Aamir Khan has to be one of the most loved (and one of the most controversial) names when it comes to Indian cinema.
From being the kid in yaado ki baart to being the fresh faced boy next door in his early movies such as Qayamat se Qayamat tak, Aamir Khan eventually progressed into being the Mr. Perfectionist that we now know him to be.
To reach where he today is, took him several years, but he has done it like no other. From doing several movies a year in the 90s to involving himself with the character and coming out with a movie-a-year in the mid-2000s, Aamir Khan has done it all, and has won it all.
Over the past few years, the man has been in various controversies, be it around the release of Fanaa, or his motive behind Satyamev Jayate, there have been fingers raised at him from time to time, but never has the public sentiment against Aamir been as negative as it now is.
It all sparked off after the ‘intolerance’ comments that he made, stating that his wife has been discussing with him if they should leave India. This sparked off a major controversy and had a lot of unwanted public backlash. However, Aamir Khan turned 51 yesterday, and celebrated his birthday with the media.
On his 51st, Aamir was asked about what does he wish for. To which he replied that his mother is now 80 years old, and he wishes to gift her the home that she used to live in, in her childhood.
“My mother is 80 years old and my biggest wish is that I want to gift her the house in which she spent her childhood. She was staying at a house in Banares then, if I am able to buy that house, I would be very happy.”
Aamir commented that starting 1st of January this year, he is smoke-free. Aamir Khan was seen wearing a T-shirt which was painted by his son, Azad Rao Khan.
Aamir, for his upcoming movie, Dangal, had bulked up to 90kgs, and is now on a weight loss regime. The superstar said that he now stands at 82kgs, and is looking at dropping more weight. “I have reduced to 82 kgs now.
Weight gain karna easy hai, not for everybody though, but it’s more difficult to reduce weight.For next 3 months my dietitian has suggested me to have fish and high protein. For last three weeks I was in US to focus on weight loss. I was doing 6-7 hours exercise, was only sleeping eating and working.”
We wish the megastar a happy birthday and many successful years ahead.
