Aamir Khan has been a thorough entertainer, churning creative films for the last 3 decades. On the occasion of his 53rd birthday, we bring to you some exclusive insights into the maestro’s life.
Aamir Khan had a rather strange connection with the market in China. His film 3 Idiots (2009) released in Chinese homes through piracy. The population in China loved the concept of his spin on the Education system. Ardent fans began to follow his work and saw him in PK, followed by portions of socially relevant TV show Satyameva Jayate.
By the time of Dangal’s release last year, Aamir Khan was a well-known public figure in China. Additionally, the vast number of screens in China helped in the distribution of Aamir Khan’s brand of films. China most populous country, hosts 45,000 movie screens in comparison to India’s 5000 screens. His recent outing Secret Superstar, in which he had a brief cameo, opened to a massive 11,000 screens in China, collecting huge revenues to the tune of 750 CR.
Aamir Khan excitedly adds:
China’s love and adulation for Aamir Khan’s films largely depends on similar cultural contexts and emotional frequencies.
On the personal front, Aamir’s 3 children, Junaid (24) has just begun interning with his dad, daughter Ira (20) is a fabulous painter pursuing liberal arts and youngest son Azaad (6) loves spending time with dad.
Professionally, Aamir Khan is in Jodhpur completing the shoot of Thugs of Hindostan along with Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh.
