign found two Bollywood superstar endorsers – Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan – who echoed the need for water conservation, contributing to a better future.
Just hours after the two posted videos of them asking people to conserve water, Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised them for their efforts in creating awareness.
“Extremely valid points by @aamir_khan on the need to conserve water and create awareness at the grassroots level,” said PM Modi, re-tweeting Aamir Khan’s video.
The Prime Minister’s reply did not go unnoticed by Aamir Khan, who then extended his support to the new government initiative.
“.@narendramodi Sir, the initiative taken up by you of making water the fundamental and primary issue for all of us is an extremely important step. Our wholehearted support is with you,” he replied.
In a second tweet, PM Modi also responded to Amitabh Bachchah or Big B calling his wise words inspiring.
“Wise words from @SrBachchan, which will surely inspire you towards conserving water and urging others to do so as well! #JanShakti4JalShakti,” PM Modi said.
The videos, over a minute long, by both Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan were shared on the Jal Shakti Abhiyan Twitter account before PM Modi shared them on his official Twitter account that has 48.3 Million followers.
The time-bound conservation mission will focus on 1592 stressed blocks in 256 districts and will be centered on five aspects – water conservation and rainwater harvesting, renovation of traditional and other water bodies, reuse of water and recharging of structures, watershed development, and intensive afforestation.
The campaign will run through citizen participation during monsoon (July 1-September 15). An additional phase will run from October 1 to November 30 for states receiving northeast retreating monsoons.
On Sunday, during his monthly radio address “Mann Ki Baat“, PM Modi requested citizens to help conserve water.
Over the past few weeks, Chennai has been dying up, affecting close to 9 million people in the city. Severe water shortage has also been reported from parts of Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal.

Our source tells us, “Aamir is known to delve deep into his character. He had been wanting to make Forrest Gump for quite a few years but getting the rights took some time. But now, he’s completely devoted himself to the project. He is currently getting into the proper shape to play the younger Lal Singh Chaddha. He will lose at least 12-14 kilos now because he needs to look leaner than what he did in Thugs Of Hindostan.”

The informer reveals, “The movie opens in the ’70s with the India-Pakistan War of 1971. Advait Chandan, the director, along with Aamir, is sitting and researching material from the time zone. They are planning it on the lines of a socio-political drama. Along with that, they will also capture the whole period when Emergency was declared in India. They also plan to show the assassination of Indira Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi among other events. Aamir’s character will age through the years and will travel to present times. Apart from the 1971 War, a brief part of the film’s second half will be about the Kargil War.”
